What is a Lean Manufacturing Study?
Our expert lean consultants observe operations with a keen eye towards process improvement and removal of non-value-added operations to create a more efficient environment from start to finish.
Lean manufacturing focuses on examining 8 areas to identify wasted effort, materials, and time. These areas include transportation, inventory, motion, waiting, over production, over processing, defects, and skills.
Takt time and customer requirements are quantified while workcells and system layouts are optimized to focus on efficient resource utilization, value added activities, synchronous material flow, and shortened lead times.
Advanced analytics fuel design iterations that improve processes, utilizing the latest technology and material handling automation options available.
