Research Work

Global trends influence the productions’ framework conditions and the demanded products. Globalization, new production technologies, shorter product lifecycles and resource shortages require the continuous advancement and optimization of production network structures and production processes. Increasing life quality, climate change, mobility changes and demographic changes also require the continuous advancement and optimization of the products and services themselves according to multiple, conflicting objectives.

My workgroup focuses on the support of decision-making processes to optimize production and logistics networks in multi-objective environments. We work on all network layers, namely (1) the network level (network design and control), (2) the site level (process design, production planning and production control) and (3) the product/object level (implementation of new information, communication (I&C) and logistics technologies).

    abstract={Avoiding myopia, suboptimal behavior, caused by the limited information horizon and computation capacity of agents, has been recognized as a major design challenge for the future academic development and industrial adoption of distributed production control systems. In Blunck and Bendul 2016 existing literature from various research streams has been reviewed to classify design decisions that designers can make to avoid myopic decision making. In this contribution, this model will be validated by mapping different paradigms of distributed control onto it. Through this exercise, an initial validation of the proposed classification model can be attained and a starting point for a classification of existing distributed production control approaches based on design features is provided. This will help designers of distributed architectures in production control to better understand their design space, take deliberate steps towards the avoidance of myopic behavior, and identify unexplored areas within the design space.}

Sustainable supply chain management discourse has focused on ecological aspects and neglected social issues, while Base of the Pyramid studies have neglected ecological considerations. This study links the sustainable supply chain management discourse with insights from Base of the Pyramid studies in order to suggest an integrated sustainability perspective. This work adopts a multiple case study design based on secondary data analysis in order to investigate supply chain concepts of 18 successful products and develop sustainable supply chain models in the areas of sourcing, making and delivering. Findings suggest that by employing localized and simplified approaches, companies targeting low-income markets can overcome existing local institutional barriers. We conclude that employing simplified and localized approaches to supply chains and simultaneously integrating local communities in the value creation activities can serve as success factors. Therefore, by linking sustainable supply chain with the Base of the Pyramid strategies discourse, we fill an important research gap in the literature. From a practitioner's perspective, the derived supply chain models serve as best practices for managers of multi-national companies, local entrepreneurs, non-governmental organizations and political institutions designing, operating and regulating supply chains for low-income markets."

    abstract = "Sustainable innovations are inventions providing an essential progress concerning social, economic and ecological concerns. The emergence of Base of the Pyramid markets and the growing importance of the developing economies as new sources of frugal innovations has attracted the interest of scholars and practitioners. Frugal innovation is an inclusive approach to innovation that maximizes value for customers, shareholders, and society - while significantly reducing the use of financial and natural resources in developing countries. Reverse innovations are frugal products and services successful in developing markets that make their way back to industrialized countries by creating new market segments. Therefore, both concepts are crucial for facing sustainability challenges in developing countries and may also lend insights to business models in industrialized countries. As the relationship between frugal and reverse innovation and sustainability remains largely unexplored in the literature, this study aims to fill in this gap and answer the research question: How can frugal and reverse innovation strengthen sustainable development, and how can business models in this context be systemized and described? Employing a multiple case study design, a total of 59 frugal products and services were investigated from a business models and sustainability strategy perspective from June 2014 until June 2015. The direction of innovation was distinguished between (a) from developing countries to developing countries, (b) from industrialized countries to developing countries, (c) from industrialized countries to industrialized countries, and (d) from developing countries to industrialized countries with the purpose to find differences between different directions of innovation and economies. Findings show that entrepreneurs and companies offering frugal and reverse products and services manage to combine the business model elements in an insightful manner and create economic, social and environmental value."

    abstract="Transport risks in supply chains have increasingly lead to significant capital losses. Insurance claims against such losses have grown accordingly, while simultaneous advances in technology lead to continuously larger volumes of data recorded. Traditional risk evaluation methods in insurance struggle to account for rising supply chain complexity which is reflected by growing amount and dimensionality of supply chain data. Therefore decision-makers in the transport insurance industry need new ways of appropriate knowledge representation to support transport insurance providers with daily tasks such as premium tariffing. This paper presents a method based on multidimensional scaling (MDS) for the identification of groups of similar claims as a first step towards the improvement of supply chain risk evaluation and forecasting. We show the application potential of transforming and visualising transport damage claims data as the basis for developing decision support systems (DSS) to support transport insurance providers in tasks such as premium tariffing as well as transport and supply chain managers in risk mitigation and prevention activities."

