What are Lean Manufacturing Process Layouts?
Manufacturing process layouts are an important focus in
Lean organizations because they are often full of
inefficiencies that lead to wasted time, effort and
materials. The first step in rethinking a
manufacturing layout is collecting data about the existing
process. Information such as machine load, takt time,
equipment reliability, set-up time, yields, and staffing
requirements are necessary inputs for redesigning process
With data on the existing process, new layouts can be
considered in order to minimize cycle time and travel
distance and simulate a continuous flow process. Each
scenario will present unique challenges (process flow,
physical constraints and support systems) that will need to
be considered as the ideal process flow is developed.
Lean manufacturing Process Layout Online Training
This course explores sources and formats for collecting
and analyzing data for lean efforts and shows how to use
that data to design process flow patterns and physical
layout options leading to lean practices.
