Abstract: Gating system is one element of casting processes. Casting process is one of the manufacturing process in which the liquid metal is poured to casting cavity. After the solidification of part we will get actual part. Advantage of casting is it can manufacture more numbers of parts in less time. If the requirements of parts are more then the casting process is used. For this the time, money and material required is more and here productivity and yield should be increased. The limitation of casting is that the defects of the parts are not seen while producing it. Defects will be seen after the part is removed from mould therefore it is necessary to analyze the gating system. Analysis of the gating system will help identify the defects and prevent the losses of money, time and material. In this work ADSTEFAN software is used for analyze the gating system because it will give accurate result. Here first the design of gating system of four, twelve and twenty is done then analysis is done. The defects identified as a result of analysis help increase the productivity and yield.
