Abstract 113 master students of multiple engineering study backgrounds were challenged to develop solutions for the Fraunhofer Project Center at the University of Twente (FPC@UT). In 20 groups the students had to develop a synthetic environment to monitor, manage and control a pilot plant or virtual factory. The assignment was carried out in the context of the study Industrial Design Engineering, in the course ‘Virtual Reality’. During the course the students had to provide a strategic, yet conc...

Abstract Developing or adjusting production environments requires joint decision-making by stakeholders from many disciplines at different levels of aggregation, because of the significant, unpredictable, and risky investments involved. Especially, the relations between the design of the product (portfolio) and the environments in which they are produced are intricate. Pilot production environments offer a platform to develop, test, improve, and upscale (parts of) a production environment. In th...

Abstract Typically, development of changeability and reconfigurability in manufacturing are greenfield approaches. New platforms, products and manufacturing systems are developed with new features, capability or technology. While companies can achieve the desired level and type of changeability with greenfield approaches, development of new platforms and systems is a costly affair if existing systems and platforms in the company is not considered. This study outlines an approach for systematic b...

Abstract Selective laser melting (SLM), as a rapidly growing additive manufacturing technology, is used to produce complex components with integrated functionalities. Nevertheless, limited part properties like surface roughness or geometrical accuracy impede their direct use right after printing. Therefore, functional surfaces have to be post-processed (e.g. milling, grinding, polishing), which significantly raises the product costs. To increase the process efficiency, direct post-processing wit...

Abstract This study aims to evaluate the robustness of a low volume mixed model production line under different operating conditions. A real production line that builds six different aircraft heat exchangers is modelled, simulated and analysed under different operating conditions. A number of experiments are conducted in order to assess the effect of dispatching rules and disturbances related to reworks, and processing time variance on tardiness robustness. A penalty function to quantitatively a...

Abstract Paying a premium in a cloud manufacturing free market environment will benefit a customer during steady state scenarios, however during disruption this benefit diminishes to zero; dependent on the degree of disruption. These customers will recover quicker from disruptions, but the returns are small compared to the relative increase in cost. A cloud manufacturing scenario without contracts or preferential supply acts as a free market, this significantly increases supply chain risk. The p...

Abstract An emergent vision for industrial sustainability is moving beyond the circular economy into the possibility of "immortal" products. This requires development of methods to enable the reliable and scalable production of novel products and systems that possess the inherent ability to sense and repair damage enabling in service healing and immortality. In the literature, this is mostly described by the self-healing property of the materials (polymers, metals, composites, ceramics and bio a...
