Internship and graduation assignments
 

An interesting internship or graduation assignment is important for your future. At Vanboxtel, we gladly offer enthusiastic students an informative experience. We do not have any ready-made assignments, but we would rather look at where your interests lie together with you and determine how these fit in with current issues within our company. Thus, we will develop an internship or graduation assignment that challenges and helps us both.

The assignments below will give you an idea of the possibilities.

University-level graduation assignment

Research into warehouse congestion and the logic of logistics in order to develop an improved approach.

Description of the assignment:
Despite the steady growth of automation in logistics, employees still play a crucial part in most warehouses. They walk or drive through the hallways to place items or to collect them for a picking order. When there are many employees at the same place at the same time in the warehouse, it may be possible that they are blocking each other and are thus hindered from doing their job. This problem is known as congestion and is quite harmful to productivity. What causes congestion? Can we predict its occurrence and possibly even prevent it by structuring the warehouse processes differently? The analysis is primarily based on data generated by the Warehouse Management System (WMS) at one of Vanboxtel's customers. The problem is tackled with a practice-based approached, by looking at the situation in a warehouse where congestion occurs.

Graduate internship at university of applied sciences (HBO) level

The realisation of a web application to visual data in the Warehouse Management System (WMS).

Description of the assignment:
An important condition for optimal productivity in warehouses is having good insight into the goods flows. Hence the challenge to develop a web application that visualises data in the WMS in a 2D or 3D environment. This allows customers to see, at a glance, the warehouse stock and the movements on the work floor. Thus, all sorts of information is presented clearly, such as the empty spaces in the warehouse, the products that are approaching their expiration date and the so-called fast-moving products (items that are picked often). But it will also show the routes of employees and forklift trucks, historically and in semi real-time. The more information the application shows, the better the foundation for optimal structuring of the warehouse.
