COMPLEX - Support for Operation and Man-Hour Planning in Complex Production

This project will develop generic models and methods to support strategies, planning, managing, and optimizing of complex production. The added complexity is studied and a definition of complexity is developed, along with methods to manage complexity, competence, and information requirements. Results will contribute to modelling and IT-support tools for calculation of the total requirement of indirect and direct man-hours in production.
