When we consider lean assembling we consider work cells, kanban cards, TQM et cetera. Be that as it may, numerous individuals complete a fundamental mix-up. That is the oversight of not understanding the ideas on which lean assembling based on. Numerous individuals who replicated lean assembling fizzled in light of the fact that they didn’t comprehended the ideas driving lean assembling.
We should give a basic definition to lean assembling before we go further. Lean assembling can be characterized as a methodical way to deal with ceaselessly recognize and expel the losses from the framework. Every one of the devices and procedures depend on satisfaction of this basic necessity.
To distinguish the reasonable distinction between lean assembling and ordinary assembling, we will observe the definition given above. There is an imperative word to note. That is “Evacuating”. Expelling of waste from the framework won’t not sound altogether different to minimization of squanders in the framework, what we talk in customary assembling. Be that as it may, think precisely. These two words are altogether different with regards to assembling (or even administrations).
When you consider limiting of waste, you are pondering the present framework where you have squanders. You consider limiting those losses by adjusting the framework. When you consider dispensing with or expelling squanders from the framework, you should discover the foundations for the squanders and expel them from the framework. This implies you should reclassify the procedure in a route that there are no squanders created. So in the principal case you live in the framework where there are squanders, and battle to get some change. In the later, you change the framework with the goal that framework itself won’t have the squanders. Aren’t they extremely extraordinary?
I will give you one more case to elucidate the reasonable distinction between lean assembling and customary assembling. Consider Work In Progress (WIP). In a customary assembling process WIP is dealt with as a benefit which runs the procedure easily. Lean assembling however, regards WIP as a waste itself. Further, lean assembling regards WIP as a mirror which mirrors the blemish of the framework.
I can continue forever clarifying applied contrasts these frameworks have. Be that as it may, it is essential to comprehend one thing about lean assembling. Lean assembling isn’t a tweaking to the customary assembling framework you had. It is a totally unique framework. To have the capacity to execute lean assembling accurately, comprehend the theoretical contrasts between lean assembling and conventional assembling.
