All the information regarding reworking and assembly lines is to be gathered. This will be followed by the study of the latest work from the research articles and books. It will then scrutinize some most widely used quality tools and techniques, to seek out the problem. There are lots of quality tools that can be used to tackle such problems. The reviewing the literature shows the tools like 5-why, C&E diagram, Value stream mapping, and FMEA and combination of these tools will be helpful to grasp the solution of problem. The detailed research approach will be discussed in chapter 3 of this report.

• The results of this study will be limited to one automotive industry. And being specific, it is limited to one assembly product.
• The results will be based on data collected from the production, only of six month.
• The study includes merely the development of strategy to diagnose and prioritize the risks associated with the problem.
• The strategy for improvement could not be implemented in the time span of the study; it will be ongoing project study.
