Kivinen JanneWebinar info by our host

“Many companies we work with are used to having to produce in larger, so-called ‘economical’ batch sizes that help to optimize the amortized unit cost. This process creates longer lead times, increased WIP, large and expensive inventories, and lowers return on capital. Fastems challenges this thinking, using modern technologies that enable economical and high-quality small batch production, even for single part flow thus reducing lead times, reducing WIP, minimizing inventories and increasing return on investment. In essence making what is required when it is required to be made.

In this live webinar we will present how the following six areas of production can be optimized to produce small batches, even batch size one:

1. Production planning
2. Production start setup (tools, NC programs, raw materials, workholding, test runs)
3. Tool management
4. Transfers and loading between process phases
5. Quality and traceability
6. Machine tools

After the 30-minute presentation, we will have a 30-minute Q&A session where participants can ask productivity-related questions. A warm welcome!”
