Cellular Flow Manufacturing
Discover how to link and balance operations to reduce lead times, minimize WIP, optimize floor space usage, and improve productivity using a five-step process for designing and implementing work cells.

Experience the results of Cellular/Flow Manufacturing principles in this program as you apply them yourself in a lifelike simulation.

First, you will earn the concepts of Cellular/Flow Manufacturing. Then, you will help transform the traditional batch production area to a cellular layout. You will be stunned by the dramatic changes in the way the product flows, so that customer demand is met-on time, every time.

When processes are balanced, the product flows continuously and customer demands are easily met. Cellular/Flow Manufacturing is the linking of manual and machine operations into the most efficient combination of resources to maximize value-added content while minimizing waste.

Take all five classes to earn the certificate:

Pull/Kanban System

Standard Work & Error Proofing

Problem Solving Using PDCA, A3, and Root Cause Analysis

Kaizen Event Facilitation
