Company: INDUSTRIAL SECTOR.

 

Case study:

An important rubber manufacturing company in continuous process. The CEO was concerned about the high volume of scrap, and its cost, generated by the manufacturing process in start-ups and reference changes, due to the increase in product portfolio, market requirements and the increase in the level of quality demanded.

 

Analysis:

When the manufacturing process analysis was conducted it was found that there was no standardised systematic start-up or operation of production lines. On the other hand, new quality standards were not transferred to the production process, thereby Quality ended up rejecting a high % of the final product.

 

Project:

  • The set-up and start-up process of production lines were reassessed and standardised, and the roles and responsibilities of factory personnel reorganised creating the figure of responsible of reference change.
  • The new standards were implemented and operating parameters of each of the machines in the production process were redefined.
  • New quality controls and a scrap monitoring model were implemented, training everyone involved.

 

Results:

  • Scrap was reduced by 58%, leading to a 35% increase in productivity.
  • Changing times for lines were standardised, obtaining an improvement in achieving scheduling.
