Lean manufacturing is a production system that uses resources efficiently. Lean manufacturing shortens lead times and decreases costs by eliminating non-value waste. This approach reduces large inventories by producing only on a as-needed basis.
Flexibility is the key to lean manufacturing. Robots are ideal for lean manufacturing because they are integrated with features that save time and materials, such as flexibility, reliability, and repeatability. The ability to change tools and perform more than one function are only a couple of the benefits of industrial robots. Robots eliminate unnecessary motion by only moving the steps they are programmed for. Reliable robots reduce defects in the finished product.
A lean manufacturing system meets high throughput or service demands while storing very little inventory. Lean manufacturing:
