Project example – Increase of standardization degree in special machine  construction using the example  of chassis for appliances

Checking standardization options and implementing them for a growth of the degree of standardization required the following steps:

  • Evaluation of the current status quo in regard to the degree of standardization for special machine construction
  • Identification of standardization potentials based on existing similarities and requirements
  • Development of approaches for standardization based on the prototype group "chassis"
  • Definition of measures and development of a target process/ implementation plan
  • Evaluation of efficient production batch sizes through a cost estimation

The result of this project was a check and conduction of standardization options based on a prototype group and the definition of a module roadmap including the target process for further standardization of products.
