Process Types (in order of decreasing volume) • Continuous Flow • Production Line • Batch (High Volume) • Batch (Low Volume) • Job Shop • Project Some Examples of Batch Manufacturing • Numerical control (NC) machines – Automated processing of entire batch – Machining center - multiple NC machines • Flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) – Dedicated to families of parts – NC and automated handling • Group technology – Similar in concept to FMS, but not as much automation Mixing Together the Process Types ... Spindles Arms and Legs BATCH for fabricating parts ... ASSEMBLY LINE for putting together final product Seats Comparing Process Types...

What is “Customization”? An operations-centric view: “Customization occurs when a customer’s unique requirements directly affect the timing and nature of operations and supply chain activities” Make-to-Order Windows Off-line Activities On-Line Activities • • • • • • • • Design Buy Materials Fabricate parts Assemble • Ship windows Lead times? Customizability? Price? What type of manufacturing? • Sell windows ETO MTO DESIGN Definitions: SOURCING MATERIALS ATO FABRICATION MTS ASSEMBLY/ FINISHING DISTRIBUTION Customization Point Model I ETO – engineer to order MTO – make to order ATO – assemble-to-order MTS – make to stock Upstream: before the customization point, “off-line” activities Downstream: after the customization point, “on-line” activities Customization Point Model II Manufacturing Systems Design Performance objectives Technology Investment Organization structure Job differentiation Integration Discretion Upstream Efficiency Productivity, consistency Mechanistic High Formal Low Downstream Responsivenes s Flexibility Organic Low Informal High Difficulty versus Customization MANUFACTURING VIEW LOWER DIFFICULTY HIGHER CUSTOMIZATION HIGHER DIFFICULTY BASEBALL CAP WITH SCHOOL NAME ON IT (MTO) BASEBALL CAP WITH ARKANSAS RAZORBACKS LOGO AND SCHOOL COLORS ON IT (ETO) PLAIN BASEBALL CAP (MTS) PLAIN BASEBALL CAP IN DIFFERENT COLORS (ATO) MARKETING VIEW LOWER CUSTOMIZATION Services . . . • • • • • Process and “product” are inseparable Marketing and sales often tightly integrated Customer often part of the process Performance metrics can be harder to define Nevertheless: – Focus and process choices / trade-offs still apply Degree of Customer Contact Low Contact • “off-line” • Can locate for efficiency • Can smooth out the workload Check clearing, mail sorting High Contact • “on-line” • Can locate for easy access • Flexibility to respond to customers • Harder to manage Hospitals, food service Classifying Services “Front Room” versus “Back Room” Front room – what the customer can see Back room – what the customer does not see Managed for flexibility and customer service Managed for efficiency and Productivity Customer lobbies, bank teller, receptionist Package sorting, car repair, blood test analysis, accounting department Designing Services • Selecting a service focus – Like manufacturing processes, different services have strengths and weaknesses • Key is to design a service process that meets the needs of targeted customers • The “service package” A Cubical Model of Services (Three Dimensions) Nature of the Service Package Primarily Physical Activities (Airline, trucking firm) Primarily Intangible Activities (Law firm, software developer) Degree of Customization Lower Customization (Quick-change oil shop) Higher Customization (Full-service car repair shop) Degree of Customer Contact Lower Contact (Mail sorting) Higher Contact (Physical therapist) Community Hospital PHYSICAL Public Hospital SERVICE PACKAGE HIGH CONTACT INTANGIBLE LOW HIGH CUSTOMIZATION LOW Birthing Center PHYSICAL Public Hospital SERVICE PACKAGE HIGH CONTACT INTANGIBLE LOW HIGH CUSTOMIZATION LOW Layout Decision Models • Product-based layout – Usually best for a line operation – Cycle time a primary measure • Functional layout – Usually best for a job shop – Distance between steps a measure • Cellular layout – Usually best for batch processes Product-Based Layout Line Balancing • Improve ‘Takt’ time: – – – – Reduce idle time Reduce setup time Reduce unnecessary movement Identify ‘bottlenecks’ available production time Takt time = required output rate Functional Layout A.
