Production Cost Case Generation by a Recursive Monte-Carlo Method in Electrical Machine Production

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceedingpeer-review


Electrical machine production is a multi-disciplinary area, comprising traditional mechanical
processes such as sheet metal cutting, chemical processes for insulation and electrical for the
working principles. In manufacturing, high throughput automation of coilwinding and sheet-cutting
is combined with complex assembly, such as slotting the coils, often performed manually, but with
increasing interest in automation. Followed by inherently slow processes such as the curing of resins
for insulation, this poses a very difficult challenge for production system designers. Selecting the
most efficient combination of low and high cycle time processes, appropriate levels of automation
and sufficient buffer levels, while minimizing investments and work in progress costs.
