Abstract : In todays increasingly competitive world, it is important to constantly improve, be it a manufacturing or service industry. Quality with quantity is a main characteristic which helps a company stay in the competition. The ultimate goal of company is to pursue profit. One approach for achieving this goal is via productivity improvement. High productivity refers to doing work in shortest possible time without sacrificing quality and with minimum use of resources. Competition and the drive for profits are forcing companies to implement various productivity improvements efforts. JCB India Ltd. Located in Talegaon manufactures earth moving equipment’s like excavators, wheel loaders, compactors, backhoes. This product requires various shapes of sheet metal plates. These plates are cut by using plasma and laser cutting machines. The problem faced by company resulted in low productivity. The root cause for the problem was studied and analyzed which finally demanded for the designing and manufacturing of material handling device which will lift maximum numbers of finished parts at same time. This project work presents study and experimental analysis of causes that are responsible for low productivity of machine and methods to tackle the problem faced by industry.
