Lernfabrik Globale Produktion

Lernfabrik Globale Produktion
type: Seminar / Praktikum (S/P)
semester: WS 19/20
lecturer: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Gisela Lanza
sws: 2
lv-no.: 2149612
Notes

The learning factory “Global Production“ serves as a modern teaching environment for the challenges of global production. To make this challenges come alive, students can run a production of electric motors under real production conditions.
The course is divided into e-learning units and presence dates. The e-learning units help to learn essential basics and to immerse themselves in specific topics (e.g. selection of location, supplier selection and planning of production networks). The focus of the
presence appointments is the case-specific application of relevant methods for planning and control of production systems that are suitable for the location. In addition to traditional methods and tools to organize lean production systems (e.g. Kanban and JIT/ JIS,
Line Balancing) the lecture in particular deals with site-specific quality assurance and scalable automation. Essential methods for quality assurance in complex production systems are taught and brought to practical experience by a Six Sigma project. In the area of scalable automation, it is important to find solutions for the adaption of the level of automation of the production system to the local production conditions (e.g. automated workpiece transport, integration of lightweight robots for process linking) and to
implement them physically. At the same time safety concepts should be developed and implemented as enablers for human-robot collaboration.
The course also includes an excursion to the production plant for the manufacturing of electric motors of an industrial partner.

Main focus of the lecture:

  • site selection
  • site-specific factory planning
  • site-specific quality assurance
  • scalable automation
  • supplier selection

 

Learning Outcomes:

The students are able to …

  • evaluate and select alternative locations using appropriate methods.
  • use methods and tools of lean management to plan and manage production systems that are suitable for the location.
  • use the Six Sigma method and apply goal-oriented process management.
  • select an appropriate level of automation of the production units based on quantitative variables.
  • make use of well-established methods for the evaluation and selection of suppliers.
  • apply methods for planning a global production network depending on company-specific circumstances to sketch a suitable network and classify and evaluating it according to specific criteria.
  • apply the learned methods and approaches with regard to problem solving in a global production environment and able to reflect their effectiveness.

Annotation

For organisational reasons, the number of participants for the course is limited to 20. As a result, a selection process will take place. Applications must be submitted via the wbk homepage (http://www.wbk.kit.edu/studium-und-lehre.php).

Due to the limited number of participants, advance registration is required.

Students should have previous knowledge in at least one of the following areas:

  • Integrated Production Planning
  • Global Production and Logistics
  • Quality Management
