Unique coverage of manufacturing management techniquescompletewith cases and real-world examples.Improving Production with Lean Thinking picks up where otherreferences on production processes leave off. It is increasinglyimportant to integrate and systematize lean thinking throughoutproduction/manufacturing and the supply chain because the market isbecoming more competitive, products are becoming more complex, andproduct life is getting shorter and shorter. With a practicalfocus, this book encompasses the science and analytical backgroundfor improving manufacturing, control, and design. It coversspecific methodologies and tools for:* Material flow and facilities layout, including a six step layoutdesign process* The design of cellular layouts* Analyzing and improving equipment efficiency, includingPoka-Yoke, motion study, maintenance, SMED, and more* Environmental improvements, including 5S implementation With real-life case studies of successful European and Americanapproaches to lean manufacturing, this reference is ideal forengineers, managers, and researchers in manufacturing andproduction facilities as well as students. It bridges the gapbetween production/manufacturing and supply chain techniques andprovides a detailed roadmap to improved factory performance.
