Students Win with Production Project

Strathclyde Students header

Strathclyde University Students who have been working in the Allied Vehicles production department have won Best Post Graduate Project at the Design, Manufacture and Engineering Management (DMEM) awards.

Industry Work Placement

The three students – Pierric Appert, Lars Densky and Lennart Fahnenmüller – joined the company on an industry work placement at the start of 2016 and their hard work has certainly paid off.

The team has been working within the production department on their winning project, which is titled: ‘From Craft to Continuous Production’. The project looks at Allied’s highest volume production vehicle, the Peugeot Partner, focusing on how the introduction of a straight line concept would allow the business to increase output, reduce production times and allow greater predictability.
