ABSTRACT
Today, every company wants to curtail its expenses. Productivity being the main criteria, the daily demand plays a major role and based on this production takes place. This paper shows how cellular concept has contrasting approach in India and Japan and also, it gives detailed information about cell and cellular layout. Also, it consists of problem identification in the existing layout, objectives and methodology followed to achieve the objectives .In India, few companies like TVS, Maruti etc. have implemented it and other few are in a way of implementation (like Mahindra & Mahindra). A “Cell” is a collection of dissimilar machines or processes, located closely together in a sequential operation manner and dedicated to a set of a similar part and product. Cell is that in which two or more machine should be arrange such that receiving and shipping should be present at same location. Each machine has fix position and dissimilar machines are arranged in a cell so, the layout is known as cellular layout. CMS emphasis on : 1)To reduce through put time of the component, 2)To increase the target of manufacturing component and completion of target as per demand, 3)To maximize manpower utilization, 4) To minimize space utilization, 5)To reduce investment per unit output, 6)To reduce manpower requirement, 7)To improve Material Flow Control, 8)Cell Design, 9)Design Standardization .

...Too much computer exposure may hinder learning By G. Jeffrey MacDonald, The Christian Science Monitor For all the schools and parents who have together invested billions to give children a learning edge through the latest computer technology, a mammoth new study by German researchers brings some sobering news: Too much exposure to computers might spell trouble for the developing mind. | | | Key to the future: In Freeport, Maine, all seventh- and eighth-graders get their own laptop. | | | | By Melanie Stetson Freeman, courtesy The Christian Science Monitor | | From a sample of 175,000 15-year-old students in 31 countries, researchers at the University of Munich announced in November that performance in math and reading had suffered significantly among students who have more than one computer at home. And while students seemed to benefit from limited use of computers at school, those who used them several times per week at school saw their academic performance decline significantly as well. "It seems if you overuse computers and trade them for other [types of] teaching, it actually harms the student," says lead researcher Ludger Woessmann in a telephone interview from Munich. "At least we should be cautious in stating that increasing [access to] computers in the home and school will improve students' math and reading performance." With the rise of computers in classrooms has come a glut of conflicting conclusions about the actual value computers bring to......

Low Profitability in Automobile Industry

...The world automobile industry has experienced low profitability during the past two decades. What features of the industry have caused intensive competition and low profitability? Value of a product To run an industry, or more specifically, a company operating within an industry, it is a must to gain profits over the products. Profits keep the company’s expenses going while leaving enough on the table to meet the future demands. Until and unless the company receives profits on its products, it cannot invest in further endeavors and would probably start falling backwards. The path towards growth and expansion would become rocky and impossible to cross by the company. Hence, the end result would be the company to wind-up its activities or get sold to someone who can make better use of the company. Profits start coming in with products that prove valuable to the customers. Value of a product is determined by the customer’s approach towards a product. A product that the customer is willing to spend his money on thinking that it will solve his problem, or would be helpful in solving the problem. When a customer believes in a product to be helpful for him, he willingly agrees to pay more than the costs incurred in the manufacturing, or production of the product. But value does not directly counts as a profit for the company that is manufacturing the product. The superfluous of value over the cost incurred in the manufacturing of the product gets divided among the consumers......

...Introduction Automobiles industry produces automobiles and other gasoline-powered vehicles, such as cars, buses, trucks, and motorcycles. The automobile industry is one of the most important industries in the world, affecting not only the economy but also the cultures of the world. The automobile industry is considered the single largest manufacturing sector in the world (Turnbull et al., 1992). It provides jobs for millions of people, generates billions of dollars in worldwide revenues, and provides the basis for a multitude of related service and support industries. Automobiles revolutionized transportation in the 20th century, changing forever the way people live, travel, and do business. The energy that automobile industry use to produce vehicles will result carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions which the most significant of the green house gases(GHG). Historian Mark Foster has estimated that “fully one-third of the total environmental damage caused by automobiles occurred before they were sold and driven.” He cited a study that estimated that fabricating one car produced 29 tons of waste and 1,207 million cubic yards of polluted air. Extracting iron ore, bauxite, petroleum, copper, lead, and a variety of other raw materials to process steel, aluminum, plastics, glass, rubber, and other products necessary to construct automobiles consumes limited resources, uses great amounts of energy, and has serious environmental repercussions. Nowadays, environmental problems are......

