Layout Process for Shortening the Time Orders

Posted in Toyota Production System

Note the design or layout of the process in a factory. In the past, in this factory every machine out of five of the booth lathes, milling machines, and driller placed side by side: one machine is held by a worker, for example one only holds one turner lathe.

According to the Toyota production system ,The engine layout would be reformed to expedite the flow of production.Therefore, every worker will hold three types of machines. For example, one worker will hold a lathe, a milling machine, and a drilling machine at the same time. This system is called double-handling process (multi-process holding). In other words, single-function workers, a concept that was applicable at the Toyota factory, now a dual-function workers.

Shortening the Preparation Time

Posted in Toyota Production System

One of the most difficult process in the current production is about preparation. In a pressing process, for example, common sense to determine that cost reduction can be obtained by continuously using one type of mold, thereby allowing the largest lot size and reduce the cost of preparation. However, in a state where the last process has been smooth production and reduce the dosage between the pons and the next line of the body, as a process preceding the pressing need to prepare quickly and frequently. This means changing the type of mold for the press in accordance with various types of products repeatedly ole taken the next process.
