Abstract:
Based on the principles of the renown Toyota Production System, a new planning approach has been applied to a product development project at Mercedes-Benz do Brasil, Sao Paulo. The key elements are Master Process Sheets, which document assembly operations as agreed standard operations and hence assure continuously high, repeatable quality. Master Process Sheets visualize the assembly operations using explosion drawings and provide a much higher degree of understanding and information accessibility to production workers compared to earlier main-frame based process planning systems.
