In this work, an investigation is carried out in a packaging industry, particularly in dispatch section, using work measurement techniques. Operations in the plant were observed, and a standard process flow is designed so as to minimize unnecessary movements and delay. Further, as an outcome of time study, operating cycle time is fixed for both rim packaging and box packaging procedures using line balancing approach. Finally, the daily production target is revised based on the results. The work is aimed at planning the production output for industries having a product mix using time study techniques.
