Information Management for Factory Planning and Design
KTH, School of Industrial Engineering and Management (ITM), Production Engineering. (Computer Systems for Design and Manufacturing)
2012 (English)Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
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.

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.

Abstract [en]

This paper is dedicated to the factory development where management of established knowledge and company practiceis a big challenge because its process involves many competence domains such as process planning, productioninvestment and building construction, etc. This article presents an in-house developed production pilot for a better cooperationand support in factory development. Details about methodologies and the thinking behind the pilot will bepresented in the paper. The pilot aims to ease the sharing and reuse of knowledge and experiences, create a valueaddingworking process, and ease the collaboration and semantic interpretation between disciplines within factorydevelopment.

2011 (English)In: Proceedings of the 21st CIRP Design Conference, 2011, 199-206 p.Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In the current factory layout design domain, the factory layout is usually a geometric representation. Thedomain suffers from many problems such as inadequate types of geometrical information, difficulties incombining different file formats and comprehensive information management. This paper describes theproblems, needs and visions in the domain. The authors have identified several existing standards that aresuitable as a foundation for information related to factory layout design, for a more integrated informationmanagement and for efficiently creating and analysing factory solutions. A detailed description anddiscussion about diverse standards are included in the paper.

2011 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Factory design is a complex industrial process that involves different disciplines and hasraised many challenges, e.g., how to form a better integration of a factory layout modeland other important information to effectively shorten the project time in creating aproductive and profitable factory. This paper solves the issues posed by these challenges,by proposing a holistic information communication approach based on domain specificmodels. The use of this approach can lead to a better communication between disciplines,a clearer semantic interpretation and a better interoperability between different softwareapplications.
