Loren Manufacturing: A Case Study: Lean Manufacturing

LEAN MANUFACTURING-A CASE STUDY ANALYSIS Abstract:
Waste is defined as anything that does not add value to the end product from the customer’s perspective. The manufacturer must minimize the waste during producing the product so that the profit of the business can generate highly and the production cost can be minimized. In our case study we studied the manufacturing procedure of casting industry. The main task in this case is to implement lean methodology production so that the waste can be minimized.

Keywords: lean manufacturing, value stream mapping, current stream mapping, future stream mapping, lean tools.

1. INTRODUCTION

functioning from the attitude of the consumer who consumes a product or service, or any action that customer would be willing to pay money for.
The original there are seven wastes (muda) they

5. KANBAN: It create a visual display of how the process is progressing and the progress can be tracked easily. Basically Kanban is a pull system and reduce the amount of work in process, it values smooth flow of work throughout the process
6. JUST-IN-TIME: J-I-T production means without any inventories the production should be complete smoothly the just-in-time is an pull system.

THE FUTURE STSTE MAPPING AFTER USING THE ABOVE LEAN TOOLS IS:

4. COMPARISON BETWEEN CURRENT STATE MAPPING AND FUTURE STATE MAPPING: Column chart 1
The number of working days decreases from 7 to 1 in future state map.
Column chart 2
The Non-value activities in current state map is huge 8858.4 minutes Compared to future state map 254 minutes.

5. CONCLUSION Future state mapping is an theoretical approach, built up by using suggested methods and if the organization utilizes the lean manufacturing tools really it increases the productivity and beneficial to organization the main theme of the lean manufacturing is “get more with less” the exact thing is observed in this case study more productivity with less
