  • mobile factory network mfn network of flexible and Agile Manufacturing Systems in the construction industry
    Applied Mechanics and Materials, 2015
    Co-Authors: Erwin Rauch, Dominik T. Matt, Patrick Dallasega

    Abstract:

    The concept of the “On-site Factory” consists in the temporary use of fully functioning mobile mini-factories or production cells at the site of consumption. Mobile Factories are well suitable for situations in the construction industry with long distances and therefore high logistics costs. The advantage of this concept is its economic efficiency combined with a maximum of flexibility and a just-in-time supply. By a high degree of reconfigurability and scalability of the On-site Factory, it can be adapted to its individual mission and the quantity demand at the construction site. This research discusses the need for new and innovative JIT solutions for construction industry and addresses the specific case of networks of mobile on-site factories. The creation of a Mobile Factory Network (MFN) shows an interesting new and innovative business model for decentralized Manufacturing on-site. The research shows a possible form of network structure and organization as well as its advantages and potential for the construction sector.

  • enhanced survivability a framework of self healing mechanisms installation using axiomatic design in Agile Manufacturing Systems
    , 2012
    Co-Authors: Dominik T. Matt

    Abstract:

    This paper presents a theoretic framework based on Axiomatic Design principles for the installation of self-healing strategies and mechanisms in order to control the effects of the time-dependent combinatorial complexity caused by the uncertainty of maintaining the fulfilment of once defined functional requirements for a production system. With the help of the scenario-technique, time-dependent influence is shown and self-healing strategies are developed, using functional periodicity as a trigger point for their release. A first application of the so developed theoretic framework at a medium-sized manufacturer of consumer durables which shows very promising results will be discussed.

  • A network approach to operate Agile Manufacturing Systems
    International Journal of Production Economics, 2001
    Co-Authors: Jean-marc Frayret, Sophie D'amours, Benoit Montreuil, Louis Cloutier

    Abstract:

    Abstract This paper presents and illustrates a strategic framework for designing and operating Agile networked Manufacturing Systems. This framework allows to collaboratively plan, control and manage day-to-day operations and contingencies in a dynamic environment. The first section summarizes the NetMan organizational and collaboration strategy. It consists of a dynamic business method to organize and operate Manufacturing activities through the configuration, activation and operation of a distributed network of inter-dependent and responsible Manufacturing centers. Next, the concepts underlying this strategic framework as well as the technical implications of such an approach, are illustrated, using a detailed case study inspired by a motorcoach industrial partner.
