Lean Manufacturing: Assembly Line Efficiency Improvement
Saperas Caminal, Jordi
Safar, Mazin
This research project aims to present a Lean Manufacturing project implemented at a manufacturing company. I provide a broad description of the company. Special emphasis is put on the assembly line which I studied. I present the operations and tasks carried out on the line, as well as some technical concepts that relate to the problems encountered during the project. Following, I will walk you through the 6-weeks project providing examples of forms, videos, ideas, and tools that we used in the project. Likewise, I get in detail with all the ideas that came up and we implemented; focusing in depth on those ones that accounted for a major change in the process. Last, I conclude by summarizing the implementation process; how changes were done, how did we validate that the goal was reached; and what results we got. Key concepts: lean manufacturing, six sigma, continuous improvement, project management, total quality management.
