Lean manufacturing is a recipe for success

Despite three horrible years that included a recall saga and a devastating tsunami, by the end of January of this year, Japan-based automobile manufacturer Toyota will have its full production up and running again. This is all thanks to Toyota’s TPS (Toyota Production System) which has greatly helped the company’s recent comeback.

The TPS model aims to eliminate waste in seven key areas:

  • Transportation
  • Inventory
  • Motion
  • Waiting
  • Over-processing
  • Over-production
  • Defects

Depending on the type of manufacturing you’re company is in, one or more of the above labels may be of particular concern to you. But the one label that stands head and shoulders above all others for manufacturing companies is transportation.

Transportation is the chain that links all the components of manufacturing together—from the receiving of raw materials through production and delivery of the finished product. To ensure that transportation does not contribute to waste in your manufacturing process, finding a supplier of high quality wooden pallets is key.
