Abstract

ABSTRACT Since the 1980’s, throughout the world, the industry has been widely used to lean production systems. Lean production is a system that minimize the lead time between a customer order and the shipment of the goods by reducing the all forms of waste. It has several benefits such as less process waste, reduced lead time, less rework, financial savings, increased process understanding and reduced inventory. Lean thinking is based on the manufacturing process that focuses on the delivering value to the customer. In this study, kaizen technique has been followed as the contribution of lean production system to reduce the cycle time in a PVC film producer as it is explained. Keywords: Lean Production, Cycle Time, Takt Time, PVC Film Production Process.
