Machine Diagnosis Techniques by Simplified Calculation Method
Takeyasu, Kazuhiro ; Amemiya, Takashi ; Iino, Katsuhiro ; Masuda, Shiro ;
Industrial Engineering and Management Systems, volume 2, issue 1, 2003, Pages 1~8
Among many dimensional or dimensionless amplitude parameters, kurtosis and ID Factor are said to be sensitive good parameters for machine diagnosis. In this paper, a simplified calculation method for both parameters is introduced when impact vibration arise in the observed data. Compared with the past papers' results, this new method shows a good result which fit well. This calculation method is simple enough to be executed even on a pocketsize calculator and is very practical at the factory of maintenance field. This can be installed in microcomputer chips and utilized as a tool for early stage detection of the failure.

In a wafer fabrication factory, the completion time of an order is affected by many factors related to the specifics of the order and the status of the system, so is difficult to predict precisely. The level of influence of each factor on the order completion time may also depend on the production system characteristics, such as the rules for releasing and dispatching. This paper presents a method to identify those factors that significantly impact upon the order completion time under various combinations of scheduling rules. Computer simulations and statistical analyses were used to develop effective due date assignment models for improving the due date related performances. The first step of this research was to select the releasing and dispatching rules from those that were cited so frequently in related wafer fabrication factory researches. Simulation and statistical analyses were combined to identify the critical factors for predicting order completion time under various combinations of scheduling rules. In each combination of scheduling rules, two efficient due date assignment models were established by using the regression method for accurately predicting the order due date. Two due date assignment models, called the significant factor prediction model (SFM) and the key factor prediction model (KFM), are proposed to empirically compare the due date assignment rules widely used in practice. The simulation results indicate that SFM and KFM are superior to the other due date assignment rules. The releasing rule, dispatching rule and due date assignment rule have significant impacts on the due date related performances, with larger improvements coming from due date assignment and dispatching rules than from releasing rules.
A Pickup and Delivery Problem Based on AVL and GIS
Hwang, Heung-Suk ;
Industrial Engineering and Management Systems, volume 2, issue 1, 2003, Pages 28~34
The fundamental design issues that arise in the pickup and delivery system planning are optimizing the system with minimum cost and maximum throughput and service level. This study is concerned with the development of pickup and delivery system with customer responsive service level, DCM(Demand Chain Management). The distribution process and service map are consisted of manufacturing, warehousing, and pickup and delivery. First we formulated the vehicle pickup and delivery problem using GIS-VRP method so as to satisfy the customer service requests. Second, we developed a GUI-type computer program using AVL, automated vehicle location system. The computational results show that the proposed method is very effective on a set of test problems.
Disassembly and Classification for Recovery of EOL Products

Recovery of end-of-life (EOL) products is an environmentally and economically sound way to achieve many of the goals of sustainable development. Many product recovery systems are dependent upon destructive disassembly such as shredding, which undesirably causes a large volume of shredder dust and makes parts reuse impossible. Although non-destructive disassembly has been considered as an alternative for solving the problems, the classification of disassembled items has not been sufficiently investigated. In this paper, we propose a model that mathematically optimizes the disassembly and classification of EOL products. Based on the AND/OR graph that illustrates all possible disassembly sequences of a given product, we identify the physical properties that are considered as constraints in the model. As a result of the solution procedure, the recovery problem can be transformed into a mixed integer linear programming (MILP) model. We show an example that illustrates the concept of our model.
ERP-Enterprise Resource Planning: System Selection Process and Implementation Assessment
Han, Sung-Wook ;
Industrial Engineering and Management Systems, volume 2, issue 1, 2003, Pages 45~54
Enterprise Resource Planning(ERP) systems offer pervasive business functionality the applications encompass virtually all aspects of the business. Understanding and managing this pervasiveness will result in a successful and productive business application platform. Because of this pervasiveness, implementations have ranged from great successes to complete failures. This article has two distinctive parts. The first proposes and discusses a systematic process based on consulting experiences of LG CNS (leading information system company in Korea) for ERP selection. Also, the second provides the key factors that are critical to the successful implementation of ERP. The second part reports the results of a study carried out to assess a number of different ERP implementations in different organizations. A case study method of investigation was used, and the experiences of five Korean manufacturing companies were documented. The critical factors in the adoption of ERP are identified as: learning from the experiences of others, appointment of a process innovator, establishment of committees and project teams, training and technical support for the users, and appropriate changes to the organizational structure and managerial responsibilities.
Analysis of Information Behavior in Determination of Product Specifications Based on a Conjoint Measurement Approach and a Fusion Model
Ishii, Kazuyoshi ; Ichimura, Takaya ; Hiraki, Shusaku ;
Industrial Engineering and Management Systems, volume 2, issue 1, 2003, Pages 55~62
This paper deals with the difficulties involved in analyzing and designing a management system to reduce the risks and improve the productivity of new product development. In this paper, a method is described to analyze user information and determine product specifications based on a stimulus-response model, the conjoint measurement of users needs, and product characteristics deployment. The proposed method can analyze the effect of a partial price on the contribution ratio based on the order of preference of product profiles through a smaller number of product profiles. The strengths and weaknesses of this method are examined as the method is applied to the case study of a mobile computer intended for personal use.
A Case Study of Bus-Gearboxes Maintenance using Arithmetic Processes
Francis, LeungKit-Nam ; Lai, Kin-Keung ;
Industrial Engineering and Management Systems, volume 2, issue 1, 2003, Pages 63~70
In this study, we employed an arithmetic process (AP) approach to resolve gearbox maintenance problems. The approach is realistic and direct in modelling the characteristics of a deteriorating system such as a gearbox since a decreasing AP can model a gearbox's successive operating times and an increasing AP can model the corresponding consecutive repair times. First of all, two test statistics were used to check whether the process is arithmetic or not. Next, model parameters of the AP were estimated using the simple linear regression method. Finally, the optimal replacement policy based on minimising the long-run average cost per day was determined for each type of gearbox.
