Schaefer Tray System Fault Reduction
Phat Phung, Celestino Gonzalez, William Brigham
May, 2012 -
+ Utilized Green Belt LEAN DMAIC methodology to improve system efficiency by 30%.
+ Define: Tray system experiences reoccurring stoppages, which negatively effect overall production.
+ Measure: Given SQL database & Schaefer WMS, I create a master spreadsheet to log number of faults in the system.
+ Analysis: The tracking spreadsheet evaluated previous shift & give an indication on where and when the system generate the most fault. Utilizing a customize probability calculation to calculate frequency, it allow user to know the possibility on where and when the problem originate.
+ Improve: I ended up creating a change order impacting the software and physical system. A systematic change on software is activate when sensor goes beyond threshold (errors and bugs). An automated guide rail to physically push off the defective items back to the original position.
