The Elimination of the Lean Manufacturing moults has identified 7 waste or moults. The Lean Manufacturing building can only be developed if its base is constructed first. Without using a very flexible and modular system that allows the removal of the seedlings and the implementation of Kaizen skills at the factory, it is impossible to foresee the later stages of the Lean Manufacturing which are the standardization of the work, the sequencing (Heijunka) and, later, the JIT and the JIDOKA. The systematic use of tubular systems acts as a catalyst for the policy of reducing waste and as a tool for implementation of Kaizen attitudes, continuous improvement. The Muda of treatment using small boxes of front provisioning allows you to reduce the length of the line, source of saving overhead costs and reducing costs and driving times. The moult of the rejections rejections generate costs and loss of time for the company, require the implementation of a system of touch-ups particularly unproductive.
Rid of waste is even more expensive. The disposal of waste passes do not generate them. Which means that it should create an environment and an adapted ergonomics: parts and tools in place, within the immediate reach of the operations. This reduces the risks of strokes, falls and manufacturing defects. Structures with tubular systems custom design allows a limitation of the volume of generated waste and natural and evolutionary management of residual waste. The moult of displacement displacement and useless movements at the workplace do not create any added value.
On the contrary, they increase the difficulties of the work and consume space. Tubular systems, modular architecture allows the configuration of jobs that enable the taking of parts as closely as possible in the hands of the operator. This helps reduce the non value added generated by useless movements. Increases operator productivity, decrease the difficulties of work: the operator activity focuses on productive tasks.
