Title: Models for Improvement Management and Operational Performance
Issue Date: 2017-02-16
Description: Achieving high levels of performance in the manufacturing environment requires an increase in speed, quality and reliability of existing technologies. This is inherently related with the need to develop adequate process monitoring and modelling/simulation approaches, along with innovative optimization and maintenance strategies. The purpose of this dissertation is to provide a framework that can be used as a tool by decision makers when evaluating and controlling the performance of a system. To achieve this, a structured conceptual model should be developed, which should not be tied to any particular model. The idea with this framework is to assess information obtained during production and use it to generate relevant KPIs for monitoring and evaluating the system?s performance. This information should then be fed into a DSS that can provide suggestions or even actively influence simulation parameters to apply the identified improvement measures. Finally, the proposed framework is to be applied in a case-study to evaluate its relevance in the improvement of manufacturing operations in a real-world context.
