Abstract:This master research assignment is performed at VDL ETG Almelo, which is a supplier with the possibility to design, produce, assemble and check systems. Project Flexarm concerns the assembly of 7 subsystems. Currently, this project is in transition form the design phase to volume production. In order to achieve a well-controlled volume production, a standardized assembly process is needed. This thesis focusses on designing such standardized assembly process. The scope includes development of a layout, workforce planning and employee management. A simulation study is performed with Siemens Tecnomatix Plant Simulation to evaluate multiple employee settings, plannings strategies and a new developed layout.
