RELATIONS BETWEEN PARAMETERS/PERFORMERS AND LEVELS OF AUTOMATION
Paper i proceeding, 2007

Abstract: Manufacturing companies struggles with the fact that costumers are becoming more and more aggressive in demanding new products and services within a short period of time. A result of this is that companies have to find the most effective manufacturing for their products. This means finding new tactics to decrease the time- and costparameters in a system i.e. cycle-time, ramp-up time, investments etc. It is a challenge to find the best solution for this when it comes to flexibility, robustness and efficiency. This paper presents some of the parameters that exist in a manufacturing system and the relationship between them. This is done to be able to identify the parameters that is the most important when it comes to simulate and visualise different Levels of Automation (LoA).