The early prediction of the expected logistics performance of single production orders as well as for the entire manufacturing system is a pivotal strategic corporate activity. However, companies frequently find themselves struggling to foresee and integrate operational dynamic effects related to production orders into production planning decisions. Such dynamic interdependency effects between orders in close temporal and spatial neighbourhoods can have an impact on logistics performance. In this research, we introduce an index measure that quantifies the spatial and temporal relation of production orders and investigate dynamic effects of production order interdependencies using real production feedback data and derive first results for the improvement of the prediction of logistics performance in an early production planning stage as well as for the configuration of production planning and control."

The flip-side of such systems under distributed control is the rise of myopic (short-sighted) decision making, leading to system nervousness and loss of performance. Designing manufacturing (control) systems for distributed control hence is a significant challenge: With the system performance becoming an emergent property of the interplay of various decision making entities, system designers become conductors of societies of cyber-physical systems, seeking to balance the desirable traits of distributing control while limiting the negative effects of myopic decision making. In this contribution, we set out to help manufacturing system designers to better understand myopic behavior and the design decisions that are known to affect it. Our contribution can serve as a design aid for planners of distributed control systems by structuring the solution space of design decisions to control myopic behavior. By pointing to examples from various research streams, we provide guidance for system designers, seeking to maximize the performance of distributed production control systems."

Traditionally capacity demand at each worksystem is determined from standard operating processes and estimated production flow rates, accounting for a desired level of utilization or required throughput times. However, for distributed production control systems, the flows across multiple possible production paths are not known a priori. In this contribution, we use methods from algorithmic game-theory and traffic-modeling to predict the flows, and hence capacity demand across worksystems, based on the available production paths and desired output rates, assuming non-cooperative agents with global information. We propose an iterative algorithm that converges simultaneously to a feasible capacity distribution and a flow distribution over multiple paths that satisfies Wardrop's first principle. We demonstrate our method on models of real-world production networks. "

    abstract = "Abstract The tool manufacturing industry is constantly facing the challenge of producing qualitative products while reducing costs. The challenge is increased partly due to the uniqueness of the products and partly due to the architecture of the production facilities. Nowadays tools and dies are still being produced in job-shop environments due to the complexity and high variance of the products. In such a production facility capacity planning is of vital importance as scarce resources need to be cleverly managed in order to obtain a high utilization. However, with unique parts all required processes cannot be fully determined in advance and consequently, in practice, only the estimated cost of the products is used in order to determine the amount of work required to produce them. As a result, the earlier the cost of production for the product can be determined, the better can the long-term investments in production capacity be planned in the job-shop. For this purpose numerous cost estimation techniques have been developed during the past years. From simple parametric methods to complex feature- and case-based cost estimation techniques, the literature is rich with theoretical information intended to address this problem. However, researchers' access to real cost data is almost inexistent as companies are understandably reluctant to release cost information externally. This article aims at revealing the connection between long term capacity planning and the estimated product cost. A secondary aim is investigating to what extent developed cost estimation methods have-been tested with real cost information and furthermore review how accurate they have been established to be. First, an overview of cost estimation as well as a description of various methods will be presented along with an insight into the accuracy of such methods in practice. Secondly, the basics of long-term capacity planning are approached by the paper followed by a discussion of the connection between the two different research foci based on interviews with industry experts."

