Omschrijving Many industrial companies require complex ‘assets’ or ‘capital goods’ in their primary process. Examples can be found in a wide range of industries and include real estate, facilities and infrastructure, manufacturing and production plants and flexible manufacturing systems. The design, proper use, and maintenance of such assets are usually critical for the performance of the company. Complex production assets typically have a long life-span, whereby the total cost of ownership (including e.g. maintenance and renovation costs) may far exceed the initial investment. This course consists of plenary lectures and tutorials related to assignments, during which the stages of the asset-life cycle will be discussed. Investment and design decisions related to manufacturing automation will be discussed. In addition, the following topics will receive attention: quantitative methods in the front-end, the organisation of operations and maintenance, reliability engineering in maintenance and operations, and condition monitoring.
Students are asked to exercise with and reflect on these topics by conducting assignments, and do an intermediate exam. The assignments are all preceded by a tutorial/Q&A session.
