Quality plays a very important role in today's highly competitive industrial environment. Quality leads to an improvement in the productivity. Quality control tools are used to solve more than 90% of the problems faced by the organizations in improving its effectiveness and meeting the customer expectation on a continuous basis. The success of the quality control procedure depends greatly on the method of data collection and its accuracy. Quality control tools are used worldwide in manufacturing industries for continual improvement and are implemented in different steps of manufacturing process to define the problem, measure its impact, finding out its root cause and its removal to ensure the production of non-defective items. The present work includes collection of failure data of intermix and dump mill of a tyre manufacturing unit located in Karnataka. The failure data collected for one year has been analysed to find out the major causes of breakdown. Quality control tools such as Pareto chart, Bar chart, Histogram, Fish bone diagram have been used to find out the root causes and identifying the action plans to eradicate them. Reliability assessment (theoretical) of intermix and dump mill has been conducted using the failure data. The reliability and maintainability curves speak about the present state of working of maintenance department in regard to addressing of breakdown problems and also help in setting future working standards.
