For more than a quarter century Lean Manufacturing has been focused on plant floor process improvement. While these efforts have eliminated waste in the operation, rarely have pricing elements been considered part of a value stream mapping (VSM).
Continuous improvement tools can enhance and streamline your lean manufacturing process. Leveraging the right tool at the right time can increase your profitability, reduce process errors and improve productivity.
There is now an affordable pricing optimization solution for small and midsized manufacturers; this transformation will allow even the smallest manufacturer to utilize lean principles in the pricing process immediately.
As a systematic way to increase efficiency and better please customers, lean principles run counter to traditional mass-production practices. Yet, they allow small and medium businesses to consistently increase quality while decreasing costs.
The 6 S system is a modified version of the Lean Manufacturing principle of 5 S. Developed by Taiichi Ohno, an industrial engineer for Toyota, Lean Production is a systemic method designed to optimize the efficiency of a business.
Lean manufacturing primarily focuses on eliminating waste of different kinds. Let us look at the seven 'wastes that plague various industrial processes and how you can eliminate them by using industrial scales.
Some of the challenges that manufacturers face to accomplish lean manufacturing are introducing a manufacturing cost reduction model; the optimization of material and product flow; site planning and expansion; the design of a risk management system
Nothing beats the positioning accuracy of linear encoders from HEIDENHAIN. Available in absolute and incremental versions and ideal for a variety of applications-including machine tools, semiconductor machines and medical machines-these measuring solutions combat a variety of issues that erode precision.
