|This video program examines how manufacturing companies are using lean tooling as an integral part of lean manufacturing to immediately cut costs, drastically reduce production lead time, and ensure quality. By viewing both programs you can see case studies from 4 companies who have successfully implemented lean tooling, PLUS learn specifically what you can do to be more like those companies.
Take a look inside:
The 2 video package includes the workbook “Lean Tooling: The Right Tool at the Right Time” by T. Fabrizio and D. Tapping.
- Lee Blake Precision Machining and see how they've integrated lean tooling into their daily work practices, saving a tremendous amount of time and money.
- Eaton Aerospace and see how the 5S System and Visual Controls were used.
as they implemented lean tooling.
- K&A Machine & Tool, where a Kanban system was used to control tooling insert usage.
- Classic Turning, where employees are solving tooling and changeover problems through teamwork and
Tom Fabrizio worked with the eminent Dr. Shigeo Shingo of Toyota in the early 1980s and Deming prize-winning author Dr. Ryuji Fukuda. For 20 years, Don Tapping has worked to eliminate waste and improve bottom-line results in telecommunications, medical, automotive, industrial, and aerospace markets. Together, they have produced a workbook that applies lean manufacturing to tools and tooling. “Lean Tooling” goes beyond quick changeovers, setup reductions, and the 5S program. It provides automonous maintenance for tooling, a kanban for tooling program, complete standization, and visual control systems.
