  What speed should I drive ?   - 6 January 2012 - Admin.SiteRead more or comments (0)


In general, smaller, lighter, more aerodynamic cars will get their best mileage at higher speeds. Bigger, heavier, less aerodynamic vehicles will get their best mileage at lower speeds. See sports car pictures.
This is actually a pretty complicated question. What you are asking is what constant speed will give the best mileage. We won't talk about stops and starts. We'll assume you are going on a very long highway trip and want to know what speed will give you the best mileage. ....

Calculate the average amount of time it takes a product to be delivered after it is ordered. If someone places an order for a set of saltshakers on the 5th of the month and they are delivered on the 15th then the total throughpout time is 10 days.

Calculate the total value–added time. This is time that actually adds value to the product. If the order was actually being worked on in the factory for two days, this is value–added time. The time the product was waiting to ....

SAVEZ–VOUS TRADUIRE EFFICIENT (ET INEFFICIENT) ?

La traduction de l'adjectif anglais efficient par l'adjectif français « efficient » est un anglicisme, qualifié d'abusif dans le Nouveau Petit Robert de 1994. L'adjectif français « efficient » n'est censé être employé que par les philosophes, lesquels parlent de « cause efficiente », c'est–à–dire « qui produit un effet ». Les anglicistes sont donc tenus de fuir ce faux–ami comme la peste et de ....

1. Production efficiency measures whether the economy is producing as much as possible without wasting precious resources. Theoretically, production efficiency will include all of the points along the production possibility frontier, but this is difficult to measure in practice.

2. Because resources are limited, being able to make products efficiently allows for higher levels of production. If the economy can't make more of a good without sacrificing the production of another, then ....



  Definition of 'Production Efficiency'   - 5 January 2012 - Admin.SiteRead more or comments (0)


1. An economic level at which the economy can no longer produce additional amounts of a good without lowering the production level of another product. This will happen when an economy is operating along its production possibility frontier.

2. The ability to produce a good using the fewest resources possible. Efficient production is achieved when a product is created at its lowest average total cost.

  How to determine the value of OEE   - 29 December 2011 - Admin.SiteRead more or comments (0)

Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) can be an accurate representation of overall plant performance. Derived from Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) and the Toyota Production System (lean), OEE is a single, calculated value that represents the plant’s effectiveness in three key performance indicators: 1) availability or runtime, 2) production rate, and 3) quality rate. This straightforward value was intended to be the product of these three values, but has become a convoluted, almost infinite ....



  How to calculate OEE   - 29 December 2011 - Admin.SiteRead more or comments (0)

OEE is widely being used in manufacturing and service industries for calculating machine ad human efficiency. This is a metric quantity and can be calculated easily. OEE has become an integral part of lean manufacturing principles. In order to initiate any productivity improvement in any organization, it is recommended that OEE should be calculated to make it as a baseline for improvement efforts.

To calculate performance of organization in terms of OEE, we have to divide it into three ....

OEE – Overall Equipment Effectiveness

We have found that there are some misconceptions regarding the calculation of OEE that can lead organizations to Mass Production behaviors.

Introduction In our travels to many companies we always stress the need to develop new measures that lead to lean behaviors. What we mean by a Lean Behavior is that we want everyone in the organization to be measured and rewarded for taking action to reduce process waste. If an organization ....

Overview

Lean principles come from the Japanese manufacturing industry. The term was first coined by John Krafcik in a Fall 1988 article, "Triumph of the Lean Production System," published in the Sloan Management Review and based on his master's thesis at the MIT Sloan School of Management. Krafcik had been a quality engineer in the Toyota–GM NUMMI joint venture in California before coming to MIT for MBA studies. ....



  Lean manufacturing   - 28 December 2011 - Admin.SiteRead more or comments (0)

Lean manufacturing, lean enterprise, or lean production, often simply, "Lean," is a production practice that considers the expenditure of resources for any goal other than the creation of value for the end customer to be wasteful, and thus a target for elimination. Working from the perspective of the customer who consumes a product or service, "value" is defined as any action or process that a customer would be willing to pay for.
Essentially, lean is centered on preserving value with less ....

A brief history of waste reduction thinking

The avoidance and then lateral removal of waste has a long history, and as such this history forms much of the basis of the philosophy now known as "Lean". In fact many of the concepts now seen as key to lean have been discovered and rediscovered over the years by others in their search to reduce waste.

Introduction

TPM is a maintenance process developed for improving productivity by making processes more reliable and less wasteful.TPM is an extension of TQM(Total Quality Management). The objective of TPM is to maintain the plant or equipment in good condition without interfering the daily process. To achieve this objective, preventive and predictive maintenance is required. By following the philosophy of TPM we can minimize the unexpected failure of the equipment.
To implement ....



  Total productive maintenance (TPM)   - 27 December 2011 - Admin.SiteRead more or comments (0)


Total productive maintenance (TPM) originated in Japan in 1971 as a method for improved machine availability through better utilization of maintenance and production resources.
Whereas in most production settings the operator is not viewed as a member of the maintenance team, in TPM the machine operator is trained to perform many of the day–to–day tasks of simple maintenance and fault–finding. Teams are created that include a technical expert (often an engineer or maintenance ....



  Quality   - 27 December 2011 - Admin.SiteRead more or comments (0)


The Quality portion of the OEE Metric represents the Good Units produced as a percentage of the Total Units Started. The Quality Metric is a pure measurement of Process Yield that is designed to exclude the effects of Availability and Performance.
Calculation: Quality = Good Units / Units Started
Example:
A given Work Center produces 230 Good Units during a shift.
242 Units were started in order to produce the 230 Good Units.
Quality = 230 Good Units / 242 Units ....

  how to calculate production efficiency   - 24 January 2011 - Admin.SiteRead more or comments (0)

In order to calculate a production line efficiency you need to obtain data of the number of pieces and the number of hours worked. In addition, you will also need to obtain the piece/min data by conducting a time study at the front and end of line (ensure that they are equal).
Following the collection of this data you can approach it in this manner:

Number of pieces total / number of minutes of production= Avg. pieces per min

Now... take your (Avg pieces per ....

MTTR is an abbreviation that has several different expansions, with greatly differing meanings. It is wise to spell out exactly what is meant by the use of this abbreviation, rather than assuming the reader will know which is being assumed. The M can stand for any of minimum, mean or maximum, and the R can stand for any of recovery, repair, respond, or restore. The most common, mean, is also subject to interpretation, as there are many different ways in which a mean can be calculated.

Mean time between failures (MTBF) is the predicted elapsed time between inherent failures of a system during operation. MTBF can be calculated as the arithmetic mean (average) time between failures of a system. The MTBF is typically part of a model that assumes the failed system is immediately repaired (zero elapsed time), as a part of a renewal process. This is in contrast to the mean time to failure (MTTF), which measures average time between failures with the modeling assumption that the ....
