How applying Op Ex techniques during manufacturing facility design can improve operations and reduce capital investment and staffing expenditures
Operational Excellence techniques can and should be incorporated during early design and layout development for manufacturing facilities. Analyzing operational efficiency during the design will not only help ensure that the facility is operationally efficient, but will have a big impact on reducing the facility footprint and capital investment. Case studies will be presented to show how these techniques can be applied during manufacturing design.
Join this webinar to:
- Explore why improving operations can help to minimize capital and staffing requirements expected to meet forecasted demand
- Learn specific ways to right-size equipment
- Get practical ideas on how to apply these techniques during the design phase, resulting in an optimized design
