The Analysis of Kaizen Implementation for Increasing Production Capability: A Case Study of Musical Instrument Industry

Authors : Amarria Dila Sari, Muhammad Irfan Januar, Taufiq Immawan and D.S. Samsudin

Abstract: Music instrument manufacturers are always trying to increase productivity as the demand for piano products increases. The problems that exist in the production department (painting) has not been able to meet the demand for white piano production. This is due to the uneven distribution of workloads on 4 painting operators to produce more than 12 units of pianos per day. This study aims to measure the production capabilities based operator workload using a supported workload analysis time study methods and tools man machine chart to determine the efficiency of work between the operator and the conveyor by applying kaizen activity. Observations were made on the four operators that make the process of spray in the cabinet piano before and after the kaizen activity. Results from this study show that with the addition of one operator which makes activity among spray and conveyor operators become more efficient, thus, it can use existing capacity in addition to the operator workload becomes more balanced and is in a category underload. So, the company succeeded in increasing the production capability that was initially 12-14 units of white piano.
