A production traveler sheet is a document which is filled by people, records how a product is manufactured and how many steps need to be followed during the process period. Problems arise when manual work is negatively impacted because production traveler sheet are either deficient, incomplete and time consuming. In this paper a production traveler sheet shows how aircraft skin is assembled and traveled. A lean tool, value stream mapping and computerized database management system were used to analyze the production traveler sheet for automatic assembling of aircraft skin. Through the application of lean concept and computer database system, lead time saving and manufacturing efficiency are obtained by reducing or eliminating non-value activities and process time.
