Productivity increase in the automotive industry

Industry:
Automotive Industry

Focus:
hydraulic assembly

Challenge:

An increase in volume is urgently needed, as there is an unlimited demand in the hydraulic assembly and the production plant can not produce on target quantity.

Objective:

The actual productivity of the production plant is 16.7 pieces / h. A target productivity of the production plant of 20 pieces / h is to be achieved.

Our Solution:

Six Sigma

Project duration: 
about 6 months

Action:
A Six Sigma project was initiated. The following summarizes the activities of the completed phases:

› Measure:

A systematic analysis provided probable predictors of productivity. These influencing factors were compared with the existing indicators of the area.

› Analysis:

The data of the last year were analyzed and various theories of influencing factors were confirmed or refuted.

› Improve:

With the help of this data collection the 6 significant main influencing factors were evaluated and measures for the improvement of the current state were determined.

› Control:

By setting up a systematic component parts management with Poka Yoke, documentation of the tests, compliance with the optimization measures is supported. The recording and monitoring of the key figures takes place daily.

Results:

Increase in productivity from 16.7 to 18.3 pieces / hour and thus increase the output by 600 pieces / day

Achieved benefit: € 157,000 per year through increased productivity and an additional € 68,000 per year through reduction of the fixed cost share
