In a make-to-order production with seasonal demand fluctuations
In the case at hand, a new production line was to be added at a factory for shading systems, requiring an annex on a neighbouring plot of land. The whitepaper illustrates how value stream mapping was used to reveal the weak points in the existing production flows, and how improvement opportunities were developed in a value stream design workshop.
The resulting layout for a holistic production system was subsequently implemented at the new site. Ensuing synergy effects have led to reduced handling and transport costs and significantly shorter throughput times.
A building expansion is required to meet increasing demand in a make-to-order production system with strong seasonal fluctuations. How can this be planned in a systematic and sustainable way?
Successful production thrives on efficient processes. Being future-proof is the key success factor.
