Project example - Conception and introduction of a pilot line for clocked manufacturing of tools for massive forming




The target of this project was the conception and introduction of a pilot line for clocked manufacturing of tools for massive forming.

For this purpose the following steps were performed:

  • Specification of a concept for clocked manufacturing in the process sequence
  • Detailed planning of the introduction and implementation of the pilot line along with a specification of required infrastructure
  • Staff training for the new manufacturing concept with an educational game which simulates the new manufacturing concept and clarifies uncertainties of the staff
  • Supervision of the implementation of the pilot line and controlling of the impact on the key figures for production

The results of this project were the introduction of a clocked pilot line for tool making to reduce secondary process time and reduction of order lead time from 7 to 3.5 days.
