Abstract

Production logistics, just like any other functional area of an enterprise, must be constantly optimized and improved to meet the requirements of growing competition in terms of technology and in terms of customer satisfaction. The efficiency of logistics processes in the production system depends on the use of various methods and tools offered by modern management concepts. Currently, one of the most effective concepts used to improve processes in enterprises is Lean Manufacturing. Due to the choice and application of proper for a particular process Lean tool the enterprise is able to gain many advantages e.g. decline in quantity of shortages, shorten time of orders completing, improve productivity, meet supply deadlines, decline in stocks. The aim of the article is to present suggestions for improvements for the assembly process, using the work standardization. The developed standard concerned the method of movement of operators between workstations, which significantly affected the work efficiency.
