ICS Group is a corporation focusing in Seafood Industry with shrimps and fishes as its main products. With integrated and widespread operation in most locations in Indonesia, ICS Group attempts to give their best service and the highest quality products through its 3E philosophy: Excellent Product, Excellent People, and Excellent Services as an effort to achieve customer satisfaction.
Unfortunately, ICS has a problem in balancing between production rate and the increasing wage rate of the labors. While the wage rates keep increasing every year, company’s production is not increasing. Hence, the percentage of the labor cost in cost of good manufacture keep increasing over the time. Moreover, labors in ICS factory are mostly high school graduates or lower. Hence the knowledge of how important safety and ergonomic aspect become unimportant for them while doing their daily job. It became a concern for the company to create a better working environment, to reduce the number of accidents which will reduce the number of labors that can’t come to work because of it.
The high number of workers that cannot come to work will reduce the production rate of PT ICS. Hence, the cost of good manufacture in PT ICS is high. Determining from that point, it is become a good point to redesign the work station in the factory. Which can possibly reduce the number of workers ill due to work and increase the production speed. In designing new station, we can consider both ergonomic and production speed, moreover both ergonomic and production speed have linear effect.
Using motion time study, the non-value-added activities can be detected and reduced or removed from the production process. Also, the new design will follow the ergonomic safety principal which will be assessed by the company before creating the new design.
