Methods-Time Measurement (MTM)
The methods-time measurement (MTM) is used at SAS to plan assembly and logistics processes. This determines the value creation in the work sequences taking into account ergonomic aspects, and an assembly time is determined in this manner. This serves as a basis for the harmonic balancing of all part processes in the value creation chain. Non-value-creating parts are identified by this method and optimised in the process chain. Automation potentials continue to be identified and included in the process costs calculation.
The production layout contains all major planning data from assembly and logistics. Here, a balance between the assembly line, the necessary material flows and storage concepts is being created in new creative collaboration by the specialist areas. Costs and efficiency of the future production facility are simulated in this way and optimised. Based on the guiding principles of Industry 4.0 and the use of new technologies we can offer our customers new concepts and implement them. Specifically, these are to be found in the automation of screw and conveyor technology and also storage and stock removal.
The aim of the process FMEA is to expose possible weak spots in the production process. The approach of a process FMEA is conceivably simple: the overall process is divided into individual part processes/work steps. During this, the process contents on the one hand and the product features on the other in the respective process steps are described in detail. After this, potential errors are derived from the process contents and instructions are given about the possible causes of error from this list: humans, machines, material, environment, method). The consequences of errors which arise from this can thus be more easily described and potential risks assessed. The optimisation measures are derived from the resulting risk matrix.
