This project was based on the laminating production improvement for a manufacturing furniture company. Basically, the process consists of the laminated production of wood materials. The lead time and ship dates of the product play an important paper to satisfy the customer’s needs. Also, every order has to be inspected at the end of the packing process, but the focus of this project is to improve the production of laminating production. The DMAIC methodology was used to improve the efficiency and laminate of wood production. DMAIC is an acronym for a series of steps used to measure defects in a company and improve the efficiency. These steps are: Define, Measures, Analyze, Improve and Control. The focus of the project is to reduce waste time (to improve the efficiency), lead time and increase the capacity of orders according to the customer’s needs using the DMAIC methodology and SMED system. The company seeks to comply with the demand expected yearly. The DMAIC methodology brings a structure and the tool to improve a process by optimizing and stabilizing it. In this case the laminates production will be applied to help and improve the efficiency and capacity for the furniture production. Key Terms ⎯ DMAIC Methodology, Lead Time, SMED System, Waste Time.
