Omschrijving To survive in the ever increasing global competition, production organizations need to carefully attune their production system to their environment. We pay attention to production system design with an emphasis on Continuous Improvement and Lean Production. The suitability of a production structure is assessed on characteristics of the market (product mix, volume) and characteristics of capacity (humans, machines, tools). Sample topics are Statistical Process Control, Line Balancing, Cellular Manufacturing, and Pull Production. Design methods and techniques will be practiced through assignments and practicals.
