Levels of Automation in the wood product industry: A case study
2016 (English)In: Proceedings of the 23rd EurOMA Conference, 2016Conference paper (Refereed)
The paper investigates the effect of the changeover in levels of automation (LoA) on the material utilization and the production flexibility in processing line systems, in the wood product industry. Further, the paper examines the applicability of the DYNAMO methodology in the chosen context. A case study was conducted where two processing line systems were analysed and compared in terms of LoA and performance. The results imply that consistency in quality and the ability to handle product complexity are affected by the changeover in LoA.
