Design and Modelling of Production Systems

Project Details

Description

The mission of the project is to develop new ways of designing and modelling production systems. The project will
compare the design of a production for an electro-mechanical production system with the design for a production system inside healthcare and non-mechanical production. The term production system should be defined widely. One goal for a production system is to minimize the throughput time with a minimal usage of ressources. This goal should be obtained by fulfilling the specified mission and politics for the system. Simulation will be used as a tool to describe the different production systems. Possibilities for transferring theories developed inside traditional electro-mechanical production into areas such as healthcare will be investigated by analysing the result of the comparison. Specified companies will be used as cases.
