The philosophy and techniques of lean manufacturing are related to how processes and methods of manufacture are designed.

Waste Caused in Manufacturing

There are several sources of waste in manufacturing activities.

The Process of Adding Value

It is necessary that the customer sees a higher value in the product compared to other alternative products.

Transition to Flow Paths

The process of organizing machinery and equipment on the basis of products and flow paths.

Manufacturing Systems

The objectives when designing and planning a manufacturing system.

Flow Paths and Efficiency

A consequence of the transition to flow paths in the material flow is a gradual improvement in the efficiency of the operation.

Improving the Production Process

The processing flow can be improved by physically changing production processes.

Job Design

Job design is an important part of a company’s operating strategy because it defines the amount of flexibility needed in the work force.

Part 3

Production Activity Control

It is responsible for executing the master production schedule and the material requirement plan.

Manufacturing Systems and Production Control

There are a variety of systems for production activity control dependent on the manufacturing process.

The Principle of Takt-driven Production

Instead of maximizing the speed of work, Lean Production focuses on meeting customers’ needs in time.

Scheduling System Options

There are two basic approaches to scheduling systems for material planning: material requirements planning and just in time.

Manufacturing Lead Time

Manufacturing lead-time is the time normally required to produce an item in a typical lot quantity.

Reduction of Manufacturing Lead Time

Scheduling methods which can be used to reduce manufacturing lead time.

Process Flexibility

Process flexibility is desirable so the company can react swiftly to changes in the volume and mix of their products.

Setup Time in Production

Setup time is the time it takes to set up a machine to process a new product.

Focus on Setup Times

A successful Just-in-Time system usually involves placing an emphasis on reducing setup times.

Managing Bottlenecks

Scheduling and controlling the bottlenecks is extremely important for the throughput of a system.
