    Description

    Imports from foreign furniture manufacturers are on ,the rise, and American manufacturers must take advantage of recent technological advances to regain their lost market share. To facilitate the implementation of these technologies for improving productivity and quality, a graphic model of the wood furniture production process is presented using the IDEF modeling process. Description explains the data that flows and the activities that occur in the plant, and their interaction. By analyzing the model, communication may be improved, specific points for implementing new technologies may occur, bottlenecks and problem areas may become evident, inventory control may be simplified, and paperwork may be reduced.
