Optimizing production in the metals industry

Balance inventory, waste reduction and high OTIF delivery rates with lean manufacturing principles

Lean manufacturing principles were the catalyst to the post-war economic boom, but how can they be adapted to today’s challenging and increasingly complex metals industry? Lean principles are the gateway to reduced waste, higher delivery levels and a more balanced inventory. In this solution paper, we explore:

  • The history and core principles of lean manufacturing
  • Potential benefits of lean manufacturing for the metals industry
  • How DELMIA Quintiq’s optimized planning solution can act as a catalyst to enabling lean principles
