Factory Structure Planning

Seminar ‘ value-stream engineering’ the Fraunhofer Academy in October for manufacturing companies is the current method a proven tool, to make production processes flexibly and efficiently. However, previous approaches have vulnerabilities so, for example, when it comes to versatile single – or low-volume production. “The Fraunhofer Institute for industrial engineering IAO has optimised the power method and to the value-stream engineering” developed. Under the umbrella of the Fraunhofer Academy the Fraunhofer IAO of the 23.-offers 26 October a four-day seminar in Stuttgart, in the responsible production and logistics can get to know the method and test on its own corporate structure. The participants are enables, to develop an individual concept to improve the profitability of your company.

An optimal value-stream-oriented production for types – and varied products should reach with high delivery reliability through inventory reduction a low capital commitment. This short lead times with minimal need to Set-up times as well as ensure high resource utilization for short-term and volatile customer schedules. To solve this challenge, the Fraunhofer Institute has developed the method of value-stream engineering for industrial engineering IAO. With this method, companies can make their production system efficiently and at the same time individually. The approach helps to optimise all production processes from order to delivery and to concatenate. So improved not only the process organization, but also the delivery to the customer. The four-day seminar of value-stream engineering offers the opportunity to learn the methods and practices of value-stream engineering in a reference company and to apply to the company.

Since the syllabus largely developed independently, the seminar participants can deepen their understanding of the value-stream engineering, discuss and profitably exploit the potential of the method”, Dr. Roman explains gods, Director of the Fraunhofer Academy. the concept of the event. The solutions are in the reference company this group itself developed, designed and implemented, then tested in a simulation and rated metrics such as delivery, lead times, inventories, and costs and income. In the second part of the seminar, the knowledge acquired in a case study on the company or a company are applied and solidified.

Latest findings of science and research directly incorporated into the syllabus. This guarantees a unique knowledge transfer from Fraunhofer research in the company. The in-service courses, certificate courses and seminars of the Fraunhofer Academy is aimed at experts and executives. They are based on the research activities of the Fraunhofer Institute in cooperation with selected and renowned Partner universities and partner institutions. Further information under Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft-the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft operates more than 80 research institutions, of which 60 institutions in Germany. More than 20,000 employees and staff, predominantly with natural or engineering and scientific education, edit the annual research budget of 1.8 billion euros.
