Lean Manufacturing is a set of rules, guidelines, tools & techniques which has been developed to optimize business performance. Lean Manufacturing can be applied to every business and every process within that business; it is not restricted to the manufacturing sector.
The concept of Lean Manufacturing is quiet simple and somewhat that of common sense. Anything that does not add value to the final product gets eliminated as waste.
Lean Manufacturing is about doing more with less time, inventory space, people and money and getting it right the first time around.
Dix Manufacturing Group first became involved with Lean manufacturing in 2009. Following this inception, the organisation has enjoyed many benefits some of which include improvements in material flow with reduced waste and higher quality control. Other benefits exhibited are increased team work and staff moral and higher levels of respect for fellow members and the workplace.
