Product Type teaching material
The Toyota Production System (TPS) is a continuous improvement philosophy. It became the basis for the LEAN and Six Sigma manufacturing philosophies.
A significant element of TPS is autonomation, or “automation with a human touch”. In the same way that le
an techniques have been applied to automotive manufacturing, the principles of autonomation can be applied to offshore wind farm maintenance practices to improve turbine availability. This paper presents a mothership concept design to support an autonomation approach to offshore wind farm maintenance practices, developed through an implementation of the NetWork model of Environmental Psychology and biophilic design. The NetWork model encompasses both how and where work is done and how workers, processes and places are supported. It differs from previous Environmental Psychology models by focusing on the work that is to be done and how to enable it to be done most effectively.
