2018 - Assembly optimization through the use of eye-tracking systems (closed)

The goal is to significantly optimize an assembly workplace with the aid of software for eyetracking. For this purpose, the eye movements of the operator are analyzed using the software in the initial state. In various optimization steps, the effect of reducing the eye movements is examined in order to draw conclusions about an efficiency increase, which should also be measured in the form of performance data.

2018 - Simulation of real time capability in production planning (closed)

The objective of this project is to study the effects of a nearly real-time capable production planning in Engineer-to-Order environment of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). For this reason a simulation in FlexSim should be developed by the students to simulate the effects using a traditional push-oriented and a nearly real-time pull oriented production planning approach in an industrial case.

2018 - An eye tracking supported video analysis for assembly optimization at BARBIERI electronic snc (closed)

The aim of the study is to create and evaluate a video analysis supported by eye tracking glasses for the assembly of a product. Within the project the difference between a traditional video analysis and an analysis with biometric data shall be analyzed and conclusions about the suitability of such systems in process analysis and optimization shall be defined.

2018 - Digitization of an assembly information system in special machine construction (closed)

The project aims at improving the mutual communication between design, production and service in the value chain of Progress Maschinen & Automation. The students should develop a concept for an assembly information system in order to collect and visualize the right information. This requires a weak point analysis, an actual/target analysis, a target concept and a subsequent implementation plan.

2018 - Integration of a transfer system for hybrid assembly in the Smart Mini Factory Laboratory (closed)

The objective of this project is the integration of a transfer system into the Smart Mini Factory. The transfer system is intended to create a layout that is as universal as possible and allows maximum flexibility in the configuration of the line. This requires the investigation of the working areas of robot, transfer system and human in order to coordinate them with each other. In addition, the SCARA station is to be integrated into the project, if possible without housing. Finally, the planned transfer system will be displayed in a simulator and an automated demo will be created.

2019 - Human Factor and Ergonomics Study of an Assembly Process (closed)

The project aims to investigate the influence of human factors and ergonomics in assembly using simulation software (Tecnomatix Jack). The student first learns the simulation software and then creates a simulation model for an ergonomics analysis of an assembly. The student research project supports an ongoing research project with an industrial partner.

2020 - Enhancing the Performance of Value Stream Mapping Using FlexSim Simulation Software (closed)

Das Projekt zielt darauf ab, Value Stream Mapping als Instrument für die Schlanke Produktion mit Simulationssystemen zu verknüpfen. Der Student hat am Fallbeispiel einer Pneumatikzylindermontage im Smart Mini Factory Labor eine Value Stream Map in Visio sowie ein Simulationsmodell in FlexSim erstellt. Durch Programmierung einer Schnittstelle können verschiedene Szenarien in der Simulation simuliert und die Ergebnisse direkt in der Value Stream Map dargestellt werden.

2021 - Development of a Morphological Box to Describe Worker Assistance Systems in Production (closed)

This study project focuses on the complex selection process of worker assistance systems. Due to rising complexity of products and processes in the manufacturing sector, together with changing work environments, the choice for suitable support systems becomes more difficult.
An extensive literature review resulted in the derivation of a broad variety of influencing parameter which laid the foundation for a uniform developed morphological box. An exemplary implementation demonstrates and proves its advantage compared to other decision-making tools.
