We want to have our workshop mapped and analyzed. This to be done in the viewpoint of having a flow oriented planning and steering instead of our current functional setup.

We expect a result in form of a proposal of flow oriented (possibly differentiated) workshop, or the reasoning for keeping it the way we currently work.


History and various factors have placed us in a position of a broad and highly diversified workshop. Manufacturing detailed parts and providing capabilities in areas such as, among other, welding, tubing, machining (turning and milling), sheet metal forming & processing, surface treatment & painting. Our advanced and high technological products (ie fighter aircraft and systems) require these capabilities and leads to a difficult and a complex planning and steering situation. We want to assess and evaluate possible alternatives to today’s set up.

Description of the master thesis

This Master Thesis aims at analyzing and proposing a flow oriented setup. This through mapping the flows by compiling and summarizing large data sets from our ERP system. From the mapping then analyze and find similar flows and evaluate if one or several differentiated flow oriented planning and steering setups are possible.
