Abstract:The aim of the research is to solve problems related to the batch handling of the container-series line at Easy Sanitary Solutions (ESS) and, with that, increase the production capacity (in terms of output) of this line. There are three problems solved during the research: (1) there is no use of optimal batch sizes that reduce cycle times, (2) there is no insight in quality issues and (3) there are too many quality issues encountered at the assembly line. Using two created tools, insight in cycle times and quality issues have been created. The batch sizes that reduce cycle times have been identified by investigating the pattern between cycle times and batch sizes and combine this with batch sizes optimal for other factors (parts) of the company. This way, batch sizes optimal for the assembly line and optimal for other parts of the company have been identified. Lastly, solutions have been identified to encounter fewer quality issues at the line and worked out in an implementation plan.
