The project explains the scope of implementing lean practices in polypropylene bag manufacturing activities with an aim to eliminate wastes and to improve the productivity with the help of VSM. A value stream includes all the operations and processes to transform raw materials into finished goods or services, including non-value added activities. Using current state map we can find the non value added activities and we can provide solution to eliminate such non value added activities and improve productivity. Using current state map we can identify the non value added activity in stitching section. We apply some techniques to reduce the manual effort and improve the production rate.
