Effective planning and designing of manufacturing processes and equipment helps in achieving optimum productivity through maximum utilization of the resources available leading to least possible industrial wastage thus resulting in low production cost. The aim of this paper is to study the implementation of industrial engineering tools in a paint industry. This study started with observing the standard operation procedures and understanding the existing process flow. At the same time, observations at the production line were made to identify problems and areas of possible improvements. Time study, method study and layout study techniques formed an integrated platform to help identify and rectify the time lost in unnecessary movements of labor and tools which resulted in long machine idle time. The packaging method used was conventional and time consuming which was simplified. There were suggestions proposed how redesigning of the process flow and efficient material handling could save idle time for machines, how replacing the old packaging method with use of zip ties would require less manpower and could help mitigate the non-value added activities, thereby resulting in improved productivity of the industry.

Keywords: Work Study, Method Study, Time Study, Layout Study, Productivity, Material Handling Improvement.
