The main purpose of this phase is to collect data about the current processes and baselining it to see how good the process is doing. It focuses on validating the current data collection methods and processes. This phase helps in understanding the current performance of the processes and also to quantify the problem. 4.2.1 Key Performance Indicators A key performance indicator (KPI) is used to measure the performance or success of an organisation or of a particular activity in which it measures. It is necessary to develop these metrics to evaluate an organisations success to attain key business objectives. KPIs should be developed based on the SMART criteria. It means that the KPI must have a Specific purpose for the activity or the process.…show more content…
The total number of quality failures for the test step 040 for the first five months of this year has been 2569 parts. In which, defects due to measurement error are 1516. According to the recorded data, 59% of the rejected parts are good, they are recorded as failed parts because of the measurement error. Since there are many measurement errors, KPI regarding the rejected parts must be established. The maintenance performance must also be measured through KPI’s, for which breakdown time of critical machines must be measured along with the availability of critical equipment. The KPIs for this project are selected based upon the objectives of this thesis. The effectiveness of the maintenance process and the quality of the products produced must be measured to reflect the productivity of the line. Therefore, data relating to performance improvement are collected and measured. The three selected KPIs are explained…show more content…
Each failure is handwritten by the line controller in the log book. Logbook contains information on stoppages or failure machine, duration of stoppage, date and time of the event, and the name of the line controller. The breakdown reasons are written in the OEE sheet upon specific number given to the breakdowns as shown in Table 3. Since the line controller enters the information into the log book, small stoppages below 5 minutes are generally not documented. This data is verified by the production leader and updated into the OEE calculation sheets in Excel. Since minor stoppages are not recorded, the stoppage duration mentioned in OEE sheet must be less than the actual stoppage time. This thesis uses the same data since it is difficult to record short durations without automated recording systems. The information about the failure station and problematic areas involved in it are mentioned in OEE sheet, which allows us to identify and group failures based upon their type. This data was essential to identify the bottleneck processes, which are further evaluated in Analyse
