General Recipe: Multiproduct Facility Design; Technology Transfer
The crucial task for engineers involved in designing manufacturing facilities is to determine the most efficient way to dimension process cell equipment to achieve the required production capacity when beginning with general recipes. In case of technology transfer, the challenge is the assessment of facility production capability to perform the process requirements, being defined in the general recipe. This paper suggests a useful method for determining process cell equipment and equipment functionality based on number of products, their quantity and general recipe data. In case of technology transfer to other sites or cells, it is suggested how to assess available production capability, based on general recipe data and installed equipment capability. The suggested method can be useful during multiproduct facility dimensioning and, in case of technology transfer, the assessment of existing facilities. The result of implemented method is the best way to optimal price/performance ratio, in case of investment decisions, and reduction of life-cycle engineering efforts.