If order due dates are missed, a common intuitive reaction of production planners is to adjust planned lead times. How often and to what extent updates are reasonable has previously been unclear because, while trying to improve the logistic target achievement, planned lead time adjustments may actually cause an opposite effect, which is known as the Lead Time Syndrome (LTS) of Manufacturing Control. Previous research on the LTS interactions has shown that the line of argumentation of the LTS is valid. Knollmann et al. showed by means of mathematical modeling, control-theoretic simulation and case study research that planned lead time adjustments lead to a short-term increase in lead time variation, thus to an increase in lateness variation and to a decrease in due date reliability. The authors suggest to choose update frequency depending on the ratio of latency period and the update frequency (the period between two consecutive adjustments) as the misbalance of these two parameters turns out to be the main trigger of the LTS. Sel\c{c}uk investigated the LTS by means of queuing theory in an independent approach. The authors concluded that planned lead time adjustments lead to an increase in process variability, thus to high WIP levels and long lead times. However, they suggest to reduce update frequency, to decrease process variability and thus to avoid LTS. This conclusion is not in line with the conclusions drawn from the research presented by Knollmann et al.. Therefore, this paper compares the different research approaches methodologies and discusses how the different research methodologies impact the conclusions drawn for practice application. This comparison provides further insights into LTS research and indicates further research fields."

    abstract="Frugal innovation gains momentum in literature and practice as the next important management approach transferred from East to West after lean. The two paradigms have launched powerful ideas challenging the traditional Western approaches, with frugal innovation being the most recent. This paper focuses on the application of lean management and frugal innovation in the field of engineering. The principles employed during the design stages are responsible for a high percentage of logistics costs and consequently influence significantly logistics processes. Therefore, we highlight similarities and differences of the two approaches, and show how to combine the underlying principles in order to develop more efficient products with efficient production processes especially for cost-sensitive consumers in both developing and developed countries. The implications of lean and frugal engineering for procurement, production, distribution and disposal logistics are relevant not only for sustainability managers, product or logistics managers concerned with sustainability aspects but also for executives aiming to expand their operations in developing countries."

    abstract = {The term 'synchronization' in manufacturing refers to the provision of the right components to the subsequent production steps at the right moment in time. It is widely assumed that synchronization is beneficial to the logistics performance of manufacturing systems. However, it has been shown that synchronization phenomena can be detrimental to systems in which they emerge. To study if synchronization phenomena also occur in and affect manufacturing systems' performance, a formal quantification and holistic understanding of the types of synchronization phenomena emerging in manufacturing are needed. This article aims to fill this research gap by developing synchronization measures for manufacturing systems, applying these measures to real-world production feedback data and utilising them to test the assumption about synchronization's beneficial effect on logistics performance. We identify two distinct synchronization types occurring in manufacturing systems, logistics and physics synchronization, and show that they are negatively correlated. Further, we show that logistics synchronization and due date performance exhibit anti-correlation and thus question the assumption that synchronization leads to higher efficiency in manufacturing systems. This article aids production managers in designing and optimising production systems, and supports further empirical research in production planning and control and production system design.},

    abstract="The term 'synchronization' in manufacturing refers to the provision of the right components to the subsequent production steps at the right moment in time. It is still unclear how manufacturing system characteristics impact synchronization. Thus, the purpose of this paper is to investigate the effect of manufacturing systems' characteristics on the emergence of logistics synchronization in them. We conduct a discrete-event simulation study to examine the effect of three system characteristics: (1) material flow network architecture, (2) work content variation, and (3) order arrival pattern. Our findings suggest that the material flow network architecture and the work content variation are related to logistics synchronization. Linear manufacturing systems with stable processing times such as flow shops operate at high logistics synchronization levels, while highly connected systems with high variability of processing times such as job shops exhibit lower synchronization levels."

In this paper, dynamic models are used to characterize lead time instability in two approaches to work system lead time adjustment. Minimum damping is calculated as a function of lead time adjustment parameters. Industrial data are used to illustrate how the approach provides guidance in selecting production planning and control parameters, with the goal of ensuring stability as a key dynamic foundation for satisfying work system logistic performance targets.

