Abstract [en]

Three different manufacturing lines are chosen to be investigated and different solutions are suggested which are all beneficial for the company. All three lines are considered from the Lean manufacturing point of view. The most common failures in the factory are caused by the system called Poka-Yoke. The three chosen line are being investigated from this aspect of view as well and different solutions are given in this project. The existing systems at these lines are compared to the FPS, which finds its roots back in Lean Production. The FPS is described in this project in a specific chapter. The readers can also find the history behind the FPS and Lean production and the comparison between the FPS and Toyota Production System in this project. The authors have also gone through different construction arrangement by the side of these three lines and have come up with some solutions from the Lean manufacturing point of view in order to make the VCT manufacturing one step closer to the FPS. One can claim that the main goal of this project is to show the connection between the FPS and Volvo manufacturing system and showing the fact that the whole concept behind the FPS is nothing but the Lean Production.
