Lean & Discrete Manufacturing Principles Crossover to Other Realms


Advanced discrete manufacturing doesn’t just help manufacturing; it can help other realms, too. What other realms? Lets take a look. Advanced Discrete Manufacturing for Other Realms

Inefficient processes are a thorn in the side of many organizations. Not just in manufacturing, but other industries can benefit from advanced discrete manufacturing practices, including:

  • Removing inefficient practices –Look at what’s bringing down productivity and remove it. When you remove inefficient practices, you increase efficiency through lean principles.

  • Having a plan and sticking to it – Without a well-thought out plan, there is chaos. Even in a hospital, where time is critical, advanced discrete manufacturing principles can help. Look at what brings value to patients and create a plan around it. Get rid of anything that gets in the way of providing what your customers, or patients, need.

  • Keeping things organized – Some say a messy desk breeds messy results in any industry. Again, looking at lean principles, implement an organized system that streamlines processes and increases efficiency. From hospitals, to the manufacturing floor, organization is crucial to getting things done fast and correctly.

When it comes to making operations more productive and providing value to customers, lean principles work – even for industries outside of manufacturing. Regardless of what your industry is, consider implementing advanced discrete manufacturing principles for more streamlined operations.
