Customer value through Lean Manufacturing
"If it doesn't provide value for the customer, then it is considered wasteful and should be eliminated", is the approach of Lean Manufacturing.
Non-value added practices and waste have been eliminated. ORMEC delivers high quality motion control systems and products consistently and repeatedly by instituting a wide variety of lean manufacturing concepts.
Point of Use Inventory
Consistency of products is improved when commonly used materials are within hand's reach of the operator. Hand tools, schematics, test equipment and other items required to build products are quickly available when needed.
Single Piece Flow
Quality is improved; work in process is reduced; less physical workspace is required; and waste is eliminated by using this method.
Entire assemblies are built from start to finish and tested without batching similar operations.
Productivity and speed of manufacture are increased when small "supermarkets" of strategically identified assemblies are maintained.
Replenishment of raw materials is efficiently coordinated using a visual kanban system.
On-time deliveries are met while maintaining low finished goods inventories.
