Evaluation of the machine modernity in the motor industry

Manuela Krystyna Ingaldi


Most manufacturing companies realize its technologies, implemented through concrete machinery parts. They differ in terms of importance, the relevance of their selection and the level of their modernity. The purpose of this article is to analyse the chosen production machine in terms of its modernity. The ABC technology method was chosen do this research. All parts of the machine were divided into three groups: parts of main subassembly A, parts of supportive subassembly B, parts of collateral subassembly C. Then each of these parts was evaluated in the Parker's five-point scale. From the conducted analysis it results that most parts of the research machine were manufactured with more complex technologies, requiring technical skills and knowledge or with unchanging technologies used for years. It means that the research machine is not a modern machine. Perhaps company managers should take a decision on the change of the machine for the newer one. This would allow for improvement of the technical parameters of the products, increase in production efficiency and reduction of the amount of nonconforming products. Therefore, it can be concluded that a properly selected and correctly applied parts of the subassemblies contribute to the improvement in quality of products and the efficiency of the machine.
