Abstract: this work is carried out to apply the lean tools i.e., 5S to solve the problems in a detergent manufacturing industry. The lean tools are one of the most effective and efficient method for eliminate the waste, improve the quality, overall performance of the machine and improves the annual profit. Their main aim is to reduce the cycle time. The objective of this work is to increase the productivity and eliminate the unwanted steps. Primary method is used for the data collection i.e., Observation method. The stopwatch is used to calculate the time taken for each job. The improvement of work process was executed by eliminating and combining the work process, which reduce the production time, number of process, increases the production rate and also provides the free space. 5S is used to achieve the objectives. The time taken to complete the work has been noted down before and after implementation of 5S. When we reduce the cycle time, the productivity will increase. When we implement the 5S the cycle time will reduce from 190 sec to 110 sec.
Keywords: 5S, Productivity, Cycle Time, Improves overall performance.
Scope of the Article: Measurement & Performance Analysis.
