Abstract: In manufacturing sectors – Production using available resources in most effective manner is very important. This work is done under a well know automotive manufacturing subsidiaries in India, Goa. In view of highly competitive market, company is in phase change of shifting Conventional machine to man assisted automatic machines from japan. Effective utilization of the machine and man is very important. Workstation minimization and rate of production maximization are important goals. This paper represents the evaluation of machine cycle time reduction using value based mapping. In this work unlike only evaluating each man elements, machine elements in detail with respect to value added to product is analyzed. Also, this study guides the company engineering department in order restore the machine to its required productivity after scheduled Maintenance.
