Tri-R Allied Company is indeed one of the leading business in auto parts manufacturing industry. And as we
visit the plant in our plant tour, there are many observations that I’ve seen in their manufacturing plant.. In my first
impression, their overall plant was good, and an excellent place for manufacturing production, a place that will create
an atmosphere of a good working place.
LOCATION PLANNING ANALYSIS - in terms of their location in Cavite, its
like that the management really planned in deciding for the location of their manufacturing plant. The location is
accessible and is near to marketplace, moreover the location is in a perfect ambiance with a quiet environment and is
away from pollutions,. The location planning strategy of the Tri-R Allied Company shows an aftermath of a good
planning decision strategy, flexibility in the market industry, and a competitive advantage as a benefit of a good
measurement of location capacity. However, the environment inside the manufacturing plant I think is a bit
disadvantages for the company and its workers – the plant has a poor ventilation system wherein workers might have
a difficulty in working their respective jobs, also the lighting arrangement is also a hindrance for most of the workers.
The place inside the location plant is clean but it is dangerous for the workers because I think it is somehow narrow
inside the plant.
JOB DESIGN ANALYSIS – The whole production process of the Tri-R Allied Company is also an example of a
good work arrangement. The aimed to reduce the repetitive mechanic tasks is very well achieved. Also, the
production process has a great workflow of duties and responsibilities of each worker, wherein each worker has a
unique tasks that is needed for every production process, actually I saw how every worker is challenged and how
every worker is dedicated in their respective jobs. I also saw how everyone is fitted in their assigned tasks, everyone
is expert in their own fields, workers are trained well to fit the job that are assigned to them. Because of these, the
company achieved the benefits of a good arrangement of tasks or what we called job design.
CAPACITY PLANNING ANALYIS – Based on my observation, Tri- R Allied Inc. has a good CAPACITY
MANAGEMENT, the company determines well the production capacity needed by them to meet changing demands
for their products. Also their "design capacity" shows that they allot the maximum amount of work that they need to
be capable of completing the work in a given period, also their "effective capacity" is shows how they adjust in
completing the work required affected by the factors such as constraints due to delays, material handling etc. as I see
their production schedule posted inside their plant. Their production schedule shows how effective they were in
analyzing the allotment of amounts of work the company and customers required in a given period of time. In their
schedule, it shows that the required schedules in their work affects the impact of such other factors in determining
the amount of work needed from every worker, as for overall capacity analysis, it shows that the company has a good
Lead, Lag and Match Strategy for them to provide quality products and services to their consumers.
PROCESS SELECTION ANALYSIS -
TRI- R Allied Inc. shows the involvement in the shape producing capability and technological constraints for each of
the available machining processes of the company. Their process selection shows how they are very well performing
under complying their production rules. Posters above the plant shows motivational rules for the workers. Posters
around the plant also shows the shape and tolerance requirements of an individual feature, and the how the workers
can be capable of meeting the requirements. In here, we see that...
