Abstract

The performance of every assembly line depends on the availability of a large number of components which have to be supplied to the line on the right time, to the right place and in the right quantity. If a company doesn´t have a well-constructed material feeding system, it will not achieve good operative results. Daimler Buses Mexico works on the assembly of Mercedes-Benz Buses´ chassis. In 2017, 77% of the total production resulted at the end of the line with missing parts. That resulted on a significant amount of money and time invested in rework.
This project was based on Lean Logistics and PDCA Cycle Methodology. To impact in the greater level possible the problem here stated, the kitting concept was redefined and different proposals involving the kitting method were established. Different IT solutions in the material supply process itself and in a material control system were also an important contribution. Besides a discrete-event simulation to gain insights about the needed resources was developed.
With the described solutions and some others, the number of entities with missing parts were reduced, non-value activities were eliminated and line side storage space was reduced.
