2. Current Market Situation
In a fast paced industrial economy the rate at
goods are manufactured or processed it is
Down time equates to money loss, but an
autonomous plan in place would ensure the
availability of tools/ consumables required for
workshops/ quarries manufacturing industries
These industries find down time as part of the
greatest challenges with the exception being
that they are confronted due to labour
To create a sustainable system for
autonomous site management at
This is done through the implementation
of a visual management and failure
The creation of standard operating
4. Solutions to be implemented:
Simplify work flow processes on orders
Implementation of a visual management system
could be implemented on the 5S principals:
Focuses on lean distribution principals:
Its easier to manage an operation if you can fully
see and understand it, understanding comes from
being able to see what is happening, 5S visual
management is designed create a culture of self-
sustaining, self-ordering and self-improving-visual-
management assist in the simplification of work
We could place our business model inline
with existing manufacturing systems that
are already put in place i.e.:
W.M.S. to increase productivity and
ensure that plants run according to
standards put in place as protection
mechanisms against human error
Good manufacturing practice i.e. S.A.B.S.,
ISO 14001, ISO 9002, “Responsible Care”.
A structured approach to stock levels and re-orders could
be adopted on-site to ensure profitability and product
Accountability for the investment the company has made in
our products could ensure the performance and that the
machine operators understand what they using a certain
A complete guide with standard operating procedure
could be implemented within the organisation, this would
be key in starting a failure reporting program and it also
creates a culture of accountability on-site.
8. Service Model Basis
A “FRACAS” system is self-sustainable
enabling the user to trace faults:
Failure Reporting Analysis and Corrective Action
System would fall into place at customers
enabling us to differentiate the difference
between failure of the tool or plant failure due
to quality of product purchased.
These failure reports would provide details of
an item's repair to the component level.
9. The FRANCAS system.
Serves as an indicator for quality control in
the supply chain.
Serves as proof warranty for suppliers.
Ensures a measurable service level
between Customers and Organization .
