Abstract

The purpose of this work is to implement the lean manufacturing tools in Lamina Suspension Products Ltd. - an Indian manufacturing sector and develop a plan for reducing lead-times and increasing the output. Theincrease in lead-times due to undefined batch size and poor product flow is causing the manufacturer a loss in market share to its competitors and thus the challenge is to provide qualitative products with reduced lead time. Value stream mapping (VSM) – a lean tool is used to determine areas of potential improvement on the plant floor. The paper concentrates on the production line of main leaf spring. A current state map is developed and analyzed, to pin point areas that have potential for improvement. After analyzing the current map and discussing with the experts, a future state map is created to suggest ways to reduce lead-times and increase productivity/output. The map will include lean manufacturing methods to enhance the productivity and reduce the lead time.
