Globalization inflicted on the high competition amongst the industries,especially for the manufacturing field.Manufacturing companies need the preservation of their good quality to compete in the marketplace and survive in the industry.Therefore,determining the fundamental of quality is an essential for the company to remain competitiveness in this competition.Quality issues are the major problem occurred in this field.Hence,it is a must for companies to take action to overcome this quality problem.Lean Manufacturing(LM) is well-known philosophy due to its successful implementation in reducing the waste and also improving the quality.Numerous LM methods can be used namely as 5S,Poka Yoke,and Kaizen.Kaizen is the most common method used in manufacturing company to reduce waste and improving quality due to its applicability.A textile company is one of the company that facing hardship of remaining their quality of the products.Quality issues are then identified when the specifications of the products unfulfilled by the company.Thus,the main objective of this study is to improve the quality issues in this textile industry.Classification of the quality issues is obtained through interview,observation and simulation at production line.The critical quality issue is determined through Pareto diagram analysis.Once the issue classified,root cause analysis is applied for identifying the possible root causes the occurrence of quality issues.With the reference to these root causes,improvement action is then conducted to solve the quality issues using Kaizen approach. Improvement actions are only focusing on the packaging process.Changing of the procedures is one of the suggested actions and has been implemented at the packaging machine. The changing of the weight per lot shows the better results where there are no related issues gained after implementing this action.Observation of the machine also a suggested action for new element creation and eliminating the unnecessary barriers in the machine.The improvement actions are then validated with the calculation of the total number of quality issues existed once the implementation is done. The result depicts that the quality issues have been improved significantly after applying the suggested actions.As a conclusion,the quality can be increasingly improved with the use of Kaizen approach.
