Disc Brake is a commonly used component in vehicles. It is used as a braking device to stop a moving vehicle. According to research, Malaysia being a car manufacturing country does not have any major disc brake manufacturing plant. Therefore, Malaysia is still depending on China and Taiwan to cater the spare part market demand for disc brakes. This project aims to theoretically apply the concepts of forecasting, process selection, modelling machining configurations, designing plant operations and modelling a quality control inspection plan to build a manufacturing system that is capable of producing certain amount of disc brakes. The manufacturing system is designed in a best possible way to cater the demand of market where a few cases of implementation have been considered. The operating systems proposed in the report can be used on a long term provided that the assumptions made are still applicable. The results of this project shows that the manufacturing systems design will be able to handle huge demands of disc brake with very few improvements. This has been proven by using the WITNESS Simulation. This project is a theoretical application and there are a lot of room for a more robust and optimum upgrades.
