With demand for automobiles expected to post strong growth numbers in the coming months, the country’s largest car manufacturer, Maruti Suzuki India Ltd (MSIL), is looking at ways to ease capacity constraints to enable 15-20 per cent more output by 2011-12.
The company has set up a flexi-line at its Gurgaon facility. The line will become operational in January and churn out 200 vehicles daily. With this, monthly production will rise to around 115,000 units from the present 110,000 units. More such measures are planned for implementation in the course of next year.
As opposed to an assembly line, designed to develop a specified set of products, a flexi-line can be used to roll out any model in accordance with demand. For instance, the Swift, Dzire and SX4 are made on the same line at the Manesar plant. At Gurgaon, a flexi-line is dedicatedly being put to use to churn out additional units of the company’s best-selling car, the Alto. Maruti sell 32,000 units of the Alto every month.
MSIL has three flexi-lines at its Gurgaon plant and two at Manesar.
