Make lean manufacturing a productive reality
Lean manufacturing and today's intelligent, flexible automation can work well together—and Bosch Rexroth has the experience and resources to show you how to effectively use automation to make lean manufacturing a productive reality in your operations.
In this kit, we provide case studies, detailed guidebooks, links to lean manufacturing podcasts and online software tools—resources specially created and selected to connect you with Rexroth's deep insights into the "elements" that make lean production and automation technology an important component in today's successful manufacturing businesses:
- Lean manufacturing is "pull" production, driven by customer or marketplace demand
- Lean optimizes flow: material flow, people flow and information flow
- Machine automation enhances lean systems when applied to high-volume, highly predictable production
Included in this kit is a new lean technical paper: "Lean production and automation: How to find the right mix". It explores how lean principles are applied to identify and eliminate waste in manufacturing, and provides a detailed decision matrix to help determine the right level of automation for any production process. When you're ready to make your move and implement lean manufacturing, we're set to help.
