In India there are many foundries have followed conventional and manual operations.  Standards keep persisting in the minds of Quality Personnel from time to time. Today’s competitive environment has, more productivity in less time, lower manufacturing cost and improve quality product, defect free operation are required to follow to every foundry staff.

The paper presents analysis of these defects with Pareto and Cause and Effect diagrams to know correct cause and correct remedial factors to improve quality level and productivity of organization. In the present global and competitive environment foundry industries needs to perform efficiently with minimum number of rejections.  In industrial environment there is no end to the quality.  When the quality is focus we keep practicing our experimenting and thereby tend to improve quality, thus setting the benchmark. 

Majority foundries are failed to maintain a satisfactory quality control level. Defect free castings with minimum production cost have become the need of the foundries. The move toward taken by this paper is expected to motivate the foundries to use a standard classification system to describe undesirable casting artifacts for more useful failure analysis. Any reduce in the waste and rework also positively influences the environmental impact of our industry.

In this paper its deals the various aspects of an organized approach to understanding and development of quality cost system in cast iron foundries. This study is improved the quality and productivity of entire process of casting manufacturing.

In today’s world IATF 16949:2016 is a standard that establishes the requirements for a Quality Management System (QMS), specifically for the automotive sector. The ISO/TS 16949 was originally created in 1999 to harmonize different assessment and certification schemes worldwide in the supply chain for the automotive sector.
