Lunchlecture TBA

Lunchlezing TBA On Monday 5th of march 2018 Zack and Kaj from TBA visited the Faculty of 3me at TU Delft. To give a presentation on TBA and what projects they both work on during their time at the company. At first, they started talking about TBA in general and giving examples on what type of project they work on. TBA is mostly working on simulations to solve problems and find them before a Container terminal is build. It was very impressive to see how they find problems and the way it was solved. Also, the structure of the project was interested to see. From the start of a simple simulation to a full working terminal was a good example of TBA. After the lecture it was mentioned that if you are looking for a graduation project with an interest on simulations? Send an email to TBA because there are still looking for students

Excursion CEVA

For the first time this academic year an excursion to a warehouse was organised for TEL students. On the 28th of februari an excited group of students took the tram to the CEVA logistics compound in The Hague. We were welcomed with some coffee and tea and started the day with an introductory talk from Anna Flamos about CEVA logistics. Shortly after, we split into two groups and went on a warehouse tour with operational managers as our guides. They explained the flow of goods within the distribution centre and gave us an insight in the daily routine. It was nice to be allowed to ask question about anything but soon our enthousiasm had to be limited by the guides in order to finish the tour in time! The tour finished at the kitting department were components are combined in all kinds of different packages containing different combinations of components. We did a quick case study during which half of the students had to think of ways of increasing efficiency by making use of automation while the other group had to increase efficiency by using the current equipment only. After such an interesting morning it was time for a delicious lunch in the office building. In the meanwhile both groups of students presented their ideas and received feedback from CEVA staff members. The day was rounded of by a presentation from the contract manager of the CEVA location in The Hague containing more detailed information about the work done at their compound.
