The purpose of this study is to provide empiricalevidence about the application of MCE as a measuring instrument in improving productionefficiencies and in controlling non value added activities at industrial enterprises.Based on the analysis of the MCE, the result shows that the company is notable to reduce non-value-added activities after rejuvenation of machines because thereis a lot of grunt work. The production process is still not running smoothly because alot of improvements still need to be done. Improvements during the production processresulting in decreased production process and waste a lot of waiting time.
