Stability and smooth production are the main factors of a company’s excellence. If production is unstable and substandard then productivity will decline even production targets cannot be achieved content management. This can reduce the company’s credibility in the eyes of customers while reducing company profits. In addition, the quality of the goods reaching several customers cannot be used and only causes losses. That can be avoided with yard management software.
We can use the example of a manufacturing company that supplies brake systems to customers such as vehicle manufacturers, both at home and abroad. One of the existing production lines is the disc brake production line for single consumers. At this company, there are often problems, especially in the production department, ranging from broken machines, lack of production targets, lack of components, etc., so that production activities are less smooth. Useful measures to reduce these problems are to make changes to the production system and take advantage of the features of yard management software.
In the current system, it still uses push systems and faces problems such as the large volume of Production Planning & Control Department activities, the mismatch of plans and actual production, less adaptive to changes in demand, poor information mechanisms, and inventory that accumulates. The proposed action to address this problem is to design a JIT (Just In Time) production system to replace the current production system.
The design is divided into 4 stages, namely (1) calculation of the allocation of MPS (Master Production Schedule) to each work station in the production parts, (2) calculation of the number of kanban in the production section, (3) the application of the kanban supplier, and (4) production scheduling with mixed scheduling.
The problem faced is how the Workload Distribution Algorithm for work stations, production plans in each work station, number of kanban in the production and supplier kanban, JIT production system design model along with material and information flow, and JIT production system planning algorithm. In historical MPS allocations to work stations, historical proportions are not used, but calculations are made using the proposed Workload Distribution Algorithm so that each work station receives a more balanced workload. Kanban is used as a legal tool to make a product withdrawal or production.
