This paper focuses on productivity improvement efforts for an assembly of “ATUL GEM” vehicles, the goal of this paper is reduce manufacturing lead time with minimize fatigue of worker by use of time study and lean manufacturing methods. This paper investigated and searched for possible solutions and alternatives aimed at achieving the higher productivity using some methods like a for predict the changes expected to occur in the assembly lines. This paper identified how simple methods can be used to improve the rate of production in vehicle assembly. By making simple changes to the process, it can reduce the time taken for each operation to improve the production rate. Productivity improvement is achieved through analyzing the current method by eliminating un-necessary movements by use of standard operating procedure, reducing cycle time and providing appropriate solutions to various problems during the assembly of components to improve productivity.
