Abstract – This project mainly focuses on improving overall efficiency of manufacturing line in small industries. By reducing the cycle time and distribution of work load at each work station by line balancing. The methodology adopted includes reduction of cycle time of process, identifying the man power, calculating total work load on station and distribution of work load to each workstation by using line balancing technique, in order to improve the efficiency of production line and increase overall productivity of the industry. This technique is implemented by, rearrange the existing machine layout and analyzing the manpower to the machining process, reduce the overall cycle time and finally give the new proposed layout to increase the productivity.

Keywords— line balancing (LB), cycle time reduction, proposed layout, productivity improvement, manpower
