Assessment Conclusion
Future work Golden Elevator Golden Elevator (GE) factory was
established in 2011 in the east
industrial zone province of Nablus.
which was formed from the
integration of Al-Arda Company
and Al-Fouad elevators company.
1- Starting with a complete study of the plant.

2- Studied several alternatives.

3- Implement the lean manufacturing for
job shop is the best solution for GE problems.
A lean system can produce products in higher quality, lower quantities, with low and committed level of inventory, with shorter lead times, at lower costs that traditional manufactures of mass production produce.
Objectives The main objectives of the project are:
1- increasing the production rate.
2- reducing lead-time, work-in-progress and waste.
3- developing a safety function.
4- creating a management system. Lean versus Traditional Manufacturing Companies that depend on traditional methods of production needs to produce and storage in inventory to use it when their needed (push system).
lean manufacturing depend on the concept that says the production should be drive by actual customer needs and demands, this products pulled through by customers' actual requirements.
Implementation of lean manufacturing system 1- Design a simple manufacturing system
2- Recognize that there is always room for improvement
3- Continuously improve the lean manufacturing system design Waste of Lean Manufacturing System Waste is anything which does not add value to a product or service, in any office or manufacturing activity.
There are seven wastes are categories of unproductive manufacturing practices
Job shop Job shops are a small factories engaged for producing products in different specifications and standards.

The job shop allows more flexibility in making a variety of products to meet customer quality and needs. Can Lean Manufacturing Work in the Job Shop? Job shops should start work in the lean path like their product-line counterparts, by identifying wastes. Application Stage Assessment Conclusion There were several problems discovered of the factory, These problems centered in three main problems:
1- Number of workers
This is the biggest problem as the number of workers that is limited. In worst cases, the absence of one of these workers would cause the work to stops.
2- Storage problem
the problem lies in the storage of Work in progress (WIP) such as: motors, small tools, screws and other tools that are imported. Also the company is facing replenishment problems and stock outs. There is a difference between the practical number of hours which is needed to complete the elevator and the theoretical number of hours needed.
This means that there is a waste of time during the execution of the manufacturing operations Future work We will apply the principles of Lean Manufacturing to try to solve the three issues which discussed above. We will try to find the solutions which are available and lead to the development of the factory. Stages of manufacturing
