Balance & Overspeed
Shelving OptionsAfter brainstorming different shelving ideas, roll out shelving was chosen based on several requirements such as footprint, ease of use, and safety:
Choosing a ProductDifferent rolling shelf units were researched and compared based on dimensions, weight capacity per shelf, and ergonomics:
Chosen Rack with Specifications
Space UtilizationSeveral different layouts were created in Microsoft Visio for the installation of Cisco-Eagle rolling shelf racks:
- Layout 3 was the most popular after the SDR with Dresser-Rand.
All layouts can be found in the presentation linked under Project Reviews.
Balance & Overspeed
ConceptsMany different shelving concepts were developed, with features and considerations listed in the slide:
Systems Design ReviewThe Systems Design Review was conducted on January 18, 2013 at Dresser-Rand in Olean, NY. Based off the conversation and feedback from the presentation (published below) several questions arose and decisions were made about the Heat Treatment area.
Questions that arose for consideration:
- Will the roll-out racks hold if more than one drawer is open? Is there a mechanism installed to prevent this option?
- How well will the roll-out racks move at maximum capacity?
- Would a 48" impeller fit on the shelf and have overhead crane accessibility?
- How will the shelves/slots be labeled for part organization? It is noted that the part number does not indicate size
- In terms of visual lean, What will be the priority rule for parts? Due date is not a priority option
- Could a Vertical Lift Module System work for Balance and Overspeed as an option? Mainly considering ROI
- The office in Heat Treat would not move and would remain with 2 door access
- Layout 3 for Heat Treat was chosen for its high capacity
- Each machine in the cell will be assigned a color for the visual lean system
