Workstation productivity enhacement within hydraulic hoses manufacturing process

Authors:   Antonio Cimino, Duilio Curcio, Francesco Longo, Enrico Papoff


The paper proposes the effective redesign of a workstation belonging to a manufacturing process devoted to produce high pressure hydraulic hoses. The objective of the study is to increase the workstation productivity in terms of number of Shop Orders being completed on monthly basis. To this end, the authors adopt an approach based on Modelling & Simulation as support tool for implementing a three dimensional environment capable of recreating, with satisfactory accuracy, the real workstation. A final configuration of the workstation is presented and higher productivity levels are achieved.
