£31.99

Synopsis

Cell manufacturing takes traditional process-based production environments and creates right-sized smaller work areas that have all of the essential workstations and equipment needed to produce the product.



Until now, there has been a need for a book with step-by-step guidelines on how to implement cell manufacturing, also known as work cells. Complete with color images, The Cell Manufacturing Playbook: A Step-by-Step Guideline for the Lean Practitioner fills this need.



This new book in The LEAN Playbook Series is ideal for Lean practitioners and facilitators looking for a training tool that can be used in the work area while improvements are being made.



Like a football coach, you can use this playbook for quick reference to convey what's needed to facilitate effective work cell implementation. If for some reason you forget a "play", you can easily reference the playbook. You can follow page by page and use the playbook to facilitate successful work cells, or you can go directly to certain topics and use it to help you implement that particular "play."



The playbook includes color pictures, examples, and 3D models from actual work cell implementations. In addition to the images, a combination of short paragraphs and bulleted points walk you through the process of implementing work cells to bring about remarkable changes in your organization.



Although the book wastes little time on high-level theory, it does include an introductory portion that provides the foundation in the 8 Wastes and Lean metrics needed to fully benefit from this playbook. Coverage includes time studies, line balancing, standard work, single piece flow, takt time, and workstation design.
