East Granby, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/09/2015 -- Picking Perfection newsletter reported that, the recent issue of Manufacturing.net, Curt Schmidgall, Winegard Value Stream Manager, shared the lean continuous manufacturing model has surged in popularity over the last 20 years because of its ability to eliminate waste of all kinds: excess inventory, over-transportation, and unnecessary movement and motion. However, the most significant results from implementing this model come not from discrete changes to certain products or processes, but from incorporating the entire company into the lean continuous model journey. In traditionally structured companies, the engineering, manufacturing, and sales departments work in their own silos, in different groups and often in different buildings. As a result, these departments communicate little with each other, and each group makes the decisions that support their own self-interest.
Pcdata USA believes to succeed with lean manufacturing, a company should be reorganized by a value stream. This structure means the company is split up into smaller companies, with each "company" focused on specific markets and customers. Each company consists of engineers, manufacturers, and salespeople sitting together and working in close proximity on how to design, order and sell a product that best serves the customer.
