Lean manufacturing is a systematic approach for identifying and eliminating waste in operations through continuous improvement for doing everything more efficiently, reducing the cost of operating the system and fulfilling the customers desire for maximum value at the lowest price.

 

Lean manufacturing evolved out of lean thinking, the antidote to waste (muda). Waste specifically means any activity which absorbs resources but creates no value and lean thinking provides a way to specify value, line up value-creating actions in the best sequence, conduct these activities with less and less human effort, less equipment, less time, and less space, while coming closer and closer to providing customers with exactly what they want Lean manufacturing is a management philosophy focusing on reduction of the seven wastes to improve overall customer value< size=3>< face="Times New Roman">:

  • Transportation

  • Inventory

  • Motion

  • Waiting time

  • Over-production

  • Processing Itself

  • Defective Product (Scrap in manufactured products or any type of business.)

By eliminating waste (muda), quality is improved, production time and costs are reduced

Lean is about more than just cutting costs in the factory. One crucial insight is that most costs are assigned when a product is designed. Often an engineer will specify familiar, safe materials and processes rather than inexpensive, efficient ones. This reduces project risk, that is, the cost to the engineer, while increasing financial risks, and decreasing profits. Good organizations develop and review checklists to review product designs.

 

M.E. lean manufacturing is offered in P.S.G.College of Technology Coimbatore
