Flow Improvement, Stations Concept, Flow Line Layout, SAW Arrangement


The production industry has been experiencing a competitive environment and striving hard to find methods to reduce manufacturing cost, waste and improve quality. Flow improvement concepts are used by the industries to reduce work in progress inventories and also to reduce the waste for competing in the global market. Facilities layout is a systematic and functional arrangement of different departments, machines, equipments and services in a manufacturing industry. It is essential to have a well-developed plant layout for all the available resources in an optimum manner and get the maximum out of the capacity of the facilities. The efficiency of production depends on how well the various machines, services production facilities and employee’s amenities are located in a plant. This research paper aims to study and improve the current plant layout.. An Attempt is made to evaluate the current layout and to propose newshop layout. The ultimate goal is to speed up the process, there by increasing productivity through a proper utilization of man and machine. In a manufacturing industry, the layout and material flow in the shop floor decides its productivity. Material handling system also plays a key role in influencing productivity, throughput time and cost of the product. This research work has been carried out as a flow improvement through the application of station concept in production industry with the objective of time reduction. Efforts are made to reduce the motion waste in the shop floor. The problems in the current layout are identified and analyzed. Then the layout is required to be modified and the results to be compared with the current layout. The results will be an improvement in productivity. A new material handling system has to be designed and to be developed to reduce the motion wastes and unwanted transportation.
