Traditionally direct workers in the finishing and packing areas are divided by skills into sub-sections called pressing, checking, packing, etc. In fact this method of working has generated a massive amount of unnecessary and repetitive activities.
Factories who run continuous production year-around with the same product can integrate the finishing/packing process with the sewing structure. But this is not feasible if a factory manufactures a variety of products in different order quantities.
With engineering input based on Lean and just-in-time principles, it is possible to significantly improve utilization of manpower in the finishing/packing areas even if the factory is running many different products in different order sizes. In fact, it is not difficult to improve performance or shift from traditional to just-in-time structure in these areas with benefits which far outweigh the effort.
Lean principles employed here include eliminating unnecessary activities, reducing cycle time and smoothing one-piece workflow based on the first-in-first-out (FIFO) concept which together will allow the factory to synchronize the worker pace with the demand coming from the sewing department.
This course covers the Lean techniques to improve the finishing/packing structure through the simplification of activities with more efficient teams and less inventory.
You will be able to:
- Analyze, eliminate and simplify activities
- Design team-based concept
- Design workstation activity visuals
- Set bump-jump concept driving one-piece flow
- Implement successfully the new concept
