Lean Manufacturing

Lean manufacturing or lean production is a concept of organization's management which is based on the constant effort to eliminate all kinds of losses. Lean manufacturing requires involvement of each employee in the process of business optimization and maximum customer orientation.

The main principles of the lean manufacturing concept are evaluation of the value of product for the final consumer at each stage of its creation, and also creation of a continuous process of eliminating waste - the elimination of any actions that consume resources but create no value for the end user. As a synonym for the concept of loss sometimes is used the term from the Toyota's production system — "muda" which meaning all sorts of costs, losses, waste, garbage.

According to the lean manufacturing concept, all company activities are divided on the operations and processes that add value for the consumer, and the operations and processes that don't add value for the consumer. The objective of lean manufacturing is the systematic reduction of the processes and operations which don't add value.

If you want to find a way to understand complex things in minutes, you should try to visualize data. One of the most useful tool for this is creating a flowchart, which is a diagram representing stages of some process in sequential order. There are so many possible uses of flowcharts and you can find tons of flow charts examples and predesigned templates on the Internet. Warehouse flowchart is often used for describing workflow and business process mapping. Using your imagination, you can simplify your job or daily routine with flowcharts. Warehouse flowcharts are used to document product and information flow between sources of supply and consumers. The flowchart provides the staged guidance on how to manage each aspect of warehousing and describes such aspects as receiving of supplies; control of quality; shipment and storage and corresponding document flow. Warehouse flowchart, being actual is a good source of information. It indicates the stepwise way to complete the warehouse and inventory management process flow. Also it can be very useful for an inventory and audit procedures.Warehouse Flowchart
