Paper Title :
Application of Value Stream Mapping to Reduce Cycle Time for MCB – A Case Study

Author :Kshitij Mathur

Article Citation :Kshitij Mathur , (2017 ) " Application of Value Stream Mapping to Reduce Cycle Time for MCB – A Case Study " , International Journal of Mechanical and Production Engineering (IJMPE) , pp. 59-62, Volume-5,Issue-10

Abstract : At present, FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) industries have a major challenge to reduce/remove waste and decrease lead times for greater efficiency. A concept of Value Stream Mapping (VSM) introduced by Toyota back in 1997 is applied to target a particular assembly line which manufactures Circuits. The objective of this case study is to accommodate increase in demand by using lean manufacturing principles. This study deals with 20 steps wherein cycle time, setup time & number of workers is known. Based on these observations and data a current state value stream map (CSVSM) is created to identify waste and non value adding activities. Processes which fall below desired takt time are identified and their cycle time is reduced to create a future state value stream map. Keywords - Lean Manufacturing, Lead Time, Value Stream Mapping, Process Improvement