The aim of this study is to investigate the conditions for emergence of synchronization and its effects on the wide spectrum of production logistics performance objectives. Using queueing theory as the underlying methodology for deductive modeling of manufacturing systems, we run computer simulations on networks of queueing systems and investigate synchronization measurements in relation to system parameters and performance indicators. Our initial findings suggest that different types of manufacturing systems display different synchronization behaviors and that periodically driven systems with deterministic arrival and service rates display higher synchronization in comparison to stochastic ones. Further, we show that intrinsic physics synchronization is correlated to capacity utilization, throughput times and WIP levels, suggesting the co-activity of operations is related to highly utilized systems, while external physics synchronization is anticorrelated to throughput times and WIP levels, suggesting that higher efficiencies emerge with workstation repetitive behavior."

One factor influencing the delivery reliability is the due date performance (DDP) within production. Although the significance of DDP has been established, the question of how to measure it remains. A review of existing literature shows the vast amount of different DDP measures (lateness, relative lateness, tardiness, schedule reliability, etc.). The purpose of this paper is to compare different DDP measures used in manufacturing in order to assess their interrelationship, so that companies are better able to understand the impact of their choice of measure. A review of DDP measures described in literature is performed, followed by statistical analysis of the relations between those measures computed on production feedback data from four real-world manufacturers. The results indicate that there exist differences across DDP measure groups. Further research is needed to assess the benefits of each measure in a given situation."

Today, recovering from disruptions represents a major challenge for supply chain professionals. In literature, most recovery methods are based on redundancy and flexibility. Their drawbacks are high inventory and coordination costs. The companies analyzed in this paper took another approach: they recovered by collaborating with their network partners, especially by temporarily sharing resources. Based on the relational view theory, this paper aims to describe whether and how companies can gain competitive advantage by relying on collaboration during the recovery process. A multiple case study with companies from the automotive and electronics industries is conducted. Six cases are analyzed with regard to the recovery characteristics and enabler. Seven propositions are derived that give potential for further research on this promising recovery method.}

Exemplary, the lead time syndrome (LTS) represents one of these counterproductive actions. While planners aim to improve due date reliability by planned lead time adjustments, the result is often an aggravation of due date reliability. This is due to human behaviour in the decision-making process, which can be biased. Despite its potential to improve the logistic performance, human needs were out of scope of recent investigations in the field of logistics. The aim of this paper is to close this research gap by means of a case study and research on human behaviour in the field of psychology. The result is the determination of guidelines to improve the logistic performance in future decision-support systems by considering human needs.}

An elementary flux mode is a functionally relevant, non-decomposable path through a given network. In this paper, we apply elementary flux mode analysis to manufacturing systems, with the aim of using the number of EFMs as a predictor for resource significance in the manufacturing system. For this, we formulate a network representation of a manufacturing process, which allows us to define the manufacturing equivalent of a stoichiometric matrix to draw an analogy between metabolic and manufacturing systems. This, in turn, allows the computation of EFMs, which we conduct in a case-study for a real manufacturing system. We further show that the change of EFMs under resource breakdown is a good indicator of the average order lateness in the manufacturing system. In this way, EFMs provide insight into the relationship of network structure and function in manufacturing. }

    abstract = "Abstract The topic of supply network disruption recovery has started to receive great attention within the academic as well as the business world. This is due to increasingly complex supply networks and the rise of natural and man-made disasters in quantity and severity. In this paper, the topic is approached in an interdisciplinary bio-inspired way. The transferability of biological self-healing principles to the recovery of supply network disruptions is analysed and first propositions are derived. A single case study of the Japanese microcontroller company Renesas Electronics is analysed with regard to the developed propositions. A strategically important plant of Renesas was severely damaged by the triple disaster in Japan in 2011 which led to a disruption of the company's supply network. Five out of six propositions regarding the transferability of biological self-healing are, at least partly, proven. Furthermore, the importance of close collaboration within a network of suppliers, customers and competitors is emphasized. The results make further research in this academically still underdeveloped field promising, especially with regard to implications and strategies for supply chain risk managers. "
