Applying Constraint based Theory to a Complex Aerospace Manufacturing Process

A new airplane model is quickly ramping up in production rates, and in order to achieve the organizational targets and commitments, Flow Days, Unit Hours and Cycle Times must be reduced throughout the entire supply chain.

A new airplane model is quickly ramping up in production rates, and in order to achieve the organizational targets and commitments, Flow Days, Unit Hours and Cycle Times must be reduced throughout the entire supply chain. The Continuous Improvement Group (CIG) is an initiative supporting these improvements by applying the Theory of Constraints to identify improvement opportunities and lead teams to implement solutions and make the improvements. This thesis details the approach of using historical manufacturing data to identify focus areas for analysis and a methodology for analyzing a specific manufacturing process. This analysis and the improvement opportunities identified for several processes in the Final Assembly of the new plane are discussed, as well as the efforts implement solutions to these opportunities. Finally, this thesis also describes the mindsets and organizational characteristics that are necessary in order to make large efficiency improvements in a complex manufacturing process.

Modern Manufacturing Processes draws on the latest international research on traditional and non-traditional practices, to provide valuable advice on the digitization and automation of the manufacturing industry. In addition to providing technical details for the correct implementation of the latest tools and practices, the impacts on productivity and design quality are also examined. The thorough classification of manufacturing processes will help readers to decide which technology is most effective for their requirements, and comparisons between modern and traditional methods will clarify the case for upgrading. This comprehensive assessment of technologies will include additive manufacturing, and industry 4.0, as well as hybrid methods where exceptional results have been gained through the use of traditional technology. This collection of work by academics at the cutting edge of manufacturing research will help readers from a range of backgrounds to understand and apply these new technologies. Explains how the correct implementation of modern manufacturing processes can help a factory gain the characteristics of an industry 4.0 business Explores what the main technical and business drivers for new manufacturing processes are today Provides detailed classifications and comparisons of traditional, non-traditional, and hybrid manufacturing processes

• One of very few books available to cover this subject area. • A practical book with a wealth of detail. This book covers the major manufacturing processes for polymer matrix composites with an emphasis on continuous fibre-reinforced composites. It covers the major fabrication processes in detail. Very few books cover the details of fabrication and assembly processes for composites. This book is intended for the engineer who wants to learn more about composite processing: any one with some experience in composites should be able to read it. The author, who has 34 years experience in the aerospace industry, has intentionally left out mathematical models for processes so the book will be readable by the general engineer. It differs from other books on composites manufacturing in focussing almost solely on manufacturing processes, while not attempting to cover materials, test methods, mechanical properties and other areas of composites.

The theories of the Toyota Production System have been operational touchstones now for over twenty years in North America and Western Europe. In spite of this many companies, particularly those in high-mix low-volume manufacturing, continue to struggle with their implementation. The goal of this thesis is to openly examine the fit of the Lean tradition with the realities of complex high-mix low-volume processes and pave the way for improvements. This thesis explores the implementation of Lean processes at Jodd-Thonson's aerospace manufacturing facility, Daugy-Naudier, in France. The work is divided into two parts: 1. Implementation of Lean manufacturing principles in the Actuator assembly and machining department and benchmarking of challenges with other LFM Lean projects at other high-mix, low-volume manufacturers, 2. Implementation of a process to evaluate the cost and return on engineering changes as well as improvement to the change management process. Through the analysis of case studies, this thesis questions the relevance of some widely accepted Lean tools in the context of complex high-mix low-volume environments. I develop a set of hypotheses about risk factors and solutions particular to high-mix-low-volume Lean implementations. The combination of strategic and tactical projects examined in this thesis shows that implementing Lean in high-mix low-volume is necessarily an enterprise-wide process. Its success depends on developing a Lean culture that can successfully leverage distributed, tacit knowledge about complex products and processes.
