Welcome to Part 3 of E2M‘s Lean series. Today’s topic is Lean, Culture & the Engineer’s “Tools” Fixation. In Part 2, we concluded with the realization that the problem is most manufacturing professionals who are on the hunt for world-class results don’t achieve anything close to the results they wanted. A leading reason for the [...]
Welcome back for Part 2 of E2M‘s Lean for High-Speed Manufacturing series. Today we will be discussing successful Lean production system using Toyota’s example. The leaders of Toyota understood getting better is more difficult than coordinating labor, raw materials, machines, production schedules, automation and material flow into a fluid system. With this understanding, Toyota began [...]
Welcome to Part 1 of E2M‘s 8 Part series on Lean for High-Speed Manufacturing! Is LEAN another quality management fad whose time has come and gone? We don’t think so. But in a high-speed manufacturing environment, a parochial application of LEAN principles can lead to disastrous results. In order to apply LEAN principles to high-speed [...]
The System Analytics group was originally founded by a young engineer who was tired of spending fruitless weeks in the field. He realized there had to be a better way, and after some initial struggles, emulation modeling has become a staple of any project we do here at E2M/Haskell. After experiencing success with emulation, expansion [...]
One of the great benefits of E2M‘s systems analytics is the ability to see the future. Instead of gazing into a crystal ball, we use powerful simulation software with state-of-the-art processors. Well, that software just got better by incorporating a physics engine into the already robust simulation software world, yielding a more accurate and responsive [...]
