This document contains the project titled: An Efficient Manufacturing System.
InvestorData CC was started in 1999. The company is very technologically sound and
strives to maintain its competitive edge within the industry at all times. A new
opportunity had been seen, this opportunity related to a new and innovative ‘on-off’
switch that is used to operate day/night lights.
Engaging in this project provided the opportunity to combine theory and creative
problem solving techniques to:
• Investigate the conceptualization of the current production system
• Search for alternative production procedures and techniques
• Develop and analyze the chosen production techniques through time studies.
• Validate the time standards using quality control charts
The manufacturing process was producing manufactured units on small scale. The
owner Mr. Jenkins wished to expand the venture and required a new manufacturing
system to be developed in the most optimal way to ensure that the market demand and
volume could be met and thus increase the throughput of product and increase the
total amount of products manufactured.
