Abstract

This study aims to reduce defects in the plastic-injection process in car’s component industry which has produced about 10,000 pieces per month and the collection of preliminary data for the month of June 2558 has found that defects or the damaged 926 pieces or lost of 555,600 baht .

However, when an engineer’s meeting that involved in the production line by used the cause and effect diagram for analysis was found 2 main causes be the lack of staff’s skill and improper practices. Solutions for improvement a problem are redesign and improve the working method including new standards for inspection.

A result from the solutions was found the proportion of defect is decrease from the data collected in July and August 2558 was found defects amount of 722 pieces and 455 pieces respectively. In August, the company is not lost a worth in 282,600 baht money and back a budget to development process and increase performance of the company effectively.
