In a production process, man machines, material, plant, services and methods are the input feeds, and the outputs are goods and services.…show more content…
The key to lean manufacturing is to compress time and thus improving process by continuous improvement. These wastes increase cost while adding no value from the customer’s perspective. They also extend the period of Return On Investment (ROI) and help to demoralize energetic workers. A survey was carried to know about the lean techniques that have been used to verify the relevant theories as a knowledge base and help the reader to understand the relevant concepts and theories, in term of lean principles and techniques. These cover themes of lean manufacturing that are widely used in different sectors. The difference in lean and mass production is stated and how effectively non value added waste can be eliminated in lean production by using various strategies (James.P.Womack et.al 1990). VSM tool has been applied for a small company as it is a powerful tool to identify the inefficiencies and improvement areas (Chandra deep Grewal…show more content…
A literature review has been carried out on lean supply chain using a structured content analysis by Paschal Ugochukwu, Jon Engstrom, Jostein Langstrand (2008) speaks about lean techniques carried out in different perspectives. OBJECTIVE OF THIS WORK • To study the present work flow/process flow at the prevailing shop floor. • To study the current working performance along with the realization percentage and waste control. • To increase the profit or to reduce the cost involved in the product. COMPONENT DESCRIPTION The Diffuser Housing is one of the main component of the radial flow submersible pump.
