Material flows

 
 
Material flows

Dates analysis, planning and optimization are closely related, because this sequence can be ensured cycle of continuous improvement, which brings businesses a competitive advantage and a higher probability of maintaining profitability. Material flows can be described as an organized movement active (equipment, operations) and passive (material goods) elements in the enterprise.

 

 

General procedure for the analysis, planning and optimization of material flows:

  1. Analysis of the current situation, which can be involved in planning as well as the basis for comparison with the optimization activities.
  2. The planned use of existing processes or solutions + selecting an appropriate method or tool to determine the future characteristics of the process.
  3. Optimization of existing or. future state.

 

Company INNOV8 focuses on material flows:

  1. Design of logistics concepts (eg. milkrun).
  2. The technique.
  3. Work operations.
  4. Covers.
  5. Staff.

The methods used in the analysis, planning and optimization of material flows:

  1. STATIC METHODS
    1. MTM
    2. FACTORYFLOW
    3. SANKEY DIAGRAM
  2. DYNAMIC METHODS
    1.  PLANT SIMULATION

 

 

 

STUDY CASE:

 

Description of project conditions:

The company plans to change the supply lines of empty containers from the existing situation to the new one. The existing condition of the commission's vision zone, located compared to assembly line workers who operate either manually or using pallet jacks or forklift. New concept to ensure the smooth running of the assembly lines, flexibly respond to changes in production and unforeseen events.

 

Project objective:

Proposal for a new method of supplying assembly lines empty packaging.

 

 

Project benefits:

  1. Proposal for a new layout in the production area.
  2. Proposal for a new method of supplying assembly lines.
  3. Simulation verification entire concept.
