Paper Title
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.
