Lean Manufacturing

The moult of stock when they are stored, finished, semi-finished products and raw materials don’t create any added value. On the contrary, excessive stocks increase costs due to the necessary investments for its maintenance. The Muda’s stock is related to the moulting of overproduction. The use of tubular Asystem associated with small improvements and increasing the frequency of deliveries allows to reduce stocks. This is done through the implementation of dynamic type supermarket shelves as closely as possible the line: responsible for maintenance may directly take products at the flow racks for fueling the production line.

It allows sized stores to what is strictly necessary and ensures simple and rapid evolution. The contribution to the Elimination of this molting is the realization of modular supermarkets that evolve according to the reduction of stocks and the evolution of containers. The flexibility of the tubular systems brings the adaptation and optimization of surfaces and ergonomic. The Muda of waiting this molting is generated when the operator no longer has at its disposal parts required for the performance of its task: the hands are unoccupied. The implementation of a line border of type tubular system with small packs eliminates the risk of rupture of provisioning.

This is carried out through the implementation of a new logistics based on a continuous flow and supply chain of regular frequency. Operators can focus on value-added operations while logistics fueling parts in small trains. The Muda of transport the displacement from one place to another of the products does not generate any value creation. On the contrary, transport consumed space and capital. The Lean Manufacturing method proposes that logistic circuits are as short as possible in the factory, between the spring and the supermarket and, later, between the supermarket and the edge of line. This is done through the introduction of new logistics based on flexible trains that allow you to distribute multiple times by teams and one-pass the set of components necessary for the production. The flexibility of a tubular system allows you to design specific wagons for each piece. The implementation of this type of system divided by 3 transportation Muda. The moult of blockbuster the implantation of a Kanban system allows combat the wastage resulting from overproduction. The contribution of a tubular system is the preparation of supermarkets JIT customizable as closely as possible the line.
