Abstract

This research study takes place at Seagate Industries Sdn Bhd, Penang. The researcher employs the concepts of batches, line balancing, and layouts to help Seagate Industries to increase production in the "End of Line" line. This research examines the current production process and to discover and reduce non-value added activities and other alternatives to improve the process through reduction of the work-in-process inventory (WIP), reduction of the set-up times, and reorganizing the work area in a more efficient way. This research benefits any manufacturing company considering increase thru-put via reducing batch sizes, line balancing, and developing a more efficient process layout. Some of the benefits achieved through the implementation of this study are an 80% reduction in labor, an increase of 32% in production, and a cleaner and safer work area due to the elimination of excessive WIP.
