Abstract:

To increase the productivity of the plant it is necessary that it should have proper material handling system which fulfills the customer need at the desired time. To implement the effective material handling system in a crusher unit of Sponge Iron plant is considered in order to evaluate the efficiency of plant layout and material handling equipment. Analyses are performed in problematic areas with the help of drawing fish bone diagram such that it can be eliminate barriers to achieve the goal of the plant. The analysis of AHP model is performed for selection of the material handling equipment by driving the contextual correlation of alternatives to develop the effective layout for material handling system and on the basis of it Framework layout is prepared so that it can be implemented to achieve the goal for the industry. In other words, given the importance (or weight) of each criteria (Material, Move and Method), the Conveyor is preferable with overall priority of 0.619, compared to the Industrial Truck whose overall priority of 0.264 and compared to the Loader with the overall priority of 0.114. On the basis of it the layout is proposed with the increase in plant layout efficiency from 66.67% to 120%, and the plant layout has improvement of 79.99% with the reduction in transportation length of 52.50%. According to the detailed analysis, the choice depends upon which type of facility layout to be adopted has a significant impact on the long-term success of a firm.
