Productivity Improvement through Automated Loading of Brake Plates into Conveyor System in an Automobile Industry


Objectives: The objective of this work is to implement a low cost automation technique in an auto ancillary plant for enhancing the quality and productivity by reducing time and cost. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Industries around the globe are keen to implement automation so as to reduce human effort and error. The present study focus on eliminating the existing drawbacks on loading of brake plates into the conveyor system for washing purpose in an automotive ancillary unit. A conceptual model was created using drafting tools and its working is validated using analysis software. Findings: The implementation of this low cost automation system would facilitate the management to reduce manual involvement in material handling, reduction of accidents and also in improving the safety of the workers. Improvements: This technique would also serve to be the most effective and efficient method for handling the machined parts thereby improving the product quality and total productivity of the organization.
