What is cellular manufacturing, and why is it useful? Paul Lindsay, Vice President of Sales at Camcraft, explains in this new video.
A traditional machine shop has departments. A material comes in and goes to Department A, then it sits around until someone comes around and brings it to Department B.
There’s a better way, and that way is cellular manufacturing. You get a single piece flow that eliminates redundant activity and wasted time.
The long term benefits—teamwork, camaraderie, focus—strengthen over time. Combine this collaboration with the efficiency of cellular manufacturing, and you get quality levels you just don’t see in traditional departments.
