This Project seeks to analyze the internal product flow in an Assembly line of the MCCB manufacturing company, located in Vadodara. An objective of the study is to carry out VSM for the product molded case circuit breaker which is manufactured in one of leading companies in India, to identify the non-valued added activities and reduce the same and propose a future state map to reduce the production lead time. The main objective of this study is to increase the productivity against the demand. The Quality related issue regarding material & material shortage online is not in the scope of this study. Taking a value stream perspective means working on the big picture, not a just individual process; and not a just optimization but an actual improvement. It covers value adding as well as non-value-adding activities. This study also includes layout improvement and time study report. This research shows marking benefit associated with the implementation of lean program because this project shows an industrial case study of MCCB manufacturing Assembly line.
