Optimize Batch Transfer between Processing Tanks
MetadataShow full item record
Estimates indicate that Diabetes will increase affecting the population worldwide in the future. To mitigate current and future demand, Barceloneta’s Factory 2 needs to improve the MK-0431 manufacturing process. Several stages in the manufacturing process have been identified for improvement. This project focuses in the optimization of the batch transfer between vessels. Six Sigma tools and methodologies (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) were utilized to identify the problem and improve the process. As a result we were able to optimize the batch transfer process, reducing the cycle time of the vessel and helping the MK-0431’s train ability to increase its manufacturing capacity. Key Terms: Cycle Time, DMAIC, Prioritization Matrix, Process Baseline.
