In the automobile manufacturing process, workers will meet a lot of devices used for installation of car components. for example, nut bolts, screwdrivers, wrenches from the smallest and large. If not taken seriously it will make workers confused and stressed because of the many tools used. Variations of many of these things that make workers uncomfortable to work.
In 5s management concepts as discussed earlier, that the work should be in place the equipment as close as possible to the workers. However, the problem remains the many types of equipment used. It is therefore necessary planning and management of must be arranged so that workers can work comfortably and quickly. Noteworthy is easy to restore the equipment operator and also took it easy.
Here are some considerations for achieving lean manufacturing within the framework of waste reduction activities in production:
– Can the equipment be removed? if possible can be done by hand, then remove the equipment.
– Can variation reduced equipment? whether the various variations in tightening operations can be combined into a smaller variation through standardization in the design stage.
– What tools are placed in an efficient? Waste of motion and possible injury to workers can be avoided by placing frequently used items at a height between waist and shoulders of workers.
– Can workers easily recognize tool storage places. image creation and image storage devices in place will make it easier for workers to know where to return the goods.
This is the prayer one of the 5S management (Seiton) in relation to storage tools to achieve lean manufacturing
