Amrita Kirtane | Dr. Nagendra Sohani


Abstract: The work in the present paper is based on study conducted in a medium job type small scale industry located at Pune; Maharashtra; which manufactures couplings. While manufacturing the parts; there is one modes of material handling that is with the help of trolley. The Existing Plant Layout of the Company has been designed in such a way that there is no optimum utilization of the resources.
