PROPOSED AN AUTOMATED TECHNOLOGY STRATEGIC PLAN FOR VALVE


TECH TO ACHIEVE THE COMPANY GOAL REGARDING THE AUTOMATION
ISSUE.

PROPOSAL OF STRATEGIES IMPROVEMENT - AUTOMATION AND


NEW TECHNOLOGY

Identify components to purchase from vendor and components to


fabricate inhouse

Developing company website and accepting online order from domestic


and abroad customers.
1 Manufacturing

1.1 Introduce fully automation assembly line (PLC operated


system, robot and CNC machines) to replace human
dependency.

1.2 Barcode system for incoming parts recording, wip, finished


good and non-comformance items and inventory
management system.

1.3 Usage of imaging ( x'ray) and machine automation for


inspection and testing.

1.4 Inspection Computerized and on time data recording


(production and inspection result) and analysis (statistical
process control) and to fast respond on the complaints by
customers.

1.5 Fully automation packing machine to speed up packaging


time and reducing packaging failure.

1.6 Automatic label printer using scanner barcode.

1.7 Heavy duty AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle) and robotic


handler for product handling.

1.8 Change layout to FMS (Flexible Manufacturing Systems) for


effective automation line producing small quantity of varies
products.

1.9 Create a sales and advertisements network trough


Information Technology i.e. company web

1.10 Introduce automation system with JIT (Just In Time) manufacturing system.

1.11 Implement TPM to set performance unit for operation


especially in term of automation(maintenance, spare parts control, etc)
1.12 Implement GPS ( Global Performance System) as key
performance index for operation and organization to review the
result.

1.13 Study the possibility to replace sand casting technique with High pressure Die
Casting Machine for consistent high volume production to in manufacturing
certain gate valve components.
2 Product Development

2.1 Introduce computer aided design (CAD) software for new


product design.

2.2 Introduce rapid prototyping.

2.3 Usage of software to simulate testing.

2.4 Product development through concurrent engineering (design


management system).

3 Human Resources

3.1 Incorporate SAP business solution system into the operation.

3.2 Customized order from supplier to tailor the requirement


through online ordering.

3.3 New recruitments will be taken with emphasizing on


manufacturing automation background and experience.

3.4 Training for all level of staff (from management to general


worker) to understand automation technology and acquire work
related skill for automation technology.

3.5 Training for all level of staff (from management to general


worker) to understand basic Microsoft requirement (Excel,
Words, Power Point) for statistic and reporting presentation

3.6 Requirement set by specific job design provided by


respective head of department.
