Application of 6S Approach in Manufacturing Industry - A Case Study

Authors(2) :-Deepak Dhounchak, Sandeep Kumar

The main aim of this study is to resolve the problems of manufacturing industry. The 6S technique is a team oriented technology. This concept can be applied to achieve the desired results in the manufacturing plant. This technology provides continuous upgradation in the each department according to time. The main issue of manufacturing industry is to maximum use of resources and manpower in modern time. The main aim of 6S technology is to maximum use of all resources and gets maximum output from all the resources. This technology resolves the all drawbacks and issues come in the workplace. This technology increases the work efficiency of plant as well as quality and safety of plant. This technology helps the manufacturing industry to achieve better quality as well as better customer satisfaction. This technique can work as a team work in the organization. The 6S technology can be used in any organization to improve the performance. This technique is worldwide popular in the modern time. We can get maximum output from all resources by using 6S technology in our work environment. Use of this technology can reduce the 80 to 90% time in material handling and tool searching in the manufacturing plant or workplace. This technology gives quick response to every problem and resolves the problem very quickly at the workplace. We can eliminate 90% of accidents at the workplace after implementation of 6S technology.
