  Abstract:  

Lean as an industrial paradigm has proved to be of significant benefit in the manufacturing industry. This paper aims to report on the introduction of takt-time to an industrial plant with the emphasis on the improved adaptability of manufacturing process to the market situation. The study finds that the operations which were not optimised, like packaging operation, represented a bottleneck and were not harmonised with the takt time dictated by customers. Unbalanced manufacturing cell caused delays in supplying the products to customers, increased their dissatisfaction, inventories in the manufacturing process and number of low quality products. A designed takt time model based on the shop-floor approach is one promising alternative to solving such problems.
