Rapid Processing Machine

Posted in Concept, Lean Manufacturing, Manufacturing Waste, and Production Control

Generally, the engine speed is very favorable for the production process, as it saves time and cost for labor. The result will be doubled compared with manual processing. Accuracy and uniformity of products can be relied upon.

Today, the companies vying to do the automation of production processes with the engine speed is a top priority to meet the expected efficiency. With careful planning automation will become the main weapon to dominate the market. But there are benefits besides manufacturing actors must also be vigilant against possible losses caused by such automation.

Production of Large Lot | Dumpling-like Productions

Posted in Lean Manufacturing, Lean Six Sigma, and Manufacturing Waste

Why is the production of large lots could cause problems of over-production. Of course, high production capacity will lead to other problems that could hamper lean manufacturing project ever campaigned by the company. Of course there are specific strategies that must be done to produce in large quantities. Production of large quantities could be due;

1. Customer Demands
Products will be manufactured on a large scale because of the order of market / customer, thus forcing the production line to achieve the target time and the capacity of the product. The risk posed by these cases is very small because the product is directly absorbed by the market. Possible risks faced were the possibility of machine breakdown due to being forced to reach the target with a large capacity. If there is one machine that is damaged there will be a WIP is still waiting queue for processing. This is what can lead to waste because it takes place and energy to manage it.
