Harnessing lean manufacturing in the factory of the future

Global manufacturing supply chains face regular challenges: rising material and energy costs, smaller, local competitors offering lower prices and, studies now show, $900 billion lost in waste. In order to survive, manufacturers need to shift their mind-set, adapting existing processes to work with greater efficiency and precision.

With a lean manufacturing system in the factory of the future, you can regularly identify and eliminate waste in the production process. As waste is removed through lean manufacturing techniques, your product quality is improved and your costs reduced.

By putting in place this type of lean methodology, your company can optimise its performance and become truly world class. This report from Zebra Technologies explores how evolving technologies are empowering manufacturers to do just that.
