Project example - Milling department reorganization by manufacturing concept, machine selection and recommendations for automation
The target of this project was themilling department reorganization by manufacturing concept, machine selection and recommendations for automation.
For this purpose the following steps were performed:
- Analysis of product spectrum and subsequent data consolidation as well as derivation of requirements
- Derivation of requirements for milling machines, clamping systems, CAx process chain and automation
- Development of manufacturing concepts and final concept selection by value benefit analysis and financial analysis
- Evaluation of an efficient automation level and development of an automation concept
The results of this project were at the one handthe selection of milling machines considering current part variety and on the other hand the reduction of required milling machines by 25%.
