Machine components clustering with DSM and repeating method : case study of a soil mixing machine
Industrial Engineering Department, Faculty of Engineering, King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, Bangkok, Thailand
In this study, components of the machine are analyzed to group all components into modular groups with a case study of a soil mixing machine. The study begins by creating a design structure matrix of all components. Next, the design structure matrix is transferred into a distance matrix of all components with Jaccard method. After that, the equation of complete linkage must be applied to change the distance matrix to a tree dendrogram for showing the relationship of machine components and dependent coefficient. With this tree dendrogram, six clusters are arranged:- the 1st cluster has 8 modules at the lowest dependent coefficient, the 2nd cluster has 7 modules, the 3rd cluster has 6 modules, the 4th cluster has 5 modules, the 5th cluster has 4 modules, and the 6th cluster has 2 modules at the highest dependent coefficient. Finally, the 1st cluster with 8 modules is considered to be the most proper cluster for this soil mixing machine by applying the repeating method to analyze all six clusters.
