Implementation of a Data Warehouse for Reducing Setup Time and Defect in Pulley Manufacturing Process
Published October 22, 2006 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan
V-belt pulleys, which play a key role in transmitting the power from an engine to cooling pump, oil pump, and air-conditioner, are manufactured through the sequential manufacturing process consisting of press, drawing, turning, etc. In this study, a data warehouse is designed and implemented to manage various kinds of data collected from manufacturing equipments and special information systems, which are already installed in the pulley manufacturing shop. On the basis of the data warehouse the SCDS (setup condition decision system) is suggested to reduce man-hour and/or defect rate during setup of a manufacturing process.
