Abstract

Automation is found to be an efficient way to achieve cost-effective solution in different parts of manufacturing, as well as in the process industry and other industrial areas .Production assembly is generally the largest single cost element of production manufacturing. Ball pen manufacturing requires too many parts to be assembled together, so assembly cost is major component in overall cost of the product. To reduce overall cost of the product it is required to observe each and every assembly process, and analyzed each process with various parameters like efficiency, productivity, lead time, delivery precision, investment cost, capacity, maintenance, running cost. Based on this analyses decision would be made either adopt automatic or manual method for particular assembly process.

Keywords: Ball pen assembly, Automation, Assembly cost.
