Filter production line configuration
Currently, AMS operates the filter lines at two locations (Europe and Asia). Strategically one location is preferred (Asia, for customer proximity and supply chain optimization). A transfer program is planned to qualify and release products and transfer machines. However, it is not feasible to transfer all products and thus a reduced filter production line should remain. The objective of this assignment is to determine the minimal requirements for the efficient operation of the production line.
In order to determine the minimum requirements for an effective filter production line, the demand and machines should be analyzed and modelled. This includes product mix, what-if scenarios, resources, staffing, and system behaviour.
The main objective is to identify the optimal filter line configuration given certain demand scenarios.
