Title
(EN) COORDINATED PART DELIVERY SYSTEM IN MANUFACTURING ASSEMBLY LINES
(FR) SYSTÈME DE FOURNITURE COORDONNÉE DE PIÈCES SUR DES CHAÎNES D'ASSEMBLAGE DE FABRICATION
Abstract
(EN)
A system and method for sequencing component part delivery for use in assembling vehicle bodies arranged in a substantially random assembly sequence. The system and method includes a plurality of kit carts that are loaded or stocked with vehicle specific parts in a sequence or staging area of an assembly facility. The vehicle specific stocked carts are arranged and positioned to a coordinated vehicle to assemble the vehicle using the kit carts that move along in sequence with the vehicle as the vehicle is assembled along an assembly line. As the carts are depleted of parts, the carts are returned for restocking and assigned to a subsequent vehicle.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système et un procédé de séquençage pour la fourniture de pièces constitutives destinées à être utilisées dans l'assemblage de carrosseries de véhicules agencées selon une séquence d'assemblage sensiblement aléatoire. Le système et le procédé comprennent une pluralité de chariots de pièces dans lesquelles sont chargées ou empilées des pièces particulières de véhicules dans une séquence ou une zone de remplissage d'une installation d'assemblage. Les chariots remplis spécifiques de véhicules sont agencés et positionnés par rapport à un véhicule coordonné afin d'assembler le véhicule à l'aide des chariots de pièces qui se déplacent le long du véhicule et de manière séquentielle à mesure que le véhicule est assemblé le long de la chaîne d'assemblage. A mesure que les chariots sont vidés de leurs pièces, ils sont ramenés afin d'être réapprovisionnés et affectés à un véhicule suivant.
