Identify the warning signs
High stock levels should be a red flag for production planners. The capital tied up in that stock can be put to much more efficient use, particularly in the case of material-intensive and/or high quality products.
Eliminate complex processing
There are many different ways that time, effort and money are used – and often wasted – in production processes. Heavy lifting, difficult-to-reach materials or unnecessary work stages – to name just a few.
Reduce waiting times
A successful production system is based on carefully planned sequences. Valuable working time is lost if a workstation has to wait for workpieces or individual screws. The same applies to machine downtimes and other technical problems.
Learn from your mistakes
Classic production systems tend to frown on rectifications and errors. They need to be avoided at all costs. By contrast, lean production boasts a fault culture that strives for perfection by learning from mistakes.
