Abstract

The mixed-model assembly line (MMAL) is a type of assembly line in which a variety of product models are assembled on the same line. The use of highly variant parts on the assembly line need to be considered carefully to enable satisfactory material flow control and allow for smooth production. To increase the quality of parts supply and parts assembly in MMAL, Toyota has introduced an innovation system known as Set Parts Supply (SPS). In this paper, we investigate the parts supply issues in SPS implementation using a case study in the automotive industry. The linkage of parts supply strategies with Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is introduced to improve the SPS implementation which are (i) synchronized parts supply, (ii) e-kanban system and (iii) Synchronized Supply Sheet. From the research findings, the integration with MES has contributed to the Just In Time in parts supply at the supermarket area and assembly line.
