Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler recently authored an article featured in Automation and Controls Today magazine, titled, “Automation at the Cellular Manufacturing Level Transformed with New Innovations.” Cutler discussed how cellular manufacturing is a tried and true process that has reduced product costs, while improving lead times and quality. Cells have prospered because they work, and they work in almost any type of manufacturing environment. One reason cells are successful is that they often eliminate many of the wastes inherent in a typical manufacturing operation.
A manufacturing cell is an efficient grouping of all the resources required to manufacture a product. These resources, which usually include people, supplies, machines, tools, and other production equipment, are arranged in close proximity to enhance communication and allows everyone to see what is going on at all times. Overproduction means making more than the next operation can use immediately. A manufacturing cell helps eliminate the waste of overproduction by making it easier to produce only what is needed. All operations are in close proximity, and balancing the steps in the production process is simplified. In a cellular arrangement, one operator can complete multiple operations, which may improve the balance of work and simplify product flow.
Automation & Controls Today is a well-respected international business-to-business publication highlighting advances in manufacturing, industry, and logistics.
