Abstract

While working in China for Amphenol TCS, the group was given a goal to increase the efficiency of the VHDM Power Module line from 114% to 140%. In order to achieve such a goal, one must first gain the necessary knowledge about the production line and where the current problems exist. Once this is achieved the technique of lean manufacturing can be implemented throughout the production line to reduce the bottleneck times and increase the efficiency and product output.
