Abstract

Productivity improvement is critical for any business because it has an effect on output and profits. The purpose of this paper is to examine the implementation of industrial engineering tools in a company that manufactures filter driers. This study begins by reading standard operating procedures and analysing the process flow in order to gain a comprehensive understanding of how to filter driers. Simultaneously, observations were made on the production line to ascertain the existence of any problems. The primary issue addressed in this study was a deviation in working hours from the standard. As a result, the manufacturing company's productivity decreased. This research examined and sought out potential solutions and alternatives aimed at achieving the objective through the use of motion and time-related tools. In aggregate, the suggested alternatives resulted in an expected increase in production capacity of 174.8 %.
