Abstract

The present study has been done at one of the famous automobile industry, a leader manufacturer of tractors. The aim of study is to identify various problems on the assembly line which are causing assembly line to stop. There are two assembly lines rear assembly line and front assembly line and the work has been done on the front assembly line. The bottle neck problem is found in front assembly line and is solved by reducing the cycle time of the operations by utilizing the work study techniques and material handling techniques and it was found that cycle time of the bottle neck operation was reduced by 14.66 % per trolley.
