Proposed Agenda

• Explination of timestudies.
• Line capacity calculation.
• Manpower planning.
• World class manufacturing cell (Video).
• Line balancing.
Time Study & Line Balancing

1. Conducting a timestudy:
• Identify all the activities of an operation (Welding operation):
• load part in jig, clamp and start cycle (operator).
• robot welding the part (machine auto cycle).
• unload part from welding jig (operator).
• Record the time utilised to perform each activity:
• load the part 10 seconds (operator)
• Welding 40 seconds (robot)
• Unloading 5 seconds (operator)
• Operator allowance 9% of total time: 5 seconds
Total time to produce a part: 60 seconds (60 parts per hour).
• Operations such as leak testing and final checking have no machine time all the time is
operator time.
Line Capacity / Hourly Target

Available time
Available time per shift:(8hours x 60 minutes) 480
Less: Lunch time 30
Less: Meeting 10
Less: Houskeeping 5
Net available time: 435
Less :Planned down time:
Robotic Consumable changes: 10%
Machine availabilty (100% - 10%) 90%
Total available time:(435 x 90%) 392

Shift Target = (392 minutes / 1minute per part) 392 parts


Hourly Target = (392 parts / 7.35 hours) 53 parts per hour

Total Operators: 15
Revised Cycle Times & Output
Revised Process Flow: 6-Jun-07

Assumptions:
1. Line availability = 80%
2. Current bottleneck = 72 / hour at 100%. At 80% availability the revised hourly target = 58 parts / hour.
3. Based on current demand the tact time = 51 parts / hour (demand can be achieved in 2 shifts, any increase will require a 3rd shift)

1. Remove one water leak tester from the line.


2. Relocate calibrator to sensor boss rolling.
3. Swing outlet cone tack station 180 degrees.
4. Re-position spot weld closer to clinching.
