MTM-ProKon (Production orientated Construction / product design)
Prokon is a method to analyse the mounting orientation of products and components during the product development phase. The analysis provides constructive approaches to assembly-oriented product development.
For who / admission requirements
Developers and constructors, as well as Industrial Engineers.
MTM knowledge is an advantage, but not necessary.
With ProKon you can describe the assembly sequence of parts or building groups of a product. Influence factors are defined on construction base as mounting obstacles and added by a score. The sum of the individual scores at a complete product, gives the possibility to decide about the quality of assembly, with a view to the mounting capability. On the basis of standardized product examples from practice, the whole rules of ProKon converted.
Objective and result
The participant is independently able to estimate mounting obstacles at the earliest possible stage of the product development. It works pulse increasing, promotes the communication and prevents production adjustments after all, including its cost. To promote the practice orientation, participants are requested to bring their own products (model) or construction examples. The participants will receive the ProKon analysis sheet, as Excel file, which is used for this training. It is therefore appropriate to take a Notebook/tablet to the training.
Every participant closes with an examination.
If sufficient participants are registered for a public training, a venue as central as possible will be chosen. Besides we provide in-house trainings. By filling in the contact form you can ask for more information. Afterwards we will contact you.
See event calendar for training dates.
TIP: take to the training a laptop or tablet, counting machine, pencil and eraser.© 2019 MTM Association Benelux
