Productivity Improvement Of Forging Section Using Work Study And Automation In Existing Axle Manufacturing Plant
Abstract- In automotive industry even original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are out sourcing their product to small and
medium enterprises (SMEs). In spite of small profit margin OEMs are providing excellent product quality but their growth
are limited. They cannot afford large investment to purchase new equipment and recent software licenses. Through this study
we suggest implementing automation in forging equipment which is completely mechanical machinery and work study
which can leads to change in layout for better utilization of manpower, machinery and reduction in cycle time, resulting
increase in production volume and productivity improvement.
