Abstract
Work Shop B at ITT Flygt manufactures submersible pumps
primarily for the construction industry and are today using an
assembly principle, working on benches. Because of the
demand on short delivery times and great variations of orders
during the year there is a high pressure on the work shop.
Because of the aspects above, the work shop wants to
investigate whether it is possible to find a model for the
design of productive and flexible assembly systems.
Furthermore, the work shop wants to know which technical
and administrational changes that is possible to implement,
and what outcomes to expect. The objective is therefore to
develop a model that can be used for the design of assembly
lines that can increase profit compared to... (More)

Because of the aspects above, the work shop wants to

Furthermore, the work shop wants to know which technical
and administrational changes that is possible to implement,
and what outcomes to expect. The objective is therefore to
develop a model that can be used for the design of assembly
lines that can increase profit compared to the existing lines on
long term as well as short term. Another objective is to make
proposals about how technical and administrative changes can
improve the existing assembly process. To make sure that the
scope of the investigation will not become too great, the
development will only involve the assembly lines 39, 44 and
46. For the same reasons, not all criteria’s that are proposed in
the model are taken into consideration. If one during the
design of assembly systems only relied on the knowledge of a
few people, there is a great danger that some possible
solutions are missed out, and that the generated knowledge
never will be documented. On account of that, a structured
methodology needs to be carried out trough the design
process. We are proposing a methodology that has been
developed by ourselves and is supported by the theoretical
background, and can be used through out the entire design
process. By means of the model we have designed and
evaluated a number of system approaches that can be used for
a more profitable assembly work. Furthermore, this thesis
results in a number of technical and administrative proposals
regarding for example implementation of a separate assembly
cell, pre- assembly of the stator, delivery test and packing in
one common station, job rotation, visualization, improved
internal training and proposal activities. (Less)
