Inside this book, you will learn new designs for these lines that can lead to more efficiency by taking advantage of inherent imbalance--for example, operators who work at different speeds--a concept that has traditionally been seen as an obstacle to efficient production. The authors have included a series of experiments that illustrate the issues involved in improving performance through production line imbalance, as well as some surprisingly easy ways to improve performance with low or zero costs.
