Realizing The Gravity Of The Manufacturing Situation

A metal products' manufacturer creatively finds a solution to the problem of waste jamming equipment and harming output, product quality and cost, through installing that equipment upside down and allowing gravity to deal with the waste ... Check out below how to breed from this Sebir

Goal

Increase productive output of a metal products' manufacturer

Problem

Following robotic automation, waste generated during the production process is jamming the equipment and compromising output, product quality, and cost. It was previously removed by a human operator

Sebir

The goal is achieved through disconnecting the equipment and re-installing it upside down. This inversion causes the waste to fall from the equipment in accordance with the laws of gravity. For instance, waste metal chips generated by a metal products’ manufacturer fall from the upended fabrication machines to the floor With the cause of jamming eliminated, production is no longer disrupted and quality impaired

Breeding Hint 1

Think about how you might re-engineer your productive facilities to ensure that you fully employ physical laws, such as the force of gravity. This could be a very economical way to remove impediments to the efficiency of your operations

Breeding Hint 2

Think how you might take advantage of the physical, mechanical, chemical or electronic properties of your technology and productive processes, to make certain that you maximize their output and quality and minimize costs
