Information management for the factory planning process
KTH, School of Industrial Engineering and Management (ITM), Production Engineering.
2009 (English)Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This thesis is based on the present needs for the factory planning support, of which the most important ones are:

• A structured reuse of knowledge and support for industries. Because today the industry handbook in factory planning is not satisfying enough to support this complex process.

• Better methods to represent and communicate data between software within the factory layout area for easier data communication and thereby information access, exchange and reuse.

To support the factory planning, based on the mentioned needs, a mapping of the present factory planning process is made based on knowledge from industry and academy. Since the factory planning process is a huge and complex process that no one can handle by themself, a puzzle work is performed. Based on gathered information and knowledge an activity model is developed, to structure the data and information. The model gives a better overview on the actual course of events and in this way also “captures” the most important information to be represented for data exchange among different software applications and different people.

In this thesis the most important information in factory layout is gathered and structured in a concept model for factory layout. Since the concepts depend on the context in which they are used, it is extremely important to present every concept in its relationship with other related concepts within the area.  A general theory and state-of-the-art definitions in the area is presented and discussed for a factory planning information management system. An evaluation and discussion is made for the state-of-the-art software in the area of concern.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a concept model for factory layout design, based on knowledge gathered from industry and academy in the area of manufacturing system development. The concept model is developed as one way to reach a more neutral and open information model for easier use of the information in applications. The concept model also gives a better opportunity to support the factory planning and layout development activities.

2009 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This paper presents a discussion and review of the digital factory and digital manufacturing, based on various papers and the authors’ understanding and experience. The aim is to clarify different perspectives and concepts, to make them more transparent and consistent. This work is necessary due to the large variations in scope and definition of these two concepts. The different views, and understandings of, the digital factory concept can vary due to the different perceptions, depending on background, knowledge etc, which may lead to the developments of digital factory and digital manufacturing being diffuse from different research perspectives.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents an evaluation and discussion of the digital factory tools, based on various software applications. The aim is to map the software tools within the digital factory and evaluate them with regard to the digital factory theory. This work aims to compare research theory with the software tools that are available on the market and how they differ. It is important to know how the commercial state-of-the-art software tools differ from the research theory of the digital factory, for further research development. A test case has been carried out to realize a mini digital factory based on commercial software.
