Reduction in Lead Time of Automated Gas Fired Kit Fitting Box Using QC Tools and Strategies.

9 pagesPublished: August 5, 2017

Abstract

Recently in a competitive manufacturing sector, lead time is the most important factor in order to compete in the market. This leads every manufacturer to decrease production time and increase quality of the product. Due to improper work cycle delay of a product occurs. The major changes required are operation sequence, flow of material in the workshop, work cycle, etc. In this paper, the authors have delved into the causes of excessive lead time and suggest practical inexpensive strategies for reducing it. Recommendations are based on detailed study of manufacturing facility and processes for a time period of 6 months in the industry. After describing the relationship between lead time, material flow time and variance and reviewing potential methods for reducing lead time by reducing mean flow time of material and operation time of an automated gas fired kit fitting box (hereafter termed as “box”). The aim of this paper is also to demonstrate the use of QC tools and Kaizen in the industry as to tool for improvement in manufacturing sector especially in small to medium scale industries.

Keyphrases: 5S., kaizen., Lead time reduction., material flow time., workplace management.
