Waste Reduction by Lean Manufacturing Using Vsm Methodology for Wilo Range Pumps (Published)

Cycle time is the time required to deliver a product or service to a customer. Long cycle-times not only prevent prompt delivery of products/service to your customer, but also increase costs. One of the best ways to cut down on your cycle-time is to conduct activities in parallel and eliminate unnecessary waste time as demonstrated on the next slide. Broadly speaking, and organization competes on the basis of quality, cost, flexibility and time. This factor is complementary, even symbiotic. Today’s discriminating customer demands world class quality at a competitive price. When all the leading companies in an industry achieve a high-level quality, a focus on quality alone cannot keep a company competitive. Quality then becomes, expected factor, which must be complimented by a faster response time and flexibility. In increasingly, cost and quality are viewed as residuals or outcomes of competing on the basis of time end flexibility. In business, time is not infinite and limitless competing on the basis time is defined to include the following: using time as strategic weapon identify market opportunity responding to that opportunity before competitors do and eliminating non-value-added activities.

Wilo was required to improve its performance and production efficiency but there were a lot of problems in order to fulfil of process marked by both infective and effective work. In this research lean manufacture aim to identify and eliminate the waste so, that the company could improve its performance this concept of lean manufacturing concept could improve the responsiveness through waste reduction continues improvement and cost reduction in order to identify and eliminate waste value stream mapping, time study, questionnaire, kaizen method etc are used. This method will help to reduce the waste in production.
