2015 (English)In: Simulation in Production and Logistics / [ed] Prof.Dr.-Ing. Markus Rabe & Prof.Dr.-Ing.Uwe Clausen, Stuttgart: Fraunhofer IRB Verlag, 2015, 437-446 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper introduces a Streamlined Modelling and Decision Support (StreaMod) approach in which input data management, simulation model generation/update and simulation-based optimisation are synergistically integrated into a largely automated process. The aim of this automated process is to support decision making related to the optimal maintenance resources allocation that could improve the performance of production/logistics systems. The basic novelty of the StreaMod optimisation methodology lies on the formulation of an optimal maintenance allocation problem of a production/logistic system into a bi-objective optimisation problem, so that optimal resources/changes to improve the throughput of the system can be sought in a single optimisation run. The successful application of this methodology in a real-world automotive factory will also be addressed in this paper.
