The improvement in the productivity is a very challenging task. To improve productivity, it is important that the full involvement of the personnel. The productivity is simply defined as the ratio of rate of output to the unit rate of input. Productivity depends on factors such as process, quality, labour & production. To increase or improve the productivity we must improve the factors affecting it. In this paper, the productivity is improved by solving the problem related to process. In this problem is understood through the Kaizen technique. In that the all personnel are involved to solve the problem related to processes in the shell fabrication shop (SFS) & reached to the proper solution which is elaborated in this paper. This project utilizes Kaizen Methodology to determine the probable cause and the solution for the productivity issue in the fabrication shop. The technique involves removal of the Non-Value Added Activities in order to bring about a reduction in setup time. This leads to reduced redundancy of activities in process.
