According to Fork Truck Free Pioneer Topper Industrial Lean Manufacturing One Piece Material Flow Improves Productivity

Topper Industrial asserts that one-piece flow improves productivity. Improved productivity must never compromise production quality. Training can improve the knowledge and skills of staff, yet investment in equipment and new technology most often enables output per worker to increase.

Improved productivity should also be quantified by plant and machinery effectiveness. When a machine might be available and functioning normally for 80 percent of an average week, there is lost productivity even during cleaning and repair. The production manager may consider that this figure could be improved through better and more regular servicing.

Measuring the productivity of capital is frequently calculated by the return on capital employed. Maximizing uptime and throughput to protect profit margins start with a clear VSM (Value Stream Map). Identifying current process inefficiencies create a great starting point.  Industrial carts in the Fork Truck Free environment along with one piece flow produce intuitive handling impacts, while considering the ergonomic setup options minimizing operator fatigue to speed up production. Measuring results can be integrated into best-practices triggering a process step to improve throughput.
