SME Member workshop: Increase productivity through 'Design for assembly'

Tuesday 27 November / 02:00PM

IfM has developed a proven approach to improving product design to make production line assembly as easy as possible – and hence dramatically increase the number of units you can make and the speed with which you can make them. In this short session we introduce the principles of design for assembly. We will take apart a product and put it back together so that you can test the principles. We will also cover the approach observing your assembly line in action, looking at all the processes involved and how long each one takes, the rate at which products come of the assembly line and how much total work has gone into each product. We will use case studies to illustrate potential findings.
