Review Paper on Productivity Improvement using Kaizen - MUDA Elimination

Sudhanshu Shrivastava | Hemant Jain [3]

Abstract: Today industries are looking to grow by drastic speed by using number of new facilities and mordern developments available. Every organisation needs to enhance productivity and it is possible either by identify the wastages in current working processes and try to eliminate them by employing several new technologies or equipment in good condition with man power itself. To execute this, industries should totally wipe out the wasted or non-value adding and avoidable activities from different processes. MUDA elimination is one of the techniques of doing this. This paper focuses on the application of this muda elimination technique in bulk coal handling (unloading of coal) at a CHP of a thermal power station. As a study of the application of MUDA elimination in CHP on coal unloading method, to remove the unusable activities to optimize the existing unloading process and increase the productivity by decreasing different types of muda.
