Group technology supporting application of lean manufacturing (LM) based on a polish case study. Measurable results and real problems
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes the Group Technology supporting application of the Lean Manufacturing concept and presents the main functions and various problems tackled when implementing individual program steps such as the Group Technology classification and a coding system, application of the Group Technology in an engineering database design and autonomous maintenance or setup activities. The problem was characterized through basic objectives defined for actions, the Lean Manufacturing implementation model and the fulfillment of KPIs (key performance indicators). The final section addresses the results obtained, sets out recommendations (conclusions) for further action and describes the key problems arising in the course of implementation. The case study provided in the paper concerns implementation of the Group Technology supporting Lean Manufacturing in the metal and mechanical industry. The implementation model described can be adapted to other companies operating in this sector. © 2018, Springer International Publishing AG.
