Factory Dynamics

This is a description for a learning module from Maricopa Advanced Technology Education Center. This PDF describes the module; access may be purchased by visiting the MATEC website. Factory dynamics is an essential element for continuous improvement of productivity within complex manufacturing operations. Increasingly, learners play key roles in decision making that influences performance of the entire fab. This module provides an understanding of the variables, metrics, and analytical techniques used to make control decisions that affect equipment, personnel activities, and work-in-process (WIP) inventory. Realistic scenarios and an interactive simulation develops skills for: production monitoring; calculation and analysis of variables such as start rate, cycle time, and yield; and setting equipment and factory parameters to achieve maximum efficiency and product quality.
