Rayappa Mahale, P. Rajashekar Reddy, Shrinivas A. Kulkarni
The study was focused on continuous improvement applications in an excavator assembly line of Tata Hitachi Construction Machinery Company Limited Dharwad, Karnataka. The plant builds hydraulic excavators and wheeled backhoe loaders. The purpose of the study is to impart continuous process improvement application to reduce quality defects and improve cost efficiency. The study solves the problem of quality defects using Pareto analysis and Ishikawa Cause and effect diagram. The study objectives were to minimize the various issues regarding quality defects and thereby increasing product quality and reducing waste. Kaizen has become a foundation for this study. Through constant study and revision of processes, a better product can result at reduced cost.
