Production Machining’s new Lean Manufacturing Zone includes both articles and video profiles about machining facilities that are succeeding at lean.
Editor-in-chief Chris Koepfer magazine interviews precision turned parts supplier Vanamatic about the various ways this company makes lean work within a screw-machine environment. See the video.
In other video, Modern Machine Shop editor-in-chief Mark Albert interviews personnel with Richards Industries in Cincinnati, Ohio about three very different lean cells in this facility.
Other resources in this zone include articles on lean-manufacturing concepts such as 5S, setup reduction, value-stream mapping, cells and chaku-chaku—as well as a variety of articles specifically focused on lean in the job shop.
