Lean Manufacturing Expert Talks Eliminates Unnecessary Movements with Help from Modular Tubing

Unnecessary movement at the manufacturing cellular level, production working area, is one of the seven wastes and represents a non-value-added loss, according to Ed Brown, founder of Topper Tube, a division of Topper Industrial.

The Topper Tube system includes a wide range of interchangeable tubular components, brackets, castors, and accessories that can be used to create storage racks, carts, trolleys, and workstations adapted and reconfigured as required. This flexibility delivers greater cost effectiveness and lower overall cost of ownership than comparable devices made from welded steel or similar materials. Chris Mosby, a lean expert with Topper Industrial noted, “Beyond selling carts and tubing we offer practical advice how to introduce lean principles to any manufacturing production process ensuring elimination of waste, improve performance, and reduce lead times and lower costs.”

All the movement to bring product to the lines adds time and costs to complete a task; it translates to quantifiable reduced productivity. Walk time is a simple calculation. When labor must walk to retrieve tools, equipment, and components, time and safety are compromised. The ideal state for a process (value stream) or product should remove or minimize as much waste as possible before closing the project.

The other wastes are also impacted with the used of modular flexible solutions including elimination of over production. Too often, due to imprecise product to line sequencing, manufacturers build excess quantity of units more than the customer needs or is willing to pay. The excuse for over production is often blamed on long set-up times, long lead times, and complex assembly. Through synchronized staging, eliminating fork trucks, and carts delivering to flexible modular tubing assembly station the over-production is eliminated.
