Lean work cells balance and optimize operator and machine contributions to a manufacturing process by simplifying material flow and eliminating waste. Use of a well executed lean cell line can greatly improve production efficiency and help to eliminate product failures. Jewett Automation has a strong background in developing lean work cells that focus on the following:
- Operator ergonomics
- Mistake-proof assembly methods (Poke-yoke)
- Optimizing cycle rates
- Minimizing work in progress (WIP)
- Balancing work content
- Kanban systems for efficient component delivery
We’ve had a broad range of experience constructing lean work cell systems for automotive, consumer products, medical devices and filtration production. If you would like to see how your production needs might benefit from a lean approach, give us a call a call or send us an email.
