Project Title: Process Re-Engineering in sewing basic five pocket jeans
Project Guide: Mr.S.S.Ray & Mr.B.Banerjee
Background: The project focuses on reduction of the throughput time in the sewing floor by reducing unnecessary non value added activities happening in the sewing floor to increase the overall productivity in Arvind Mills Limited. Since there is a huge deviation occurring in the sewing floor between the planned production and actual output it was felt necessary to conduct the project in order to re-engineer the present process by mapping the exact areas of the delays in the sewing floor to meet customer demands.
Objective:To reduce the throughput time and delays occurring in assembly line production of basic five pocket jeans
Methodology:Analyzing current situation of the sewing floor for the huge deviations between the planned and actual and know-how of the unnecessary delays happening in the sewing line. Reducing throughput time of the sewing line and propose solutions to reduce unnecessary delays using some of the lean tools.
Findings: Causes of non value adding activities and idle time breakup identified. Throughput time reduced by 30 mins by changing machine lay out.
Conclusion: Reducing the throughput time and the unnecessary delays leads to a reduced WIP in the sewing floor leading to meet customer demands in a more effective manner.
