Abstract:A new and innovative product was invented at Philips. The processes and production line to mass-produce the product was being designed using the APQP framework. The research of this thesis aims to optimize the design of this brand new production line. Under guidance from lean six sigma green belts DfSS is applied to find the best combination of buffers in between machines and number of transport carriers. Then the bottleneck of the production line is identified and improved. To get to this optimal design Discrete Event Simulation is used.
