Abstract [en]

The company is currently in a stage of improvement and has therefore taken the help of students at School of Engineering, Jonkoping University. The current production is batch, production layout is fixed. A bottleneck is created after the first station which leads to large efficiency loss.  

The meaning of this report was to provide a layout suggestion with balanced workstations to a new production line. The conditions were that the production line would be one-way, driven by customers order and meet a demand of 40 products per week.  

In order to achieve a result, different methods and tools have been used, these have been time studies, video recording, case studies and interviews with assemblers and supervisor. Theoretical background has been helpful for the choice of methods and work implementation.  

The result of this work was a series of solutions based on the company’s strategy and the methods that has been used. Solution A uses three stations with the idea to create a suction through the flow and smooth line balancing. Solution B also had three stations with the basic concept to be able to adjust the number of stations. The number of stations can be selected when the demand change between two, three or six stations. The last Solution C meaning was to create a production line where the operations of the same character had their own place. This solution has five stations, creating a large efficiency loss.  

The conclusion is that Layout proposal B is best for the company. This is because it is the most flexible proposal when it is possible to adapt to a demand from 20- 100 products /week. Proposal for methods development and opportunities for improvement in production can be found in the conclusion and discussion.
