Abstract

Manufacturing system is one of the most important parts in any organization as it produces the output of the company which will generate the profit. It consists partly of the production line which plays the role as the centre of production to create the end product which could be half finished or the full product. It is a big problem for the company to determine which is the better arrangement and combination of the tools or machines available in this area of the organization as different combination will greatly impact the productivity of the production line together with the profit of the company. This research intend to analyze a new production line in a metal stamping company based on the complain from the company and try to explore the better layout or arrangement in the production line in reflect to the complained problem and constrain of the provided of accept the defect and repair inspection policy. The production line is first being analyzed in response to complain through computer simulation. After the problem had been identified, the researcher tried different alternatives in the attempt to seek for the better layout or arrangement in the production line. The effect of different inspection station allocation layout is then being evaluated in term of the production time. The research has resulted in the finding of the cause for the long production time in the factory which is the long inspection steps which consumed much of the production time. After a few alternatives have been explored in allocating the inspection station, it is obvious that the current approach of the production line is the better one. Even by reducing the number of inspection station, interesting enough, the production time does not seem to decrease but yet increased. This finding contradicts the normal thought of fewer stations means shorter time. This finding could be the founding basic in the future research regarding the allocation of the inspection station following certain provided policy. This is also very helpful in real life practice in company as to help them improve their production time. As for the time being, there is yet a research addressing this issue pertaining the given inspection policy.
