Method for Holistic Optimization of the Manufacturing Process

Cezarina Afteni, Gabriel Frumuşanu and Alexandru Epureanu

Abstract—This paper concerns a new approach of the optimization problem, intending to turn into profit the last evolutions from IT domain. On the base of this approach, both new concept (the holistic optimization), and method (“zoom & pick”) for its implementation it in manufacturing process optimization were developed. According to the new concept, the optimization problem gets a new structure, which includes not only the optimal solution finding, but also the optimal formalization of the problem as well as the tooling for assessing the position of potential solutions relative to the optimal one. The method for holistic optimization successively addresses the optimized object at different levels of its description. The main application domain is the manufacturing process from “Make to Order” environment, which is difficult to optimize because of dealing with a wide range of products.

Index Terms—Holistic optimization, manufacturing process, comparative assessment, optimality assurance system.
