Lean Manufacturing is the philosophy that focuses on designing a production system that eliminates waste. Lean practices focus mainly on seven types of waste that cost companies money. These seven types are waste are:
- Waiting time
Therefore, any automation that enhances the flow of a process and reduces waste is lean. We understand that many ideas just are not practical. Our project managers are usually able to tell you if your idea makes sense in less than a day. The engineers at SAE have developed and implemented many lean manufacturing systems that have succeeded in reducing the seven types of waste.
During the design process, our engineers try to design a machine that is compact, but easy to work on. During the machine building process our technicians and engineers work together to make changes that enhance the quality and functioning ability of the machines we produce. We have helped many companies reach their lean manufacturing goals through automation.
