dc.description.abstract This thesis describes the implementation of three Kaizen events designed to improve efficiency on a gauge production line which consists of both semiconductor and mechanical equipment for manufacturing complex products with low volume and high configuration mix. A kitting process design reduced cycle time by 12 minutes in the mechanical assembly and by 3 minutes in the packing. A redesigned fixture improved loading and unloading time at the auto calibration. Use of this fixture decreased setup and dismantlement in one batch by 16 minutes. A newly designed jig made multiple loading available in batch of 8 at the vibration test, in which case, 17.5 minutes were reduced from the cycle time. en_US
