To achieve this, the company developed a cost-effective process that aims at minimizing the waste and maximizing the utilization capacity. • Layout design and strategy- this factor has the capacity to influence manufacturing as well as service process design. To deal with this, Toyota’s layout design in manufacturing plants focuses mainly on the execution of principles of lean manufacturing. • Location strategy-the company aims to cover the global market, but it was leading to increased cost of manufacturing. The company took a strategic decision to develop manufacturing units at a local level and to enhance the company’s production at the global level.
Lean manufacturing methods and improvements have been used widely in manufacturing systems. The aim of this study is to make lean manufacturing techniques of the applicability in the company, the mapping of the flow of all processes, the determination of wastes (idle times, waiting times, etc.) and the proposals for reducing these wastes by using the Value Stream Mapping and if necessary Line Balancing techniques. This work was carried out at Kale Kilit-Çerkezköy production factory. The value flow mapping technique will be used to determine what step in production is needed.
Although quality cost has been applied within a large number of companies as an in- house measurement, it is crucial to extend quality cost as an external measure and integrate traditional manufacturing costs and distribution costs into supply chain modeling [Castillo-Villar et al., 2012a; Srivastava, 2008]. Quality cost across a supply chain is the sum of the costs incurred across a supply chain in preventing poor quality of product and/or service to deliver to final consumer, the costs incurred to ensure and evaluate that the quality requirements are being met, and any other costs incurred as a result of poor quality [Srivastava, 2008]. Some studies investigated the relation between quality cost and supply chain management, such as Srivastava (2008) which gave the first step towards estimating quality cost in a supply chain. They estimated quality costs in monetary terms, according to P-A-F model and used the standard DMAIC (Define–Measure–Analyze–Improve–Control) methodology for analysis of selected third-party contract manufacturing sites of a pharmaceutical company. Ramudhin et al.
The advantages of this technique in mass production are cost reduction and low reaction time to changes. Reconfigurable machining systems (RMS) allow adaptation to MC modular architectures. A reconfigurable manufacturing system (RMS) is one designed at the outset for rapid change in its structure, as well as its hardware and software components, in order to quickly adjust its production capacity and functionality within a part family in response to sudden market changes or intrinsic system change . Modularity helps to characterize RMS. The three types of modular architecture discussed in the article are the
This approach applies through entire process of manufacturing and developing a product- right from the initial concept to manufacturing and production through engineering design. These methods are used to specify feature details and dimensions of a product. Taguchi’s quality loss function: Taguchi’s quality loss function measures quality, it is a continuous function defined in terms of deviation of the design parameter from the target value or ideal value. It represents a paradigm shift to the way which manufacturers consider whether the product is of appropriate quality or not. It is very different from the traditional approach which used step function to ensure that performance lies within the upper specification limit and lower specification
Within this process it is important that the company hire people are well trained who are qualified for the job rather than getting the job; this will facilitates the delivery of quality services. (The Marketing Mix, 2015) explained “internal” competitive advantage a business can have over other competitors which can inherently affect a business’s position in the marketplace. In addition market segmentation is important as well; it basically narrows down the type of consumers that the company wants to attract to the brand. This can range from age groups, social status, geographic location etc. Grace Kennedy intends to carry out segmentation more effectively by subdividing the segments into smaller units so that the resources will be enough to effectively penetrate the right target groups.
The purpose of Supply Chain Segmentation for a company is to use and develop different supply chain management to able fulfill different level need in more efficient and effective ways. Nowadays, more and more international business is apply Supply Chain Segmentation strategy to take competitive advantage in this competitive market and this is the unique and compulsory for them to fulfill their huge customers and distribution channels. So, the single supply chain will be often lost their competitive advantage and very hard to live long in this competitive market place. The most important is, what is the reason for a company to apply the Supply Chain Segmentation and apply the ways to Supply Chain Segmentation is the most important question and issues for a company to pay high attention. Moreover, the botto-line benefits is need to set up by a company and what actions, steps and technologies need to be apply and begin for a company?
Paradoxically, it is a priority for more CFOs and CEOs today to target these costs for important savings. Today more companies realize that continuous costs cutting and costs avoidance through process improvement and visibility is critical for long term sustainability and
The more competitive rivalry there is, the worse it is for existing companies within the industry. Competitive advantage is the last step of analysis of new market entry by several authors. The origin of competitive advantage is superior value creation by Kuada and Sorensen (2000) where the unique abilities of an organisation come from its resources and capabilities. In order to gain competitive advantage, companies need to chase strategies that are already built on the existing resources and capabilities of an organisation, and they need to define strategies that built additional resources and capabilities. Specific knowledge and information are important for the company in the process of becoming international business.
In this sense, it is emphasized that an effective innovation management demands a better understanding of the organizational structures and managerial behaviors that best fit the business contingencies (Salerno et al., 2015; Tidd et al., 2009). This reinforces the idea that regular performing of radical innovation is more strongly linked to the organizational arrangements set than to the fundamental logic that guides how activities and/or decisions are
