Abstract

At present, situation of manufacturing industry has more competitive, and affected from supporting the customer requirements in the market with limited resources such as cost and production time. The objective of this research was decreased machine setup time by avg. from 96 min./time, so the target was 50 min./time. From operations analysis by using Flow process chart and using SMED technique to convert Internal setup to be External setup. Then, improved operations by using ECRS technique. Furthermore, the research team has created the standardization by Work instruction. The result after improve was decreased machine setup time by avg. from 96 min./time to be 46 min./time. It was better that the target as 50 min./time. Machine utilization was increased from 84.76% to be 92.70%. Manpower utilization was improved also. Finally, increased production rate from 37,380 pcs./day to be 40,880 pcs./day. They have some investment to order the equipment to support this work, and they calculated BE. was only 814 pcs.

Keywords: Increasing Efficiency, Break Even Point, Single Minute Exchange of Die, Work Instruction.
