viewpoint is the object, which is the reality in the factory. The
the factory planner – analyses, fragments and models the
object with the
sensory perception and by the experience of rational perception, with
objective to reflect/control the object. A model is developed using
the computer. It serves as a aid for realisation and direct control of
object in the form of operative control station.
and Logistics are investigated, developed and taught as fundamental
for the modelling and control of manufacturing plants. The new
from the factory development help to begin a model for factory
logistic algorithms. Examples of logistic procedures are the
tools in flexible production systems, intelligent control of transport
without a driver, production control procedure such as Kanban and
all the derived methods and tools are put into practise. They are
the required services. The main viewpoint is the integration of the
knowledge. In a factory model, all the existing data models from the
process of the product development and factory development flow
The factory model is the
technical software illustration of the product structure, the factory
structure, and all logistic procedures for the production control.
of Technology and Services
Simulator SIMFLEX/2 is the result of research, development and
SIMFLEX/2 was the only interactive graphic simulator that existed in
industry the simulator is used everyday and also developed further (see
is not only a tool for factory development but it is also used as a
system, an operational control station for the control of technical
department has experiences servicing different industries such as
supporting industry, machine tool manufacturer, manufacturers of
and tobacco processing etc.
Lectures and Know-How
contents of the lecture offered by the department is derived from the
works and it is oriented towards the requirements of the profile by the
planners. The students are trained from the first through the last
with sequence of constructive courses. Also, by working for a thesis or
job, the student get the opportunity to work independently.
lectures offer topics on software technology,
simulation methods, development of Simulators, design and logistics
involved in the factory planning for technical plants.
numerous articles, books, industrial seminars & VDI
VDI 3633) has made the know-How publicly available. In this way, the
of Production System works in co-operation with the ASIM simulation
