Abisambra-Lemus, A. J. (Abraham José) | 2014-05-13
The plant of smelting of IMUSA S.A., like many productive plants of the metal mechanics sector
that export their products, has complex and changing processes that, in addition to being flexible
to the different exigencies from the market, must be prepared for a constantly variable demand.
In this paper the present situation of the smelting plant is described and a practical application
for the reduction of inventories, the improvement of the cash flow and capital under the methodology
is formulated by Theory of Constraints TOC. This paper becomes a guide for the possible
improvements that can be obtained in a plant, following the stages of TOC and using the resources
at the correct moment. This work is based on a particular plant, but the improvements and
changes can be applied to any industrial or service sector.
