The idea of COVID-19 measures in a factory

1.Examples of “measures to prevent infection”

  • Review operator’s commuting method and clothes
  • Body temperature measurement when going to and from work and filling check sheet
  • Wear a mask, wash hands, sanitize hands, and review work clothes
  • Meetings and visitor restrictions (active use of IT communication)
  • Office environment maintenance (non-crowded layout, flow line, air ventilation, alcohol hand sanitizer, etc.)
  • Shop floor environment maintenance (non-crowded line layout, flow line, air ventilation, alcohol hand sanitizer, etc.)
  • 2. Examples of “work shift”

  • Build a production system with a minimum number of operators and review work shifts to reduce the number of people in close contact with infected person.
  • Simulate how many operators in close contact may be absent if one of your employees infected, and in that case what kind of production method is possible.
  • COVID-19 measures and creation of opportunities to build an improvement culture

    As COVID-19 measures, it is indispensable to build a production system with a minimum number of operators and review operator’s flow lines. And in order to realize them, it is necessary to optimize the production line through shop floor improvement activities.

    The management and employees working together as one to overcome various problems with wisdom, ingenuity and motivation will lead to the protection of employees and the survival of the business.
