Bill Gaw's Lean Manufacturing,
Slide 3-12 presents the initial layout for our case study company’s sequential production project. Note that just-in-time (JIT) suppliers will feed their parts, components and sub-assemblies directly to the work cell sub-assembly, module assembly and final assembly areas. Production will flow from sub-assembly areas to tutorial build areas to the final assembly areas. All parts are off the floor—stored on racks and moved in accordance with a JIT pull-system. Final assembly and test are accomplished in five work stations that have been balanced to each other and to the sub-assembly/tutorial feeder lines.
Learned: To be successful in the startup
of a sequential production line, we must first
walk before we run. If we do not have parts suppliers that
can support a JIT pull-system, then we must still use
our stockroom to store excess support materials until
suppliers come up to speed. It is not uncommon to increase
inventory levels at the start of a sequential production
project to assure adequate material availability. However,
as we manage our supplier development program, and supply
lines become stable, inventory will be reduced significantly
to below prior history.
