Project Details

Description

The FASIT project (Fleksible Arbejdsorganisationer, Styring og IT-støtte) addresses a crucial problem in modern manufacturing, namely the fact that existing computer-based production planning and control systems severely hamper the introduction of autonomous working groups and other kinds of shop floor control. The objective of the FASIT project is thus to develop IT-support for autonomous working groups in flexible manufacturing and the project involves in-depth field studies and prototype development work. The project is complemented by parallel activities of organizational redesign and education which are funded by the Educational Fund of Danish industry.
