The coating process is the process for covering up to the surface outer of catheter. This study was conducted in order to reduce the time for coating process in manufacturing catheter by using the process flow method. This study will focus on the process flow that required a long time to coating the catheter. The coating process is observed at the location where it often happens in order to find out the causes of the decreased in time. Based on the observation, several potential causes and problem is identified which can lead to the increasing time for coating process. In order to encounter this problem, the testing methods are used. From the potential causes that identified, the testing methods will be used to find the root cause of the problem. The improvement will be implemented at the coating process and the data before and after improvement are analysed in order to identify the time coating of catheter has been reduce and thus will increases the quality of the product.
