Abstract: 

Productivity has been an important concern to all the manufacturing industry. Lean manufacturing emerged as production strategy capable of increasing productivity by identifying and eliminating non value added activities. This article deals with productivity improvement in a Compressor manufacturing industry with a case study using lean concepts with the use of Process flow chart and Time study. The data are collected and analyzed with the use of lean tools namely Value stream mapping, 5S principle, Poka-yoke, Assembly line balancing and Layout design. The new layout is validated by Simulation using promodel shop floor tool.
