TECHNIQUES FOR CREATING CELLS (1) Operator-Machine or Gantt Charts (Covered in “Business Process Analysis Methods Presentation; Review the Operator Machine Charts for Gourmet Coffee Process, Hamburger Assembly Process). Procedure : 1. Current State: For the current process (current process configuration and current resource levels), observe the interaction between product/customer order and the resources through the process steps. Find the cycle time to process an entire order. 2. Future State: Rethink the process configuration with allowing for possibility of making steps faster, removing steps, and simultaneous parallel processing of steps. Develop the revised (hopefully shorter) cycle time scenarios using either the current level of resources or lower level of resources. Example Project: Johnson & Johnson Lab Testing Machines Cell Cycle Time Improvement (2) Balanced Assembly Configuration Procedure Covered here in this handout. (See next page on).

USING ASSEMBLY LINE CONFIGURATION FOR CONTINUOUS FLOW PROCESSING CELLS OBJECTIVE To develop a balanced assembly process configuration. To create a line that will attain desired production (i.e., tack time) with minimum workstations so that utilization of workers at these stations is balanced across the line. BENEFITS 1. Derivation of efficient line configuration.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
