1.1 Right First Time Right First Time (RFT) is the measure for proportion of rejection versus total attempts made. It is taken as a predictive approach from the conventional reactive approach. It is very simple and effective principle which aims to sharpen the knowledge of processes and to identify and concentrate on the parameters that are critical to product or service quality. RFT helps to eliminate post inspection by producing parts or delivering service right first time.  It is calculated by dividing the number of pieces rejected by total number of pieces attempted.  The total number of pieces attempted will consist of all good pieces and rejected pieces.  The pieces rejected will be consist of all parts scrapped or reworked going to…show more content…
It is a niche segment of the retail industry. Demand for mosquito repellant products has been steadily increasing as a result of rise in health awareness and literacy levels. Current market size is estimated to be Rs. 10000 Cr approx. New players are induced to enter the market due to huge potential and low level of penetration. Mosquito repellents are generally available in coils, vaporizers, aerosols, paper cards and creams…show more content…
Paper is first dosed with active chemicals. Then they are cut in to pieces and bound in a booklet. Then final cutting is done. Further it is going to be packed in flow wrap. Cutting of the paper is the most vital step where there is no option for rework for cut papers. It is also difficult job to scrap those cut papers as they are dosed with active chemicals. There are strict regulatory guidelines which we need to follow during the manufacturing as well as managing the stocks. The Right First Time (RFT) in paper based mosquito repellant manufacturing meant that at each of the process step quality will be achieved the first time. Adopting the RFT will help in achieving shorter lead times and to improve competitiveness. The work presents the manufacturing of paper based mosquito repellant product. The company is facing production losses and tedious scraping exercise. We used Six Sigma DMAIC methodology to improve the RFT, thus eliminating production loss and delay in dispatches. The following chapter provides brief overview of the DMAIC methodology of Six Sigma, which is the framework for the thesis. In the last chapter, the application of DMAIC methodology and the results achieved are
