  1. 1. Levels of Automation in Production Systems

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Jörgen Frohm; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Arbetsvetenskap och ergonomi; Work sciences and ergonomics; Produktionsteknik; Manufacturing engineering; production; automation; task allocation; levels of automation; measurement;

    Abstract : Although automation is often seen as an efficient way to achieve cost-efficient production and to relieve humans from heavy or dangerous tasks, it also has its drawbacks. Earlier research has shown that increasing levels of automation in unforeseen production situations can be related to production disturbances. READ MORE

  2. 2. Factors affecting production ramp-up performance

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Magnus Berg; Högskolan i Jönköping.; Högskolan i Jönköping.; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY Industrial engineering and economy Manufacturing engineering and work sciences; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Industriell teknik och ekonomi Produktion och arbetsvetenskap; Industriell teknik och ekonomi; Industrial engineering and economy; Industriell organisation; administration och ekonomi; Industrial organisation; administration and economics; Produktionsteknik; Manufacturing engineering; Production ramp-up; Production systems; Manufacturing industry;

    Abstract : The ability to successfully ramp-up the production when new products are to be introduced has become a critical issue for many manufacturing companies. Increased globalisation which implies severe competition makes it important both for original equipment manufacturers but also for their suppliers to perform better than potential competitors during ramp-up.

  3. 3. Towards Realistic Visualisation of Production Systems

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Erik Lindskog; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Realistic visualisation; Production systems; Manufacturing systems; 3D laser scanning; Point clouds;

    Abstract : Redesigning a production system is a complex process for which numerous virtual tools are available to support the planning process. These virtual tools are used to forecast and analyse the production system prior to implementing the redesign, which makes it possible to identify and prevent costly problems during the planning process.

  4. 4. Kaikaku in production

    University dissertation from Mälardalen University : Västerås

    Author : Yuji Yamamoto; Mälardalens högskola.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; production system; continous improvement; radical improvement; Japanese industry; TECHNOLOGY Industrial engineering and economy Manufacturing engineering and work sciences; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Industriell teknik och ekonomi Produktion och arbetsvetenskap; Industrial Economics and Organization; industriell ekonomi och organisation;

    Abstract : In today’s fast-changing and dynamic business environment, the pressures on manufacturing companies to compete on the global arena have been intensified. Production is challenged to handle and benefit from ever increasing competitions in terms of cost, delivery capability, and flexibility. READ MORE

  5. 5. Challenges in Global Multi-Variant Serial Production - A Study of Manufacturing Engineering Processes

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Pierre E. C. Johansson; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Global production networks; product variety; product and process standardization; product and production complexity;

    Abstract : Global manufacturing companies have hard times to manage their global production networks as dispersion in their networks increases. Such dispersion is caused by the increasing level of product variety and more parameters to control as the networks grow. Handling product variety becomes more difficult as products become more complex and integrated. READ MORE
