Lean Six Sigma Implementation In Cable Harness Manufacturing

The cable harness manufacturing industry has been growing in a fast pace during the recent years in India. Cable harnesses are used to link together all the electrical components scattered throughout any electrical equipment. Cable harness manufacturing involves a series of operations which are to be carried out in a proper sequence to make a good quality harness. In real time scenario, high volume production of cable harness with consistent good quality is a difficult target to achieve. This paper is directed at the efforts intended to improve the quality of cable harness manufacturing using six sigma methodologies. It includes collection of defects data, analysis of the defects data using FMEA methodology, determining the causes and taking corrective actions to eliminate the defects. Process flow chart and manufacturing lead time are also determined and lean tools such as one-piece flow and job instruction are also used.
