Lean Manufacturing: A Primer


Lean manufacturing emphasizes the minimization of the amount of all the resources (including time) used in the various activities of the enterprise. The typical areas of hidden waste are over-production, waiting, transportation, over-processing, motion, excessive inventory, and defective units.

information lean manufacturing eam  while waiting for instructions, information, raw materials, or any other resources. Wasteful waiting ties up capital, increases the risk of obsolescence or damage, and often requires additional handling and movement of goods. Transportation . Unneeded movements occur when, instead of processes being sequential or positioned next to each other, they are physically far apart, and require moving and handling devices to be repeatedly repositioned for the next step in the process. Over-processing . Poor proces Read More
