Project and its development
The project is about redesigning the stages of UN/NON-UN standards fluid carrying steel containers or drums manufacturing process. The project is considered and conducted nearby at James G Carrick manufacturing plant, Glasgow. The entire process of manufacturing is quite vast so my area of operation concentres on three aspects of production locally called Flanger, Beader and Reducer (These terminologies are explained in activity number 3). The main objective of this project is to increase the rate of production and/or minimise the operational times accounting various range of products. Now to accomplish the goal, project was divided into three phases exploring literature review, research and design. However, the list of planned activities and their progress for the successful completion of project in allotted time period is mentioned below.
Activities and progress: The Project was divided into several work-streams to support the various strands of the project allowing me to successfully
