|Title: ||Optimizing Factory Layout for Mobile Luminer Manufacturer|
|Authors: ||Anker, Rasmus|
Luminell began as an idea and a dedication to improve an old outdated sector, which further on resulted in a startup. Today Luminell is a small-sized company with 12 employees that manufactures and sells various luminary solutions, primarily in the marine sector. Luminell's department in Halmstad specializes in mobile luminaires such as searchlights for a variety of vessels, e.g. transporting ships, rescue vessels and yachts.
Now, Luminell calls for an optimized work plan that reduces waste and non-value-adding activities in the everyday assembly work. Through a new work strategy, it is also possible to achieve a better control at material and components, which today lacks systematization. This problem creates a vicious cycle, where missing materials generate confusion in the production plan, and lead to overproduction. As a result of improving mentioned problem areas, increased production efficiency is expected.
This report presents the workflow and the different methodologies that have led to a new production system with associated production layout.
An extensive mapping of the current production system and work routines was crucial for being able to approach the problems in a reliable way. This has partly been done by us practically working with the company's products, data gathering, but also through many conversations with the company's employees. All this was put together in an IDEF-0, which constituted a base during the project. By producing three different concepts of production systems, a discussion ground was created to work further with. With these concepts as a basis, we collectively with the company came to an idea for a future scenario which was further worked on.
With the help of 3D scanning, a virtual environment could be made, where a simulation model furthering was created. In this simulation model the production system was built, with focus on developing a layout that was practically applicable in the facility premises.
This simulation model was then presented to the company and constituted a good decision-making basis for conversion. Today, several measures have already been made in order to shift into the new production system.|
