Workstations. Workbenches. Assembly areas. Whatever you call them, they can make or break your organization’s productivity. Are they well outfitted for your employees? Do they work well within your process? Are necessary items on-hand for the most productive workflow possible?
Bosch Rexroth has found better ways to make products in their own plants. A major part of this Continuous Improvement effort is optimizing the flow of people, materials, and information by removing waste in production areas. Bosch has commercialized their assembly area theory and practice into the Manual Production System (MPS) catalog, and our team knows these products inside and out.
The MPS catalog contains hundreds of ideas and products to improve flow in your lean production/manual assembly areas. The catalog provides background information on various workstation accessories including:
- Ergonomic equipment
- Material supply
- Material handling
- Information presentation
…and it includes dozens of application examples to jumpstart your brainstorming session.
