Application of value stream mapping in pump assembly process a case study
Lean-Kaizen is composed of two words lean and Kaizen; lean means elimination of non-value added activities waste and Kaizen means continuous improvement. Hence, Lean-Kaizen means continuous elimination of wastes through small-small improvements. This paper presents implementation of Lean-Kaizen concept in a small- and medium-scale enterprise SME at a non-capital region in India. The existing situation of the shop floor of selected SME was recorded, and current state map was prepared.
Value Stream Mapping: A Case Study Of Assembly Process | Semantic Scholar
Value stream mapping VSM is one of the critical tools in LM which will help in identifying wastes in materials and information flow in a specific product family. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the significance of VSM in the auto-ancillary industry in enhancing the productivity and the quality. A case study approach is followed to demonstrate the significance of VSM in identifying various wastes in the auto-ancillary industry. The study has been performed by implementing seven critical steps.
Value Stream Mapping of Rope Manufacturing: A Case Study
One way of achieving constant process improvement is through value stream mapping. Value stream mapping is used to visualize the current processes for easier understanding and problem identification. A well-defined problem statement will ensure a successful outcome of a project improvement process. This research provides a case study performed on a rope manufacturing process. A current state value stream map is created, and the possible improvements are suggested.
By mapping the current state of art, it was possible to identify the waste present in an assembly line of clutch discs. The future state was suggested with improvements for elimination of waste and reduction of lead time, which went from The results showed that VSM combined with simulation is a good alternative in the decision-making for change in production process.
