[Assignment – SET1 & SET2]
Name: P. SrinathSMDUE ID: 520923307Center: Mehbub College Campus, SecunderabadSubject Code: MB0028Subject: Production & Operations Management
ASSIGNMENT – MBA – SEM II – Subject Code:MB0028 – SET 1
1.Explain the various automated systems for transfer of materials inthe production plant? Illustrate your answer by considering anexample of an automobile showroom.
Basically, automation system comes to reduce labour power and timein the production. Here we can see the evolution systems with someexamples. The goods requited by society were produces in small quantitiesby craftsman who would know the need of the community and producedthem by their own hands with simple tools. The apprentices or by anothercraftsman, who would make them to meet the requests made. The parts and components used to make these machines had to bereplaced when they wore making parts so that interchangeability wasachieved made setting up standards and specifications important for meeting The craftsmen gave way to engineers, workers, superiors andinspectors. Division of labour became necessary to achieve efficiencies andthe jabs that became specialized. Competition has necessitated improvedquality, reduced sates and better services to the customer.Automation systems cost huge sums of money and therefore a deepanalysis of the various factors has to be done. For services, automationusually means labour saving devices in education, long distance learningtechnology helps in supplementing class room instruction. The facilitatinggoods that are used are web site and videos.Automation in the banking sector has resulted in ATMs which same thebanks a huge amount customer satisfaction. Automation is ideas when theservice provided or the product manufactured is highly standardized.Some extent of automation can be designed even with customizationi.e. product or service a meant to produce or deliver low volume specific to arequirement. The advantage of automation is it has low variability and will bemore consistent on a repetitive basis. The machines have sensing and control devices that enable them tooperate automobile. The simplest of them called machine attachmentsreplace human effort. They guide, locate, move and achieve revise positionby means of came, optical sensing. Load sensing mechanisms and activatethe controls to remove human intention.Robots are higher in the order of automation as they perform a varietyof tasks. They are designed to move movements according to programmerswritten into the computer that inside them.With the help of automation, inspection of component can be done100% ensures highest quality identification and movement of materials are2 |Page
helped by bar codes which are read and fed into the system for monitoringquantity, location, movement etc. They help the automated systems to startinformation and provide information for effecting any changes necessary. Tomake effective use of automated machines, we need to have the movementof materials from and to different time as stores, automated, Automatedstorage and Retrieval systems- ASRS- receive orders for materials fromanywhere in the production area, collect materials in the works times.Computers and information systems are used for placing orders for matters,give commands adjust inventory records which show the location andquantity of materials needed.Automated guided vehicle systems- AGVS – are pallet trucks and unitload carriers follow embedded guide wires or paint strips to destinations asprogrammed.In an automobile showroom we can see all the work automatically withlatest machine.
2.State the important considerations for locating an automobileplant? Collect information on layout planning of an automobileplant from various sources and furnish the same.
 To locate an automobile company or plant many thing should beconsider. For an automobile plant automated flaw lines, automated assemblylines, flexible manufacturing systems, global transition rapid prototyping.Building manufacturing flexibility things are necessity.About the automated flow lines we can say it is a machine which islinked by a transfer system which moves the parts by using handlingmachines which are also automated, we have an automated flow line.Human intervention ma is needed to verify that the operations aretaking place according to standards. When these can be achieved with thehelp of automation and the processes are conducted with self regulation, wewill have automated flow lines established.In fixed automation or hard automation, where one component ismanufactured using services operations and machines it is possible toachieve this condition. We assume that product life cycles are sufficientlystable to interest heavily on the automate flow lines to achieve reduces castper unit.3 |Page
