Lean Tools Report Writing- Australian Institute of Engineering Assignment

For task you are required to follow verbal or written instructions to determine task requirements. The Written Project is to be completed as part of your assessment for this unit.A timeframe will be set as to when the Written Project is to be completed and handed back to the Trainer for assessment. The observation will be recorded using the Checklist provided for each task.

Scenario: Lean work shop project A new owner is buying a small factory which currently produces ‘small batch’ cars (unique to customer needs). You wish to produce racing vehides similar but smaller version of a Formula 1.
You want to introduce better up to date equipment and machinery to increase to the equivalent of twice the current capability and to world “Benchmark” best practice.

**This is to happen over a period d 2years with an input of $2 million dollars over the duration.
1. The current business has machines and systems you require but is running at a loss, so the owner is selling the entire factory, machinery and stock with an office connected. 2. There are 15 workers in the field of vehicle manufacturing who know the machinery within the workshop (Both production and process machinery) no it would be useful to keep them. 3. Previously (A decade prior) the factory was profitable, but more competitive opposition companies are producing cheaper alternatives. 4. The current workers also believe they can call the shots and don’t appreciate a new owner telling them how to run their work place. 5. Machinery is also becoming inaccurate due to ware and neglect hence quality has meant that 15 % of vehides completed requires unscheduled maintenance within the warranty period. (2% is world standard) which has greatly affected the bottom line of the company.
