ABSTRACT:
RASSA Pipes Private Limited, deals with the production of PVC pipes, Garden pipes and suction pipes of various sizes. At the same time global competitiveness and cost optimization has been the need of the time to look into seriously. This project is about the productivity improvement by reducing the cycle time of a PVC pipe production process with the help of Simul8 Software. The main objective of this project is to study the existing scenario of the shop floor and to improve the productivity of the plant. There are many techniques used for productivity improvement, still there are no definite techniques to be used. By using Simul8 and process flow observation also the un-needed workstation can be identified and be reduced so that the number of workers needed for each process of the production can be reduced so that the productivity can be improved. Thus adding to the objective of productivity improvement as a result.
