Abstract

This project was prepared for the Park Place Manufacturing plant of the Bose Corporation in Framingham, MA to design and analyze a manufacturing line, known as the Final Line. An analysis of the current state of the line was conducted, alternative designs were presented and an optimal layout was selected for implementation. The goal in designing the new Final Line was to incorporate lean principles leading to a more efficient manufacturing cell.
