Instead of large product batches that must be stored, right-sized equipment produces just the amount of product needed. Through this approach errors in the process can be quickly exposed and eliminated.Right-Sized Equipment, the DVD gives the viewer an exclusive look into one of the Boeing Companys commercial airplane plant and integrated aero structures business units to explain how right-sized equipment fits with their Lean journey. Sharing real-world applications of lean principles, this video:Shows how the production flow of parts used in de-icing airplane wings improved when the company shifted to making the assembly in a small cellDemonstrates how the cost of some parts decreased by as much as 75 percent just by reducing floor space and changing to right-size equipmentAnalyzes the Japanese term chaku-chaku, explaining exactly what it means to fully utilize people rather than machines.
