Leerdoelen Upon completion of the course the student is able to:
1. describe relevant issues, innovations and trends in facility design and facility planning
2. describe and design product flow paths in a facility
3. systematically develop designs for (parts of) a facility
4. apply and modify heuristic and optimisation approaches for operational problems in facilities
Omschrijving Facilities are key elements in the creation of products and services in supply chains. Examples include factories, call centres, warehouses and ports. The aim of this course is to learn how to design such facilities from its physical manifestation to its organisation, aiming at objectives such as efficiency, quality, environmental impact, and human factors. We focus on topics like facility layout, material flow design, equipment selection, process planning, job assignment, and worker task composition. Both heuristic and algorithmic solution approaches are treated, as well as qualitative aspects.
