Mid-West Spring and Stamping strives for continuous improvement, while also eliminating waste in the workplace. That commitment began two decades ago and we have never looked back. Our Lean Manufacturing program involves a mindset that demands constant vigilance and forward-thinking.
Lean manufacturing refers to the production process that strives to maximize productivity and minimize waste. Waste is described as anything that doesn’t add value that the customer will pay for. To truly understand one of our core principals, you need to understand the benefits that lean manufacturing includes.
Sustainability is at the core of lean manufacturing. Eliminating waste is not always an easy task, but it is something that we believe in. By becoming more efficient in our processes, we will ultimately be able to streamline services, which will lower costs for our customers and lead to savings throughout the supply chain.
Waste is a negative factor when it comes to costs, deadlines, and resources. There is no value in anything that cannot be applied to a product or service. And through the elimination of waste across all areas, we can see benefits across the board in the next benefits.
Improving quality is a goal by all manufacturers, and that allows companies to remain competitive while adapting to the needs of their customers. Adapting and evolving processes will then push those companies ahead of the competition, allowing for quality improvements across the board.
As quality improves, and as those processes are perfected, both time and costs will become reduced. Just as unused materials are waste, inefficient working practices are also wasteful. Overproduction is not just a problem for materials and work hours, but that then becomes an issue for storage costs.
By streamlining and improving our manufacturing process, we can lower costs and save time, all while eliminating as much waste as possible. The principles and processes of lean manufacturing are there to help benefit everyone involved, and Mid-West Spring and Stamping wants all of its customers and clients to see the value in its operation.
