Abstract:The goal in this case study to make better use of the employees by improving their labour utilisation. The theoretical framework consists of a combination of the Systematic Handling Analysis, the lean principle and the rotational moulding production process. The research involves a literature study to decrease the walking distances and choose the right handling equipment to implement. Calculation of the required time per activity for several workstations during one shift is required for establishing a new task division and thereby improving the labour utilisation. A new division of tasks requires the implementation of the new handling equipment. The best solution for the company consists of visualising the inbetween stock by using roller conveyors and have the finishing activities and the packaging activities grouped into two big workstations.
