Simulation and statistical analysis to improve Ferruform’s future production line
2010 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

FerruForm is a Swedish company that manufactures axles for Scania. FerruForm is developing a new operation line from existing systems to improve the production of axles. Current operations have axles being produced at different locations within the factory and the company wants to relocate current machinery and introduce more equipment to better utilize space and increase flow through the system. FerruForm has developed a layout which shows the proposed changes to the system and would like to simulate the process. By simulating the process, the company tries to understand in a better way how to maintain the new system, to assigns correct buffer requirements for each operation and chose the entrance order in the system. Through the software, we can simulate the behavior of the production plant with the different values of the variables that we are studying. According with the industrial management, it have been decided three variables to study, which can modify the performance of the production line but has not been studied deeply enough. Once we have the results of these simulations, we are going to discuss these results with statistical tools. In order to have substantial conclusions, several experiments have been designed so the results of these experiments can be compared and studied with the maximum rigor. In the report that follows, the reader is going to find the project split into two parts:: Simulation and result study.
