【Topic】Seru Production: A Potential Production System for Industry 4.0
【Time】Friday, Jan. 4, 2019, 10:00
【Venue】Room 453, Weilun Building, Tsinghua SEM
【Organizer】Department of Management Science and Engineering
【Abstract】 This talk discusses the potential applications of seru and lean production principles for Industry 4.0. The remarkable capabilities of responsiveness, reconfigurability, and sustainability of seru production are introduced. We present production systems with a focus on the relationships between product supply and customer demand in the context of Industry 2.0–4.0. One driver of production evolution is changes in customer demand over time, which is categorised into several dimensions. Major production systems – flow line, Toyota production system (TPS), job shop, cell, flexible manufacturing system and seru – have been developed and applied to supplies to match different demand dimensions over time. Comparisons between seru with TPS and cell are given. The possibilities of a future smart factory equipped with internet of things (IoT) are discussed. The demand dimensions of Industry 4.0, the product architecture change in the automobile industry (e.g., from integral to modular), and the impact of 3D printing are elaborated. The research opportunities of seru production in the context of Industry 4.0 are presented.
