A web-based electronic data interchange as supplier and assembly interface

Rika Yunitarini, Pratikto Pratikto, Purnomo Budi Santoso & Sugiono Santoso
In the assembly industry, almost all components are outsourced or transferred to other parties, in order to meet the need for supply. This is referred as outsourcing of production. The outsourcing of assembly product components is based on a relationship model between the contractor and the industry. However, there is no relationship or communication pattern between the contractor or supplier and the assembler. Hence, in order to accelerate line production and overcome problems with assembly...

Development and application of a decision making tool for fault diagnosis of turbocompressor basedon Bayesian network and fault tree

Abdelaziz Lakehal, Mourad Nahal & Riad Harouz
Fault Tree is one of the traditional and conventional approaches used in fault diagnosis. By identifying combinations of faults in a logical framework it’s possible to define the structure of the fault tree. The same go with Bayesian networks, but the difference of these probabilistic tools is in their ability to reasoning under uncertainty. Some typical constraints to the fault diagnosis have been eliminated by the conversion to a Bayesian network. This paper shows that...

Demand driven material requirements planning. Some methodical and practical comments

Miriam Pekarcıkova, Peter Trebuna, Marek Kliment & Jozef Trojan
Industry 4.0 will affect the complexity of supply chain networks. It will be necessary to adapt more and more to the customer and respond within a time interval that is willing to accept the product waiting. From these considerations, there is a need for a different way of managing the supply chain. The traditional concept of supply chain as a linear system, which allows optimizing individual subsystems, thus obtaining an optimized supply chain, is not...
