As a manufacturer, we always look for methods that make things quicker, cheaper, and simpler. Often, the approach we use involves re-evaluating in-plant production elements that hinder system flow. In such an analysis, we strive for the efficiency of the components. In short, in order to increase productivity while responding quickly to rapidly changing customer needs, we strive to take full advantage of our resources at our factory. In doing so, the modern manufacturer performs a full enterprise resource planning (ERP) that ensures that all plant elements are synchronized with each other. Thanks to ERP design as a production concept, the focus of the management of the work center is at the center of the most efficient sites.
Although pull-production techniques are sure to be done in just-in-time (JIT) production modes, efficiency gains in other business operations sometimes lose expensive deployment and non-productive business space time. To overcome these negatives, the slim cell has been designed to exploit duplicate unit production and physical plant space utilization. Based on sensitive ergonomic principles, slim cell operators are very close to each other – so close to passing each other's pieces. In a classy sleek work plane, the ERP operation maximizes production efficiency through the most basic strict principles:
- Continuous flow : Shadow panels for use of devices and pre-fabrication of the material into the cell, the lean workplace eliminates most non-value-added operator movements (i.e. direct costs). In other words, the sleek cell becomes the efficiency site where value adding creates added value.
- Setup and Conversion Efficiency : Separating recurring manufacturing processes to a single space can significantly reduce configuration and cell reconfiguration costs and time. This leads to a maximum changeover, with minimal downtimes in the reliably uninterrupted operating current.
- Better Quality : Through quality control, with immediate feedback, lean cells reduce waste and improve continuous development – the lean manufacturing principle. In addition, use simple, slim machines in the cell, and replacement of defective devices is usually quick and easy.
- JIT Delivery : Not only parts arrive in the cell if needed but fast single (or small) large amounts of lean cell production means that pull production maximizes the flow of the system at each step. In addition, non-cyclical work is performed by out-of-staff support staff. All of these factors contribute to the elimination of inventory and ongoing work.
Finally, in ERP operations, the proper use of the lean cell system significantly reduces the production cycle time. From the receipt of the order to the ordering employee until the finished products are shipped, the production time is reduced and the JIT pull is increased. In addition, with the minimal cost direct costs of ergonomic continuous flow planning, lean cell production increases all important baselines.
