Lean manufacturing a simple and effective concept has been able to guide many to successful paths. Mr. Yogesh Vaghani, Managing Director, Vedzen Consulting Group shares with Pro MFG Media the importance of lean manufacturing and how the concept helps not only in manufacturing efficiency but also encourages a better life.
The competitive world of manufacturing has introduced numerous concepts to boost the manufacturing industry but currently, the most popular and fascinating is the concept introduced by Toyota- Lean manufacturing. It has garnered immense success and has created productive, efficient, and prosperous business models.
Even though there are numerous reasons for organizations to adopt lean manufacturing, I would like to focus on the four key reasons why an organization must adopt the method.
The methodology has numerous elements that not only improve the concept in general but also provide a path for transformation. Kaizen is an influential aspect of lean manufacturing, as lean manufacturing focuses on eliminating anything which is not required to deliver a quality product or services on time to customers and basically improvising the process dramatically whereas Kaizen is taking small steps eventually leading to significant improvements. The Kaizen philosophy emphasizes implementing it daily not just regularly, taking small steps to focus on reducing and eliminating waste. It helps in creating a people-centric approach, aligning your mind to your vision, thus guiding organizations on the path of transformation and continuous improvements.
