Today’s Agenda • Information on syllabus • Office hours • Text • Grading • Exams & Homework • Class format • Introductory lecture • Start course material
Office Hours • By appointment. • Office 238 • E-mail No HW/technical questions
Prerequisites • EIND mfg1, or equivalent • EIND prod. mgmt– Helpful but not critical. If specific material is needed, it will be covered for course purposes.
Course Information • Course homepage : Syllabus • Handouts • This introductory presentation • Some lecture material • Information sheet • Homework assignments • Project information • Check the page for course information and announcements
Textbook • Tompkins et al., (2003). Facilities Planning 3rd Edition, John Wiley and Sons Inc. • Good points • Very widely used text • Good combination of practical/theoretical methods • Encyclopedic • A good reference for practicing engineers • Bad points • Maybe too much detail for a first course • Sometimes too much talk and no concrete results • Organization? • We’ll move around the text according to the course plan
Other References • Hopp, W.J., Spearman, M.L., (2001). Factory Physics 2nd Edition, Irwin McGraw-Hill Inc. • Mainly used in the first portion of the course • Library has a copy • Lectures should be sufficient coverage
Grading – Allocation • Class participation based on: • Participation in class – answering questions • In-class exercises • Random attendance taken
Classroom Rules • Turn off cell phones and other communication devices • No completing homework or other assignments • Use common sense and be considerate of others • Notify instructor when absent from class as soon as possible • Before or after the fact • Justifiable reason
Exams & Homework • Homework • Around 6-7 homework assignments will be given. • Group study is encouraged but splitting up assignments is not. • A random selection of problems will be graded. • Exams • Closed book and closed notes exams • Based on homework, lecture material, text reading.
Project • Team project • Case study • – Design Project/Competition
Lecture Format • The first part of class will be devoted to questions. • Unreasonably long questions will be handled one on one. • If I don’t know the answer, I’ll get it for the class by the next lecture. • Lecture • Ask questions • End of Class – Will try to leave time for questions
Lecture Format • Most material will be delivered • Take good notes. • Slow me down if I’m moving too fast or if I am too sloppy. • There will be periodic in-class problem solving sessions.
Information Sheet • Due on ???() • Turn the paper sheet in at class. • Counts towards class participation. • It helps me, • Get your names right.
IE 368 Introduction
Text Coverage - Today • Chapter 1
Course Catalog Description • Design and analysis of industrial facilities including just-in-time systems, queuing, material handling systems, material flow analysis, line balancing, systematic layout planning, design of warehouse facilities, and facilities location. • HW. 5S as related to line balancing
Catalog Description Facilities Planning and Operations • Facilities Planning and Operations – Using organizations tangible fixed assets to best support the organization’s objective. • This course will focus on facilities planning. • Emphasis on flow design, layout. • Some coverage of storage and materials handling.
Facilities Planning Viewpoints • Civil engineering • Electrical/Mechanical engineering • Architectural • Construction management/Contractor • Real estate • Urban planning • Industrial engineering • HW—what is the role of each in facility planning?
IE Viewpoint of Facilities Planning • IEs are focusing on requirements, resource allocation, and efficient use of resources. • Facilities are the integration of many lower level systems • Space requirements with respect to flow and operations control • Personnel requirements • Equipment requirements • System design/layout with respect to flow and operations control • The use of information systems and technology to increase effectiveness • Movement within a facility • Movement between facilities – Location • …
From an IE Viewpoint • Why are the components of this facility located as drawn? • Why are they arranged as drawn? • Why are there so many duplicated items? • Why is the facility so large or small? • Why are there enclosed rooms and open areas? • How many people will be working in the facility? • Does this design meet requirements? • etc.
IE Approaches • IEs develop models to understand, design, and validate systems • Procedures (e.g., SLP) • Analytical models – (e.g., machine fraction equations, queuing models) • Analytical layout models/software • Computer simulations
Goals of this Course • Students successfully completing this course should be able to:
All the facilities in the supply chain should have the following characteristics: • Flexibility • Modularity • Upgradability • Adaptability • Selective Operability • Hw. define each of the above hand written
