The paper outlines how On-Time Delivery is to be improved by using Lean concepts. For this purpose lean tools are used because lean focus on the continuous improvement of a company towards the ideal through the relentless reduction of waste. Lean tool such as Value Stream Mapping are used to reduce Lead time. We have studied production process of one product and drawn the current state value stream map. From the current data analysis we found out the problems as high Lead time and Inventory. We implemented Kanban system to reduce the lead time, Inventory and provide a future state value stream map. Production schedule is fixed and by this On-time Delivery is Improved.
