Abstract:This report consist of two parts. Part 1 is performed in Gestamp Servicios in Madrid with the subject: ‘creation of a global arc welding standard’. This standard serves the purpose of ensuring the same level of quality globally. This part is not completed and is ended after reading the current materials and literature on both visual inspection and lean learning. The change of assignment and location that occurred has two reasons. First of all, the request from my side for a more technical and practical assignment. The second reason was me having difficulties with adapting to the appropriate working culture. More on this part can be found in the appendices. Part 2 is performed in the Gestamp Technology institute with the goal of investigating the possibilities for the implementation of lean and its methods. After identifying the current situation and the existing wastes, three tools of lean are implemented with the goal of reducing the identified wastes. An inventory database (inventory management) is constructed, 5S is implemented in an area with 18 workbenches and students and teachers are trained in the basics of lean manufacturing.
