Title
(EN) METHOD OF CONFIGURING VEHICLE ASSEMBLY LINE
(FR) PROCEDE DE CONFIGURATION D"UNE CHAINE DE MONTAGE DE VEHICULES
Abstract
(EN)
A method of configuring a vehicle assembly line, comprising the steps of classifying a vehicle assembly line (10) into at least three zones (20 to 60) by grouping assembly parts based on the positions for installation operation, assembly procedures, and the functions of the parts, setting, for each classified zone, a standard assembly man-hour used commonly for all vehicle models, comparing the standard assembly man-hour with the assembly man-hour for each vehicle model and zone, and positioning the zone with the largest assembly man-hour for each zone adjacent to the zone with the next larger assembly man-hour, whereby a middle tact (M) can be adopted between a long tact (L) and a short tact (S), and the average speed of the line and accordingly the productivity can be increased by moving the assembly line by selectively using the three speeds.
(FR)
L"invention concerne un procédé de configuration d"une chaîne de montage de véhicules comprenant les étapes consistant à classifier une chaîne de montage (10) de véhicules en au moins trois zones (20 à 60) par groupement des parties de montage sur la base des positions des opérations d"installation, des procédures d"assemblage et des fonctions des parties, à établir, pour chaque zone classifiée, une heure-homme d"assemblage normalisée utilisée communément pour tous les modèles de véhicules, à comparer l"heure-homme d"assemblage normalisée à l"heure-homme d"assemblage pour chaque modèle de véhicule et chaque zone, et à positionner la zone ayant la plus grande heure-homme d"assemblage pour chaque zone adjacente à la zone ayant l"heure-homme d"assemblage supérieure suivante, de manière qu"un tact moyen (M) puisse être adopté entre un tact long (L) et un tact court (S), et la vitesse moyenne de la chaîne et par conséquent la productivité peuvent être augmentées par avance de la chaîne de montage par l"utilisation sélective des trois vitesses.
