Unique coverage of manufacturing management techniques--complete
with cases and real-world examples.
Improving Production with Lean Thinking picks up where other
references on production processes leave off. It is increasingly
important to integrate and systematize lean thinking throughout
production/manufacturing and the supply chain because the market is
becoming more competitive, products are becoming more complex, and
product life is getting shorter and shorter. With a practical
focus, this book encompasses the science and analytical background
for improving manufacturing, control, and design. It covers
specific methodologies and tools for:
* Material flow and facilities layout, including a six step layout
* The design of cellular layouts
* Analyzing and improving equipment efficiency, including
Poka-Yoke, motion study, maintenance, SMED, and more
* Environmental improvements, including 5S implementation
With real-life case studies of successful European and American
approaches to lean manufacturing, this reference is ideal for
engineers, managers, and researchers in manufacturing and
production facilities as well as students. It bridges the gap
between production/manufacturing and supply chain techniques and
provides a detailed roadmap to improved factory performance.
