Cellular Manufacturing 

When cellular manufacturing is implemented, you make one product at a time immediately — the opposite of the mass-batch method — where products are processed and set aside for assembly. Often this requires that you set up workstations next to each other in the shape of a “U.”  This is where the term “cell” originates, as each production line becomes its own cell.

Cellular training will cover the detailed, five-step process for designing and implementing work cells for either assembly or machining applications. You will participate in a live simulation to apply principles learned to gain a solid foundation.

You will learn about:
  • Plant layout implications
  • Takt time
  • Value added versus non-value added
  • Line balancing
  • Variable work cycles
  • Human and machine design
  • Quality at the source
  • Poka yoke (mistake proofing)
