In the manufacturing, every industry will involve in ramp up. This will indirectly encourage the company to purchase more machines to meet the increasing demand proportionately. However, as more machines and utilities are purchased, the working area needs to be expanded accordingly as well. During such steep ramp up, most of the plans and strategies may not be fulfilled thoroughly. Therefore, with increase of machines and utilities, the maintenance system requires makeover in order to cope with the ramp up too. The 5S will deteriorate together with the planned activities which are applicable previously, but may not be applicable now. Lean manufacturing system in maintenance bay is one of the project plans to improve the current situation to cope with the steep ramp up. The tools, re-layout, 5S, Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), Single Minute Exchange Die (SMED) are all taken into consideration in this project to help ensure that the manufacturing is one step ahead towards the next level of maintenance, the predictive maintenance. The intention for this system has always been to cope with the ramp up as well as minimize the equipment downs frequency by making use of proper tools, 5S, TPM concept and SMED concept. The end in mind of this project is to meet the vision of lean manufacturing in maintenance by eliminating common wastes faced by such industry.
