The Linear Motion and Assembly Technologies group from Bosch Rexroth has a free Lean Production Resource Kit for Medical Manufacturing available upon request on its Web site. The full-color brochure and resource CD explain ways to help medical manufacturers implement lean manufacturing techniques. Lean productivity planning guides in the kit include, for example, an industry-specific medical brochure, a guidebook detailing the nine principles of lean manufacturing, and the “Efficient Material Flow in Lean Production” guidebook. The kit also includes the brochure, “How to Optimize Your Assembly Operations” and the “7-Step Ergonomic Guide.”
The kit has a 20-minute video of an in-booth lean seminar presented at the Assembly Technology Expo, as well as product catalogs on Manual Production Systems (MPS), Aluminum Structural Framing, TS 1 Conveyors, TSplus and TS4plus Conveyors, and information on seven types of waste.
