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.

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 thesis is dedicated to the manufacturing industry for the improvement of information management within the factory planningand design domain, and for more efficient factory planning and design. Currently the manufacturing industry lacks sufficient methods for capturing, structuring, and representing information and knowledge for easy access, exchange, integration and reuse within the domain. Therefore the focus of this thesis is on information and knowledge management within factory planning and design, which involves two subjects; information management and factory planning and design. In this thesis information and knowledge are captured by different models for different purposes, with the viewpoint of the factory planner and designer. A concept model is developed for a unified understanding of terms. An activity model is developed to define the domain scope, information flow and is used as the core of the factory planning and realization pilot, which is also developed. Information models from different information standards have been evaluated for a future common information platform within factory design. Principles about how to apply standards and concept models to the factory design are presented and discussed.
