Project example - Conception and introduction of a pilot line for clocked manufacturing of tools for massive forming
The target of this project was theconception 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 theintroduction 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.
