Training ensures high quality of scalable labour resources

When the number of goods produced increases at our customer’s site, it is necessary to quickly increase the number of employees to meet the newly changed production requirements. In such a case, also the one-piece flow of production needs to be altered, in order to keep the level of unfinished products in minimum.

one-piece flow

Increasing operating efficiency with synchronized continuous flow

With the newly organised one-piece flow logistics, the materials are gathered to picking train wagons and the quantities of the materials have been synchronised with the set takt time of the assembly line. All of the quantities and delivery times in each wagon are known which assists the logistics employees in knowing what the assembly line employees need at different times and subsequently reduce the need to go back and forth to collect materials. Changing the logistics process has also resulted in increasing the number of the picked materials; before, the materials that were directly taken to the assembly line with a forklift truck are now also loaded to the picking train wagons with the rest of the materials, consequently reducing the forklift truck traffic inside the assembly hall.