Managing Competitiveness Using Production Volumes - Product Variety Model for Automobile Industry

...Managing Competitiveness using Production Volumes - Product Variety Model for Automobile Industry Mirza Jahanzaib, Syed Athar Masood, Khalid Akhtar, Khurram Ali Industrial Engineering Department, University of Engineering & Technology, Taxila, Pakistan * jahan.zaib@uettaxila.edu.pk ABSTRACT: The manufacturing industries can be classified into process industry (PI) and discrete parts manufacturing industry (DPMI). Process industries have dedicated product line with fixed processes, routings and planning, whereas while discrete parts manufacturing industries are more flexible in terms of production volumes and varieties. For economic manufacturing, the optimum combination of Volume – Variety exists i.e. job shop, batch production system or mass production. In this paper, we have looked at the typical production volumes and varieties and have argued that there exist very low variety and low to medium production volumes for this particular sector. This calls for investigating ways and strategies to effectively cope with this situation. By taking a case of automobile part vendors triple strategy approach is adopted. Three strategies are not mutually exclusive – a subsequent strategy assumes that the previous strategy has been executed earlier and its benefits/ results still exist when the subsequent strategy is implemented. Strategies are, Good Governance Strategy (GGS), an Automation Strategy (AS) and an Export Strategy (ES). Using real life data from automobile part......

...operating in an environment of forces that create both threats and opportunities for their businesses. These environmental forces, which make up something known as the "macroenvironment", include: demographic, economic, natural, technology, political and cultural. Since the macroenvironment is generally uncontrollable, businesses often must find ways to adapt to the constant changes. For example, over the past few years, the auto industry has been affected tremendously by changes in the technology, natural, and political environments and therefore forced to change their marketing strategies. The Technology Environment Kotler identifies the technology environment as the most powerful force affecting and shaping the future (83). The environment consists of: industrial productivity, new manufacturing processes, new products and services of competitors, new products and services of supply chain partners, and any new technology that could impact a company (Environmental Scanning). Technology has been responsible for developments such as the internet, computers, laser surgery, organ transplants, antibiotics and more (Kotler, 83). While advances in technologies are creating new markets and opportunities they are also replacing older technologies. Companies that do not keep up with these changes will find their products or services become obsolete and not up-to-date with the consumer buying behaviors and preferences. The Natural Environment According to Kotler, "the natural......

Lean Management in Automobile Industry

...Lean Management In Automobile Industry Lean Management In Automobile Industry Arvinder Singh, Bargavi Poloju, Inderpreet Kaur, Inderjeet Kaur, Jaskaran Singh Gill Eastern Institute of Technology September 10, 2015 Abstract Lean and six sigma are widely known business improvement processes for industries /organisations these days for achieving drastic results, which are majorly cost cutting, quality maintenance and time management by specializing in processes to boost performance. Nowadays, There are some industries that are even integrating lean and six sigma into a more cohesive strategy i.e., lean sigma in order to establish even more powerful and effective process which focuses at eliminating wasteful activities and retaining most of the strengths of each activity. Lean Sigma aims to combine waste eliminating strategies of Lean Thinking with variability reducing techniques of six sigma to promote growth and increase revenue from the bottom line of organisations(M. Kumara). Lean management is outlined as a consistent and a methodical approach to determining and eliminating waste through continuous improvement, flowing the merchandise at the pull of the client in pursuit of perfection. The idea of lean management was developed for maximizing the resource utilization through reduction of waste, and eventually lean was developed in response to the unsteady and ever-competitive business organisations. For organisations to face major challenges and competition can......

