Abstract:VDL-ETG Suzhou was taken over from Philips in 2006. It was and still is a manufacturer of semi-finished goods. Nowadays the factory has around 300 employers and several 100 machines. These machines were bad maintained, and thus needed an up-date. This is done by one of my predecessors by introducing a repair plan, Of course the machines also need a good maintenance plan. This was done by another predecessor by introducing the first line maintenance and the second line maintenance. This report will elaborate upon those projects and introduce new ones. As mentioned above, the machine needed an up-date, while others are deemed unnecessary nowadays. That is the reason for the company to hand me the project to examine whether the machines are still being used and are still necessarily. Followed is advice on which machine can be disposed. Of course it is not necessarily to get an intern over for just this purpose. So that’s why a few semi-automatic programs are written to monitor the factory easier. A program to report broken down machines with the help of Excel and VBA/VB6.0 is written. This program is used nowadays to let operators or supervisors report machines to the department which is in charge of the maintenance/repair. This program allows machines to be reported and notified. The last data can be filled in by the department in charge of the maintenance. Secondly a program is written to determine whether the planned maintenance, done by one of my predecessors, is planned correctly. This program can be used to determine which machine can be put up for maintenance in which week. The main reason behind these programs is to calculate the utilization level and efficiency per machine. This is done with the help of so called OEE and TEEP calculations, which will be elaborated upon later in the theory of this report.
