Visit of case study winners „Planning a factory“ to ThermCable GmbH


The manufacturer ThermCable GmbH was established in 2007 and produces since that time customized cable products, which are applied in different areas, such as electronic semiconductors or analysis systems.

In the study case „Planning a factory“ students of the first semester got the task to arrange a complicated process chain in a new manufacturing hall. The focus was set on an efficient production cycle, on the inlet and outlet belt and furthermore on the accessibility to the machines. The best three participant groups were invited to the factory site of the ThermCable GmbH in Langenselbold. Students got there the possibility to visit the manufacturing of different cable products and to discuss the study case results with experts on?site. The complicated production of signal transmissions, which had up to six conductors with an outside?diameter of approximate 2 mm, was very impressive.
For hospitality, mentoring the students and the interesting conversations we would like to thank ThermCable GmbH. Particularly Mr. Jais, who supported the study case and organized a very interesting field trip for the students .
