|Project Summary||Project Information|
Project Objective: The objective of this project is to introduce jidoka to the four-station assembly line within the Toyota Production Systems Lab at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
Background Information: Jidoka is a term used in the Toyota Production System that refers to diagnosing an abnormality immediately and correcting it accordingly so that defects are not passed along to the next operator.
Project Description: In order to improve quality on this line, two andon systems and a corresponding monitoring system are to be developed. One andon system is to be a typical system consisting of simple electronics. The other andon system is to be purely mechanical in nature. In order to highlight and record abnormalities, which can later be used to perform root cause analysis and develop preventative countermeasures, a monitoring system will be designed alongside the andon systems.
