Abstract

This research addresses the application of lean manufacturing concepts to the make-to-order production process sector with a focus on the entertainment sign industry. The goal of this research is to investigate the production: process of Young Electric Sign Company (YESCO) and develop a current state value stream map for different work orders from the time the work order is distributed by the department of layout to the time the finished product is ready to crate. Also, we will analyze production sequences, cycle time, labor time, lead-time and down time for each step of the production process. After the analysis, a more efficient and future state value stream map will be developed by eliminating the non value-added activities and suggestions and recommendations for better manufacturing strategy will be proposed.
