Abstract [en]

The increasing interest in and importance of shortening product development times have underlined the necessity of working with overlapping activities in product development projects (PDPs), i.e. concurrent engineering. In the literature it has been argued that materials supply system (MSS) design should form one dimension of concurrent engineering and be coordinated with product and production systems design. However, the research on the integration of MSS design into PDPs is fragmented.

The research presented in this paper aims at developing a design process for MSSs in order to achieve systematic MSS design as well as its integration at an early stage of PDPs, thus allowing the MSS to be designed in parallel with the product and the rest of the production system. The research is based on literature studies as well as on two single qualitative case studies conducted at two companies within the automotive industry; an end producer and a first tier supplier.

An MSS design process has been developed, which is structured in accordance with the following phases: Planning, Concept development, System-level design, and Detail design. The MSS is modelled with materials flows as sub systems and six design areas as components. The six design areas are materials feeding, storage, transportation, handling, packaging, and manufacturing planning and control.
