Synopses & Reviews
This work presents the fundamental principles of continuous flow manufacturing, furnishing a corporate strategy and set of operating rules that help create an environment where continuous flow manufacturing can flourish. A 10-step methodology for converting a traditional factory to a continuous flow operation is provided, and conventional manufacturing techniques are compared with the continuous flow approach.
Book News Annotation:
The architect under whom the Caterpillar company converted 18 of its factories to continuous flow manufacturing synthesizes and evaluates the information he has gathered from over 100 companies both before and after that effort. He discusses the business initiatives that compete with and complement the approach, the fundamental principles, the operating rules necessary to create an environment in which it will flourish, the vital preparatory actions, the technology and systems required, justification for the capital investment, and a methodology for modernizing an existing facility. Includes a glossary.
