Abstract

Metal casting is one of the most important manufacturing process technologies and is defined as a process in which molten or liquid metal is poured into a mould. Today, metal casting components are found in over 90 percent of manufactured goods and equipment, from critical component for aircraft and automotive industries to home applications as well as construction machineries. In a high competitive market, the productivity improvement is very important. The main aim of this work is to study the productivity improvement in Kuwait Steel Company using ergonomics factors such as noise and temperature. It is concluded that by considering the ergonomics the quality of products has improved and the productivity increased. It was found that, the productivity improved by 0.45 % for controlling the temperature and 0.80 % by controlling the noises.
