Assembly Line Production Improvement By Optimization Of Cycle Time
Automobile manufacturing organizations are currently encountering a necessity to respond to rapidly changing
customer needs, desires and fluctuating market demand. Markets are affected by diverse customer needs, which demand
higher quality, shorter delivery time, higher customer service level and lower prices. Many automobile organizations have
realized the need to improve the quality of products & services to compete successfully. To compete in dynamic environment,
these organizations must have to develop new methodologies allowing them to remain competitive and flexible
simultaneously so that they can respond to the new demands. Production Process improvement becomes obligatory to gauge
as well as improvise the current manufacturing scenario (outline) and hence advent of kaizen automation plays a chief role.
This requirement is focusing on optimization of cycle time, reduction non value added work (3M-Muda, Muri, Mura), Kaizen:
Continuous Improvement. In Japanese Kaizen is for continuous automated improvement designed to eliminate waste on
resources of manufacturing system i.e. machinery, material, worker and production methods.
