Implementing of a Pilot Line of Clothing Industry under the Philosophy Lean Manufacturing

Flores A., Aguilar J. A., and Choque R. H.
Abstract—This document shows the results of the implementation of a pilot line of clothing modular where operators work standing, under the guideline of Lean Manufacturing (LM) which arises as claim to increase the productive capacity of small and medium-sized enterprises of the clothing sector in the city of Arequipa in Peru. The objective is to analyze the variations of efficiency in the change of a system of conventional production to one modular under LM. The research is based: 1) Field study with the collection of data from a conventional line as sequence of operations, and indexes of efficiencies for its subsequent analysis and proposal for improvement in a modular line of foot. 2) Implement production cells: A study of engineering methods such as balance of line in a module, cycle time, well same to compare the influence of LM in the new efficiency measures. Finally it will display the results of efficiency indicators in a minimum of 63 %.

Index Terms—Lean manufacturing, line balance, modular system.
