Intermediate storage system optimization is an essential aspect which this report tends to look
upon and putting effort on improving operating efficiency then reducing the capital cost of
batch/ semi-continuous or flow production process by looking at the extent of estimating the
figures of boxes that are made to be in the intermediate storage system through evaluations.
Additionally, intermediate storage can reduce the effects of process parameter variations, such
as recipe inaccuracies and operator errors, in which process operations are particularly visible.
In a channel of operations, where there are many amount of shift that are inevitable to pass
through in order to complete production process to get a finished product. Hence, longer
operating horizon, process variations must include a measurable parameter, either shorter or
longer to avoid failure of meeting product specification and limitation of meeting end users
specification. Intermediate storage system as a back-up function in case of some sudden
failure within the production line
In this thesis, it is notable to make an amendment, as a way of knowing the accuracy of boxes
of bearing work-piece that will be maintaining a certain intermediate storage system to feed
the next shift of workstation in a continuous process with accurate or known estimated
number of work-piece in a role, until the final product is been made.
Hence, in this research, there are many theory that were adopted to give a clear view of what
will be obtainable in the whole research both in empirical finding to have a definite result.
To achieve the above goal this thesis followed a steps to fulfil its objective. Steps 1 and 2
were to know the strategic plans as well as operating methods through theory also, to know
the production line balancing to have a view of time measured through the theory. Step 3 and
4 adoptions of theory and empirical finding to calculate, productivity through the source of
cycle time, as well as facility plan and to give analysis of intermediate storage system, in
optimization of production line to make a work flow achievable at the end, to meet the
