There are four types of processes will be consider in manufacturing our product, Paper mate Kilometrico Sport II, as below:
i. Project production
ii. Batch production
iii. Mass Production
iv. Continuous line production
As we assumed, the preferred processes which suitable are Mass production and continuous line production.
Production | Mass | Continuous Line | Comment | Choice |
Type of product | Made-to- stock(standardized ) | Commodity | Pen component is standardized and ready to assemble. | Mass |
Type of customer | Mass market | Mass market | None comparison | - |
Product demand | Stable | Very Stable | Pen demand is stable due to market share is not large. | Mass |
Demand volume | High | Very High | Stationary (pen) is high demand (requirement) but not consider as basic need. | Mass |
No. of different products | Few | Very Few | Pen should be very few different with other, i.e. tolerance | Continuous Line |
Production system | Repetitive, assembly lines | Continuous, process industries | Assembly line is more suitable due to the process is connected line flow and higher volume and standardized product. | Mass |
Equipment | Special-purpose | Highly automated | The assembly line remains worker to proceed, not fully automated. | Mass |
Primary type of work | Assembly | Mixing, treating, refining | Production line for the pen is assembly. | Mass |
Worker skills | Limited range of skills | Equipment monitors | The task is repetitive and required less skilled worker. As stated above, it is not fully monitor by equipment. | Mass |
Advantages | Efficiency, speed, low cost | Highly efficient, large capacity, ease of control | The more efficient and ease of control, the better process for production. | Continuous Line |
Disadvantages | Capital investment;lack of responsiveness | Difficult to change, far-reaching errors, limited variety | The less capital investment and reaching errors, the... [continues]
