A Model For Assessing and Evaluating Production Process Effectiveness When Applying Lean Production -A Case Study
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Measurement is an important process for companies to evaluate their production systems. The purpose of this study is to create a model which will help to companies if they want to measure effectiveness of the production processes when applying lean production. The model consists of twelve steps and considers strategies that has effects on production processes in different perspectives. In order to examine these perspectives systematically, balanced scorecard was used as a tool. Thanks to balanced scorecard measures that is used to reach aim of the model were chosen. In the model pilot processes were offered to implement new production strategy. After measuring effectiveness of two situation of process -before and after implementation- comparison was made with the use of radar chart tool. The result of the model is balanced measurement system and determining effectiveness of the production process when applying a production strategy. The model has been implemented in a manufacturing company, Melam that is implementing lean production. At the end of the case study lean measures were identified and production process effectiveness was determined. According to determination further decisions were given by decision makers. Implementations were not found enough and thanks to the model, applying an unsuccessful implementation was prevented.
