Developing a novel based productivity model by investigating potential bounds of production plant

Zahid Hussain

Abstract

Productivity level is based on reliability impression which is the primary aspect of the automatic assembly line for continuous production. Productivity forecasting is a professional tool helping to enhance production system and attain the client petition by using precise model. Due to mechanisms complexity of assembly lines, analysis of failure factors contributes a significant role for investigating potential bounds that require analytical approach to compare the current and proposed model of productivity effects. The issues related to the production losses need additional space for improvement of the productivity model which may not present a close comparison between the current and proposed productivity rate. The main purpose of this paper is to develop a novel based productivity model that will predict alternatives for the availability of assembly line workspaces pertain to an automobile tire manufacturing plant. For investigating the potential bounds of the productivity losses, DMAIC and PACE techniques were used. It was revealed that the novel productivity model yielded better results of 3.358% errors showing its accuracy as compared to real productivity level at different workspaces.
