Performance adaptive manufacturing processes

Creutznacher, T.; Lepratti, R.; Lamparter, S.; Heinecke, G.

Energy efficiency is of increasing importance towards sustainable manufacturing in the automotive industry, in particular due to growing environment regulations and rising electricity costs. Approaches within the manufacturing planning phase are insufficient to address dynamic influences during run-time (e.g., electricity tariffs or workload). Additionally, conventional production monitoring and control systems consider the ‘Overall Equipment Effectiveness‘ of manufacturing systems, but do not include related energy efficiency. This paper introduces a novel approach that combines these both aspects and provides more effectiveness based on socalled production variants. The latter are designed during the planning phase and used to adapt manufacturing behavior when facing dynamically changes during run-time. A simulation shows how dynamic adjustments of cycle times lead to a high reduction of energy costs while maintaining high throughputs.