The Automobile Industry

...I chose the automobile industry because I feel that it is one of the largest and most innovative industries. The automobile industry is forever growing and forever changing. The history of the automobile begins as early as 1769, with the creation of steam engine automobiles capable of human transport. In 1806, the first cars powered by an internal combustion engine running on fuel gas led to the modern gasoline- or petrol-fueled internal combustion engine. The early history of the automobile can be divided into a number of eras, based on the prevalent method of automotive propulsion during that time. Ferdinand Verbiest, a member of a Jesuit mission in China, built the first steam-powered vehicle around 1672. By 1784, William Murdoch had built a working model of a steam carriage in Redruth, and in 1801 Richard Trevithick was running a full-sized vehicle on the road in Camborne. In Russia in the 1780s, Ivan Kulibin started working on a human pedalled carriage with a steam engine. He finished working on it in 1791.The first automobile patent in the United States was granted to Oliver Evans in 1789. In 1805, Evans demonstrated his first successful self-propelled vehicle, which not only was the first automobile in the USA, but was also the first amphibious vehicle. His steam-powered vehicle was able to travel on the road, on land, and via a paddle wheel in the water. What some people define as the first "real" automobile was produced by Amédée Bollée in 1873, who built......

As compared to the production of mere 4,000 vehicles in 1950, the production of the industry crossed the historic landmark of 10 million vehicles in 2006. Today, the industry produces a wide range of automobiles and auto-components catering to both the domestic as well as foreign markets. The development of the industry has been shaped by the demand on the one hand and the government interventions on the other; the influence of the latter being considerable. The evolution of India’s automotive industry is identified to have occurred in four......

...The automobile industry is a giant, serving both public and private sectors of the economy and consuming enumerable amounts of goods used in production, accounting for numerous additional jobs. The complexity of the industry has grown over the years along with the complexity of the products it produces. New means of advertising and other market strategies further complicate this already hugely intricate industry. On top of this, the industry continues to evolve on an almost yearly basis with the introduction of new “essential standard features” that one would not have even considered putting in a car five years earlier. Despite it’s relatively recent rapid growth in the past 100 years, the automobile industry, had a somewhat slower start. Once the industry was set in motion it unquestionably continued to grow and develop amazing machines that provide a great service to society and a great profit to its manufactures, but the first 130 years the automobile industry took to establish itself as an important part of the economy are just as important to fully understand the industry. The first self-propelled street vehicle was invented by the French engineer and mechanic, Nicolas Joseph Cugnot, in 1769. It was a military tractor used by the French army to haul artillery. It was destroyed later that same year in what is considered the first automobile accident; it crashed into a wall.2 The engine, like most of its time, was steam powered. Steam was the main source of......

...not required significant technological activity. The share of engineers working in the assembly industry in Brazil in the industry total employment is an indicator supporting such argument. In the 1980s, it was less than 1% (Quadros, 1993). By the early 2000s, the share had quadrupled. Major changes in the Brazilian automotive market and industry occurred in the early 1990s. These changes implied a significant redefinition in the local PD strategies of car assemblers. Two elements influenced these changes: trade liberalisation and government policies specifically focused on the automobile sector. 2.2 Trade liberalisation and growth in local demand The process of trade and investment liberalisation in the Brazilian economy started in the early 1990s, following the inauguration of the government of the first elected President after military rule. Brazilian assemblers were not prepared to face the competition of imported vehicles. The sudden explosion in vehicle imports intensified domestic competition and showed the need to update products and improve productivity and quality standards in local car and truck manufacturing. This has triggered an escalation in investment by assemblers. Total investment in the assembly industry in Brazil rose from US$5.4 billion, in the 1980s, to US$16.6 billion, in the 1990s, according to the Brazilian Automotive Industry Association (ANFAVEA). This figure comprises reinvestment by incumbents and inward......
