Abstract

Nowadays, manufacturing industries have become tougher and a very competitive markets ever since. Recently, many problems occur at the selected textile industry. One of the problem that occur is increasing of waste. This condition may lead to increasing of lead time. Value Stream Mapping (VSM) will provide detailed understanding of all the processes involved in production and thus will improve it. This tool can help an organization to minimize waste at all level, improve the quality, and reduce cost and time. The objectives of this project are to develop current state map (CSM) of textile manufacturing industry, to determine wastes by analysing CSM and to develop future state map (FSM). This study focuses on the production of product ball pin. This study applied Ishikawa diagram and why why analysis to determine the root cause of the waste. VSM method were used to visualize all processes and determine the waste. Before create the VSM, observation were used to know the flow of the process. After observation, data collection was done using time studies. Then the CSM is created. The result is 10439.84 minutes for value added and 20 days for non value added. After the analysis done, the FSM is develop based on the suggestion improvement. The result for the FSM the Non Value Added or lead time were decreased from 20 days to 16 days and the Value Added time were decrease from 10439.84 minutes to10438.653 minutes. For future work, the suggestion for improvement must be implement by company to know the efficiency of value stream mapping.
