Lean Connections: Making Information Flow Efficiently and by Chris Harris

By Chris Harris

Dependable info movement is an important prerequisite to the profitable implementation of lean creation ideas. yet whereas so much managers know how to make fabrics and manpower stream, the move of data has a tendency to be even more underdeveloped. Even businesses that excel at spotting waste and are differently adept at imposing the rules of lean creation are usually challenged to supply passable info stream.

Lean Connections: Making details movement successfully and successfully isdesigned that can assist you reconsider the best way your company perspectives details stream. It offers the development blocks of a finished information-flow method, displaying you calculations and strategies that may let you get the mandatory info to these people who desire it, after they desire it.

Following a logical and precise development, this guide exhibits the way to make info circulate in lean creation facility—

  • From the tip shopper via fabrics keep an eye on to the creation flooring
  • On the creation ground on the operator, staff, and cost circulate point
  • And then from the creation ground to the administration of the power

Employing a workbook layout, this handbook follows RNA production, a fictional corporation, via its implementation of a finished lean creation procedure. because the authors define RNA’s tools and suggestion approaches, they hire routines that ask questions about your personal construction process. Your problem is to imagine deeply concerning the solutions, in addition to the alterations that must be made to successfully make details circulate via your facility.

Make definite that everybody will get the data that they wish after they want it

Conceptually, 3D printing or layered production is the way to construct elements with no utilizing any part-specific tooling or dies from the pc aided layout (CAD) dossier of the half. this present day so much engineered units are 3D revealed first to envision for his or her form, dimension, and performance ahead of large-scale construction.

Cause Analysis: “The point of cause was that the motor running the machines press had an electrical failure. The root cause of the many failures of this marriage press is the design. The machine was designed in the early seventies and not designed for quick changeovers. It was designed to run a large volume of a single part numbers before being changed over. As we have continued our lean implementations, we have found ways to quickly change over, but other problems have arisen in the form of the downtime issues we are experiencing.

27,000 available seconds per shift (8 hours - two 15-minute breaks) ÷ 180 (demand) = 150 second takt time Takt time is one of the most important concepts in a lean manufacturing facility because it represents the rate at which a company should produce. The facility is producing the product exactly at the rate the customer is buying it. This is a key concept because, by producing to takt time, a facility can be sure it is not overproducing. The waste of overproduction is the most significant form of waste because it provides the environment for all other forms of waste to occur.

The customer orders 2,500 pieces per week, on average. But, the customer does not take the order in an even manner. The customer takes the order as it is needed, such as the following: Monday: 800 Tuesday: 0 Wednesday: 200 Thursday: 900 Friday: 600 If the Production area produced the same way in which the customer orders, the facility would be inefficient. 2: The level schedule is also important to the implementation of lean manufacturing principles because it is a good way to signal waste in the system.
