Production Leveling (Heijunka) Implementation in a Batch Production System: A Case Study

Abstract : This paper presents a case study of an implementation of a new method for Production Leveling designed for batch production. It includes prioritizing criteria of products and level production plan. Moreover, it was applied on a subsidiary of a multinational enterprise located on Brazil, which manufacturing processes comprise batch production in a make-to-stock policy. Regarding a qualitative assessment, evidences show that the company had deficient practices related to Operations Planning. Thus, based on a case study approach, proposed method was applied as well empirical data were analyzed. Results were measured before and after this implementation by performance indicators of Costs (inventory), Speed (lead time), Mix flexibility (monthly set up operations) and Reliability (service level). Evidences confirm improvements in operational efficiency as expected. Researchers and practitioners can evaluate general applicability of this method by applying it in different companies that share similarities related to batch processing operations.
