This film looks at the key systems used in a factory. It focuses on two case studies: the Glaxo Smith Kline toothpaste factory and plastic injection moulding company, Time RPS. How do they compare?
TYPES OF PRODUCTION:
GSK is an example of continuous flow production: they make a million tubes of toothpaste a day. Time RPS mostly does lower volume, batch production. The film follows one product from design stage to final production, in the process explaining how computer-aided design feeds through to computer-aided manufacture.
Key to production is ordering the right amounts of raw materials to fulfil orders. At the toothpaste factory this is achieved by two main systems: materials requirement planning and scheduling. Quality is an essential factor in both factories, which is underpinned by quality systems and the quality standard, ISO 9000.
What work do robots do? How are they controlled and what are the benefits? We use examples from both factories. Cleanliness and efficiency inside the factory is one thing - but what about the pollution caused by transporting things to and from the factory?
