Lean Manufacturing

What is Lean Manufacturing?

The “Lean” concept focuses primarily on the elimination of waste from all business processes. Lean involves specific concepts that are intended to provide quality products, delivered on time at the lowest total costs.

The Lean process is based on values as defined by the customer and seeks to eliminate non value-added activities.

Here at The Cleveland Punch & Die Company we are implementing a Lean Initiative in an effort to improve ourselves, our products and our service to our customers. Please feel free to share your Lean experiences and check back from time to time for updates on our projects and progress with our Lean Manufacturing at The Cleveland Punch & Die Company.
