Standardization of the process flow at the wash and weigh station will allow for three advantages to the previous process. One would allow you to know if the product prevents a problem two weeks earlier, the second is eliminating the need to handle the product an additional time, and the third is to have weigh data and height data entered into the database in real time. The end result would be to know that the product passes all the required specifications before being released to pack in the final assembly, eliminating the opportunity for questionable product to go to the customer.
Long process time between manufacturing of cells to the final release of cells. Fractured system did not provide the needed timely feedback to manufacturing line. After stream lining the process the time frame for feed back of finding under weight cells or short cells was decreased to 7 days.
Comparing previous method to proposed method Flow Chart before standardization
Charts below show display the possible failures with current process
Process flow is not utilizing the equipment or minimizing the amount of handling If you move equipment around correctly process will flow better.
Process flow change Decisions made sooner
Chart shows improvement with new process flow of wash and weigh area Limiting the amount of time information is fed to the subassembly line
