Lean Manufacturing

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.

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.

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.
