Implementation of TPS Training (2/2)

Last time, I reported the session 1 which was mostly sit-down-style lecture. This time, I report the practical training at the site one month later.

Session 2

4 days of the practical trainings at the site, the first half was spent for learning the outline of the TPS ( line improvement and KANBAN system). The training contained the attendants to evaluate their own workplace with the knowledge from the lecture, to detect what should be improved, and to improve those. But the improvement activities carried out while the ordinary production was made, so the small improvements were carried out under limited condition of not stopping the lines. The large improvements were only to collect the idea, and were going to proceed when the lines can be stopped later date.

We made 2 teams.

Improvements of the Team Manufacturing

Until then, 14 operators were doing overtime work until 2223 o'clock everyday freely by their own ways in the inventory of many works in process . By the improvement of the members, the work turn was decided, the process was divided, the standardized work was made, and the line was structured to perform the Tact time producing.

As the result, the same amount of products were manufactured successfully with 9 operators by 17 o'clock.

Productivity was improved by 272%!

Improvements of the Team Structure (Kanban System)

In the Process from Warehouse→Machinery Process→Finishing→Washing→Warehouse→Assembly, the team structured Kanban system, the inventory of work in process can be controlled by the Kanban system, and that became the machinery processed structure which was synchronized for assembling.
