Lean, Change over Time


Lean manufacturing in this project is used to remove no value added activities as much as possible so to improve quality, manufacture low cost with good quality components and also to reduce overall cycle time and change over time reduction of pipe bending process. Lean manufacturing is used as an objective technique that cause work tasks in a manufacturing process to be performed with a minimum of non-value adding activities. It has been rapidly adopted as a potential solution for many organizations, mainly within the automotive, aerospace and business related companies or industries. This work explains the implementation of lean principles in above said companies with a focus on the pipe bending assembly line. The main objective of lean principles is to develop several strategies to eliminate waste on the shop floor or sub assembly line of company. This paper mainly focuses or describes on how the value map streaming(VSM) and the other lean tool kaizen can be used appropriately to find the current state of value stream map of production line and planning & designing a desired future value map streaming with the continues improvement of process.
