LEAN Manufacturing and 5S Methodology Process Improvements
LEAN manufacturing is all about eliminating waste from the manufacturing process and getting back to basics. Each step needs to happen in the most logical and careful order to ensure maximum efficiency.
Every team member needs to understand their role in the process and be so familiar with their tasks that everything needs to be second nature. This is achieved through clear and informative signage, symbols and labels, so all staff members understand the flow. The process needs to be easily repeatable and become intuitive.
