A330 Transit Meeting – 6-month internship at Airbus
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Building planes is based on a lot of different manufacturing processes. New challenges and higher production rates lead to the necessity of optimizing those processes. This Master Thesis focuses on one of them: the plane transit process, when the plane moves from a building station to another. Today, this manufacturing step takes a lot of time and deteriorates the production rhythm. This gate has a direct impact on the provider and the receiver stations and it was essential to find a way of improving it.
This document presents the A330 Final Assembly Line (FAL), the plane transit process, the Business Improvement Project (BIP) method at Airbus and explains the created solutions and the related results.
