Development of a concept to quantify the effects of Shop Floor Management based on the example of an international automotive supplier

  • Matured markets and rising global competition lead to new challenges for the manufacturing industry. Lean Production provides an approach to meet those challenges, even more, to gain competitive advantage by improving the efficiency of processes. As implementation of Lean Production is associated with high investments in form of time and money, there is a high demand to measure these improvements. But standardized Balanced Scorecards (BSCs) and classical Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are not designed to show those occurring changes. This thesis reviews current literature researches and elaborates possible indicators to make Lean efforts measurable. This approach is further analyzed based on the example of the implementation of Shop Floor Management in a medium-sized, international automotive supplier. The thesis results in a proposal of a concrete set of indicators.
