To be a competitive factory, good management is essential to lower costs, produce a quality product and do it within the established timeline. All this requires efficiently and continuously overseeing the production process and the logistics. Logistics is precisely one of the battlefields that can be key to increasing the efficiency of our processes while also improving our service rates by relying on the lean manufacturing philosophy.
There is a lot of literature on Lean Manufacturing, and how to apply its techniques to proper management, that focus on minimizing the losses of production systems and maximizing the creation of value for the end customer. Therefore, our objective as a factory is to apply it to improve our competitive position for the customer (flexibility and punctuality) by reducing the amount of economic-financial resources used internally.
As part of any company's production process, reducing supply chain times to have less stock and provide THE PRODUCT on time to customers is essential to offering good service. Therefore, setting up a series of production processes that provide value until the final product is ready to be shipped to its destination is essential in a company like ours.
