Module Introduction
Engineers in Manufacturing System roles are the ones responsible for individual production
lines that operate from one to hundreds of machineries at a given time. They are also
responsible for supplier chains, materials requirement planning, business & resource
planning, process control and quality improvement of the outputs produced by their
production lines. This is a Big challenge!
For many years theoretical quality models have been introduced in this field to improve the
operational and quality aspects of production lines. These models range from complex data
collection methods to housekeeping methods using lean thinking. These models have been
introduced through time by Automotive giants such Ford and Toyota as well as Quality
Gurus of the manufacturing industry and ever since then they have been used worldwide by
different industries.
This module will allow you to learn about the importance of quality and lean methods when
operating manufacturing systems in industry. You will learn about:

  1. Lean methods and techniques that improve the running of the manufacturing
    environment
  2. Quality Management models such as PDCA, TQM supported by Lean principles such
    as Kaizen
  3. Quality Manufacturing Process management using SPC and Six Sigma techniques
    How Will This Module Run?
    You will attend a series of lectures and tutorials which will equip you with the knowledge
    and skills to enable you to complete your assessment.
    How will I be Assessed?
    70% of your module mark is an individual assignment with two parts. Two of these
    assignments will be submitted as one portfolio of 2000 words.

    Case Study Analysis Using Statistical Process Control Tools and Methodologies
    Hypothesis: A small manufacturing company manufactures superfinishing machines for
    crank and camshaft bearings. They sell their machines to the larger OEM’s such as Ford,
    Renault and Volvo. Recently, after selling a machine to one of the OEMs mentioned above,
    their machine process was having quality issues on crank bearing diameters after machining.
    After extensive experiments, there are two process choices that must be considered
    (Process 1 vs Process 2).
    Luckily, a new manufacturing engineer has joined the company (You) and you have been
    tasked with making this critical decision. To help you make the best recommendation you
    have been given all the statistical data and process information to enable you to analyse it
    for statistical variation and distribution using SPC tools and to calculate process Cpk value
    using six sigma formulas then give a decision.
    Statistical Data for Case Study
    Bearing Stock removal Drawing Specifications. This refers to how much material should be
    removed during the micro-finishing process of the crankshaft bearing. If you remove too
    little of the material, this means the crankshaft bearing maybe too big therefore won’t fit the
    conrod shell. If you remove too much stock above the upper limit, then the bearing might
    end being too small to fit the conrod shells. This is a bad thing because you end up with
    scrap.
