Towards robust and efficient production at Voestalpine Polynorm

In cooperation with the academic partners an equipment strategy to support robust and efficient re-configurability of production cells will be developed. The main goal is a production concept that can produce a diverse spectrum of parts throughout their whole product lifecycles. A potential solution has to be found outside of the current concept that splits high and low volume production.
In the first phase products have been assessed for decisive similarities and differences in order to determine the possibilities for clustering them in different ways. The current composition of several production cells and the current industrial practice related to reconfiguration issues have been studied. Based on this metrics are defined that are necessary to cluster the products, production technologies and processes and that will be used to configure production cells.
The next step will be to develop tools for cell configuration, re-configuration and performance analysis.
