Abstract
  • Small and medium-sized enterprises that are characterized by high-mix, low-volume, and highly variable production operations often have unstructured material movement processes that are prone to material handling wastes. These sub-optimal material handling systems are oftentimes a result of small and medium-sized enterprise's limited resources. Current tools to assist organizations in reducing material handling wastes are resource intensive, complex, or too vague. Material handling wastes are defined in this research as: a) inappropriate material handling, b) operator search time, and c) inefficient forklift routing. To help small and medium-sized enterprises reduce material handling wastes it is hypothesized that tailored visual management systems 1) can be designed from the analysis of three material handling wastes, and 2) can yield a low resource intensive solution to assist small and medium-sized enterprises in reducing material handling wastes. In order to test these hypotheses, a methodology to design an ad-hoc material handling system is developed, tested via a case study, and validated via two alternate scenarios. Results show that ad-hoc visual management systems can be designed from low resource intensive analysis and are capable of increasing the efficiency of in-house material movements in small and medium-sized enterprises. The resulting methodology is expected to assist small and medium-sized enterprises in reducing in-house material handling wastes using visual management systems.

  • description.provenance : Rejected by Julie Kurtz(julie.kurtz@oregonstate.edu), reason: Rejecting because the pages should be numbered consecutively to the end. After page 95, it starts over with 1-13, and should be pages 96 to the end. Everything else looks good. Once revised, log back into ScholarsArchive and go to the upload page. Replace the attached file with the revised file and resubmit. Thanks, Julie on 2016-06-22T16:43:11Z (GMT)
