Reducing to Excess Manpower & NVA Activities by Time Study Method at Edible Oil Industry

Prem Singh Chouhan


Abstract: Productivity is being the most important thing in the manufacturing world. This paper highlights a methodology developed for minimization of non-value added activities (NVA) and minimization of fatigue in manufacturing line by using Time Study method revealed the excessive movements of operators and workers. Work study in productivity improvement could be done in two approaches, which are method study and time study. Thus, this research will use process mapping as the method study. All this initiated by performing work study on the manual operators and workers activities. This case study was conducted at a Edible oil company. From this study, NVA activities, the standard time, utilization and recommendation for man power planning could be established. The necessary changes were suggested in workplace to minimize the stress creating unproductive movements. These results could be used for optimization of time at the company. So, the paper, it is believed, would be great help to those working in the area of efficiency improvement in manufacturing industry.
