Automate Your Way To Lean Manufacturing
Make your manufacturing processes more competitive through automation.
Modern control and automation systems combine management and production levels, helping companies automate their way to success.
Experts have estimated that less than 5% of the steps and time taken in producing a product actually create customer value.
“Lean” thinking is a proven system for product development, mass production and other business areas to remove bottlenecks and reduce non-value-adding wastes, enabling a faster flow of value to your customers.
This whitepaper is for businesses keen to move towards lean principals. If you’re on the path already, you may have discovered that implementing lean is not as cut and dried as it might seem, because while you can effectively apply the principles through most of your manufacturing environment, the packaging area remains a black hole. That’s because in-depth visibility is mostly non-existent. And what you can’t see and measure, you can’t manage and improve.
This whitepaper explores lean, how to implement it and how solutions such as iDSnet can remove the “packaging black hole” and help you drive continuous improvement. It also details:
- use of machine vision for quality assurance
- how to automate to achieve greater efficiency
- how to implement OEE measures in the packaging hall
