Abstract

As OYO Sports grows it is vital for their continued growth to implement Lean Techniques in the company. Based on a series of interviews, observations and time measurements the current process at OYO Sports was analyzed and areas in need were identified. For this project Lean Techniques were implemented in redesigning the Field set assembly lines, creating a new process for the release of New Products and Hot Market Products. Also a new part dispensing system was designed and implemented on the production floor to ease the bagging operation. Future suggestions include: creating a Lean team and hiring a Lean coach to ensure continued improvement, designing assembly lines before the products release date and the continued use of Kaizen events and Value Stream Maps to address problems.
