An FMEA on Pilot Implementation of Kitting Concept in a Manufacturing Unit
Kitting concept can defined as providing all the major components from logistic area to the point of use through internal milk run in directly usable condition. It is implemented to reduce the space in shop reduction in inventory, to obtain material flow driven production integrated with Hei-junka based on production levelling. This will ensure there is no storage of major components at shop in super markets. Backlog management will also be robust, current day backlog will be produced very next day morning.
The manufacturing unit is implementing the kitting concept for the first time and the trial run is analysed using FMEA (Failure Mode Effect Analysis) and the effectiveness of the kitting concept is measured based on the key performance indicators.
