The objective of the project is to improve the bottleneck processes in the refrigerator production line in order to improve the throughput and thus the hourly production. The initial work consisted of thoroughly investigating the root causes for low hourly production in manual & semi –automated line. Different QC tools were used to arrive at the probable reasons for the cause. Solutions were achieved by line balancing, andon implementation, process improvement to improve the hourly production and thus optimize the cycle times at individual stations.
