Blind Spot indentify areas as waste

Posted in Lean Six Sigma

Lots of blind spots that are not recognized by the member in the production area. Such as the placement of goods in excess capacity, material buildup beyond the maximum limit given, and WIP are left without handling, work equipment is not in place, the wiring is a mess and so forth. Although it seems simple, but if left unchecked will become a habit and waste make repeated. And will ultimately increase the costs that should not be needed. For example, regular overtime to clean up items that are not used, fix the items that are not neat and so on. Work should be carried out during working hours, the company must pay again to do the work.

Lean Six Sigma for process improvement in a six sigma project executor should be able to identify the blind spot in the work areas, especially the unconscious member concerned. This identification should be carried out continuously and there is always a search for sources of waste along the flow processes in the company. Starting from the procurement of goods from suppliers, temporary storage of goods at the loading bay, the main storage barn, storage shed each process, the process of inter-product transfer process to finished goods which are stored in the finished goods store. Then the cream back to the customer. Along the stream there were many opportunities for waste that must be addressed

Excess Production will Advance Procurement of Materials and Parts

Posted in Management, and Manufacturing Waste

In the previous discussion stated that overproduction will lead to stock products abundant in the area of store that can cause uncontrolled 5S condition. Of course, not only that caused by excess production. Procurement is also affected by the production that is not balanced.

Increased procurement would not want to do to replace the materials and parts that had already become a product. This is done to improve production efficiency to avoid waste in other lines.

Lean manufacturing is like a pillar of the house. They mutually support one another. If there is one out of balance it must be corrected, or other elements relating will be damaged as well.
