Description

Jarraff Industries has a current Paint Book System which is out of date. The current system is simply pictures of the parts and part numbers for them. It has old versions of parts in it. This creates confusion when the current parts show up and look different. Also, new pictures have to be taken every time a new part is made, which creates a delay in the process to update the books. For a solution three different samples for new Paint Books were made to distribute to users and get feedback on what they liked and did not like about them. The sample that was most liked was picked. The first goal was to determine the formatting for the new Paint Books. Secondly, was to go through and make the complete list of parts which are painted and what areas of each part needs paint. The last goal was to design a system in which the books get updated without being forgotten. The findings showed the best format for the books was found. In this format, the books will be updated as soon as new parts are designed. The goals were to determine a better Paint Book System for Jarraff. This project concluded with a more efficient method for Jarraff’s Paint Book System. This will create a more lean type of manufacturing without wasting time because of out of date books.
