Productivity improvement is one of the core strategies or key performance indicator towards manufacturing excellence and it is also the main point in achieving a good financial and operational performance.Productivity has a positive and significant relationship in measuring the mark,scan and pack process utilization,process output,product cost,and work-in-process inventory levels and on time delivery.Thus managers' face increased pressure to improve performance within their organization.By creating a workplace that is conducive to achieve high performance at mark,scan and pack process by increasing of the machine coverage which is man machine ratio (MMR) from 1:1 to 2:1.Therefore,the consequent of the practice is causing low productivity on that process which only about 4,000 pes per man hours compare to the management target which is 6,000 pes per man hours.The objective of this study is to identify non value added activities at Mark,Scan and Pack (MSP) process of product Plastic Green Single Small Outline Reel to Reel (PSSO RTR).This study also was evaluated the implementation of lean manufacturing tools and six sigma approach in boosting up the productivity.In this study,the work measurements tools such as work study were applied in order to get better output results.Extensive work method, motion and time study were performed by Kaizen worksheet method.The designed framework by using Define,Measure, Analyst,Improve and Control (DMAIC) was implemented in the manufacturing units.Evaluation was based on number of step and motion required to perform the task and define the task in categories of value added or non value added activities.The study result showed that the improvement of work step directly improve the man machine ratio (MMR) from 1:06 to 1:1.The new MMR implementation were improved the productivity index and personal efficiency from 4 kpcs per man hours to 5 kpcs per man hours.In general,the proper of implementation of work study application and lean manufacturing were drived the high productivity and high quality in manufacturing operatios.
