Project Disruption management in individual and small series assembly of large-scale products (StoMaXXL)

The project

The aim of the research project is to develop an innovative disruption management system for site assembly, in particular for individual and small batch assembly of large-scale products.

As a basis for the innovative disruption management, a database will be created that contains information on frequently occurring disruptions. A software demonstrator will then be developed to support companies in eliminating occurring disruptionsquickly and accurately.

If an employee enters a new disruptioninto the system, the software demonstrator identifies related disruptionsusing a multi-stage similarity search and automatically suggests suitable measures to rectify the fault.

Your tasks

Your responsibilities will include a variety of exciting items within the project. These include:

  • Research on topics related to single and small batch assembly.
  • Research on possible assembly disruptions as well as their characterization possibilities
