Continuous Improvement Methodology for Improving Manufacturing Processes and Product Quality in a Foundry Industry

Kiran Raj K, Aswin B


Abstract: In recent times the companies stay in a regular changing world where in customers call for better products, higher quality and shorter delivery times. To reach these customer requirements, companies depend on continuous improvement to attain their goals. Continuous Improvement (CI) is the methodology for making improvements to products, services or processes. It refers to the process upgrades which are undertaken in stages, separated by a period of time. its major goals is for increasing profits, reducing costs, and accelerating innovation. This paper is focused on the improvement of manufacturing processes and product quality in a foundry industry. The Continuous Improvement methodology based on PDCA- KAIZEN approach adopted for this research. Proper and effective tools where used for this approach. As a result of this improved process flow and high product qualities are achieved.
