Abstract
Globalization has changed the concept of quality & customer satisfaction, and has established new benchmarks. Customer’s choices and perceptions have also been changing rapidly. This leads to high variability and short product life cycle. An industrial and manufacturing enterprise have to struggle to gain the competitive edge and meet or exceeds the aspirations of customer. In this context, adoption of proper tools & techniques leading to higher productivity and quality becomes the key issue. Changing over to Just-in-time (JIT) manufacturing philosophy has a lion’s share in most Japanese success stories. There are various tools to realize JIT. A pull way comprising Kanban can be implemented in large country like India with the help of “Milk Run way”, which establishes a supply chain. This paper deals in brief the case of implementation of Kanban way in a Tractor Manufacturing Company and its cost analysis for gaining the productivity advantage. The issues like quality & high inventory levels are addressed by designing and implementing a Simple (single card) Kanban way in a warehouse of the Tractor Assembly Plant. After implementing & operating the way for a pilot batch of components, its implications on the productivity and quality are assessed.
