Nov 21, 2011· Since process industries are known for their large tanks and units which cannot easily be distinguished, the Value Stream Mapping tool (VSM) can provide insight in the production process. Three components can be described within VSM: the material flow, the information flow and the time line.
We decided from the beginning that Deutsche Process would be built upon a foundation of three core principles: industry leading technology, fair pricing, and the highest level of customer service. We have not wavered from these promises which has allowed us to become the value leader in sanitary process equipment.
However the three types of waste waiting, defects and over processing do exist in process manufacturing and are fertile ground for the application of lean and Six Sigma methodologies. For instance, product changeovers, which in process manufacturing can sometimes take 18 hours or more, are an example of waiting waste.
The eight character alpha numeric sequence for each PIP Practice contains identification for the engineering discipline, the intended audience and the PIP sequential numbering system. The first two characters identify the Function Team or technology area; for example, "CV" for civil, "PC" for process control.
studies identified that WIP (work in process) in USA plants was 1000 times greater than that of Japanese plants. Application of such principles must, however, be backed by a clear strategic plan and continuous innovation in both product and process 7. LM tries to integrate the supplier with the customer
principles on process industries. This thesis does not include only the advantages of LM, instead gives the reader an extensive research literature based analysis with an indication as to what factors help or obstruct the successful implementation of lean manufacturing on process industries.
Unless an engineer is directly involved in manufacturing, he or she may only be slightly familiar with lean principles. Long considered a way to greatly improve manufacturing efficiency, lean can be applied to any business or production process, in any industry

Feb 25, 2002· TRIZ in the process industry. Causes of a problem in a process cannot easily be pinpointed. The problems can be tracked down to causes in areas like raw materials, chemistry, control loops etc. In the article it will be described how TRIZ can be a success when applied to typical problems of the process industry.
The research described in this article has set out to determine the extent to which lean thinking is being adopted as a manufacturing philosophy by process industries. It concerns the application and examination of key lean manufacturing principles, namely, the alignment of production with demand, the elimination of waste, the integration of suppliers (IS) and the creative involvement of the
