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 layouts.

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.
