Abstract

The automotive manufacturers are facing a challenge in producing variety of products to fulfill the customer demand. A large number of different types of parts forces manufacturers to improve the method of supplying parts on the assembly line. This paper presented an innovation system of supplying parts called Set Parts Supply (SPS) which has been implemented in a mixed-model assembly line. The basic idea of SPS is the process of selection parts and assemble parts are done by different operator at different area. This research is concentrated on the activities in SPS implementation and the design consideration for the equipment through a case based approach. After the implementation, it can be ascertained that the inventory has been reduced, the reduction of waste can be achieved and the shop floor are well-organized.
