Abstract

The article presents an example of the value stream mapping method application for the analysis of the production process of semi-trailers for transporting liquid food products. Below were presented characteristics of value stream mapping method, construction, functions and course of the trailer production process in details. On the basis of value stream map analysis conclusions were drawn that point out possibilities of improving and reducing the production costs of tankers for liquid food products transport.

Paweł Sutowski received his MSc degree in Mechanics and Machine Design and PhD (with honors) degree in Machinery Construction and Operation from Koszalin University of Technology, in 2001 and 2008, respectively. Since 2008 he has didactic-research position in the Department of Production Engineering at the Koszalin University of Technology, where currently he works as an Assistant Professor in production planning and control team. His scientific work focus on problems concerning quality and efficiency control of machining processes by monitoring and diagnostic output signals. In his work, he uses modern signal acquire and converting unit systems. The most important in his work are non-destructive testing (NDT) methods with the use of acoustic signal and others. He has participated in national research projects, presenting results of his work at international and national conferences. He has published scientific papers in international and national journals, book chapters, as well as conference proceedings. He is also the co-author of one monograph. In his professional work he was also experience in domestic and foreign industry. He was a CAD designer (Satrorius AG, GIPO Corp.), as well as software programmer and commercialize (ZETO SA).
