Abstract

Today markets, it has turned into a single global market as a result of the merger of local markets. Therefore, serious competition conditions have arisen among the producers. In this competitive environment, reducing production costs is the most important factor in order to be one step ahead of others. For this reason, manufacturers must keep all production stages under control within the scope of a constantly innovative and improvable production process. One of these processes is work study analysis. Which operation? In how much time? It should be clearly defined by whom it will be made on the production lines. These definitions basically need to be applicable, measurable and sustainable. The study in this paper covers the standard time optimization activity of the time study process, which is one of the work study components in a part of the production lines in the paint shop of an automobile factory. A rotation was applied between workstations to determine the most efficient state. As a result of the time analyzes made on the existing line, the bottleneck factors were identified, and new assignments were made to the production line according to the working experience and physical abilities of the employees, and the production line was rearranged according to the optimum standard time. Although there was no significant difference between the first average standard time of the production line and the last average standard time of the line rearranged, a slight decrease in the production cycle time was detected. It is seen that this process will yield more efficient results if time studies are made and recorded with more advanced equipment such as video recording, instead of using various lean production tools such as Kaizen for continuous improvement and time measurement with a stopwatch. The study also emphasizes the importance of new production methods developed with today's developing materials and equipment.
