Research Area

The field study in Manufacturing System Laboratory (LSM DTI-UI) focuses on the issue of a sustainable industry that is expected not only to have an efficient production system, but also environmentally-friendly. Therefore, the studies are usually carried out in the manufacturing, distribution, and development process. Those are concentrated in the three main areas which each area consists of the steps and become important part of sustainable industrial system. The steps which are part of Manufacturing System Laboratory’s research area can be seen in the following figure (except the steps are circled with red dashed line)


A. Production System

LSM DTI-UI reviews the transformation process of the production inputs in the form of raw materials, machine, labor, capital, and information that mutually interact each other to form production output such as product, waste, information, etc. Research areas which are developed in this field include:

  • Productivity Management with the research topic:
    • Production Management System
    • Advance Production Management
    • Production System Design
    • Kanban
  • Lean Management with the  research topic:
    • Just in Time
    • Continuous Improvement

 B. Logistics and Distribution Systems:

The researches integrated suppliers, manufacturers, warehouses, and retailers efficiently. Therefore, the output will be manufactured and distributed on the quantity, location, and time accordingly. Research areas developed in this field include:

  • Scheduling production with the research topic:
    • Scheduling
    • Inventory
    • Distribution Logistics
    • Material Management

C. Advanced Manufacturing

Advanced Manufacturing is the development of traditional manufacturing systems with modern technology or changes in the structure of the system in order to provide a variety of products capable to respond market quickly and follow the demands of the environment. Through the development of LSM DTI-UI, researches are expected to contribute manufacturing industry and other alternate industry. Research areas developed in this field include:

  • Technology Management with the research topic:
    • RMS
    • FMS
  • Remanufacture with the research topic:
    • Reverse Logistics
    • Green Supplier Selection
