The engineering involved in creating precision metal stamped parts is mirrored in the design patterns of creating a system that follows lean manufacturing standards and low-waste industrial-level production.

A Background of Lean Manufacturing

Since the late 1980s, the principles of lean production have become a widely-accepted industrial system of management in automotive, electronics, telecommunications, medical, aerospace, aviation, and countless other production markets.

The concept of lean manufacturing grew from the Japanese “Muda,” Muri,” and “Mura” (“waste,” “overburden,” and “work load”). This trifecta of inevitable sections of industrial production can be put together in many different ways, but the ideals of lean manufacturing work to minimize the production of waste with a balanced work load, while keeping overburden at arms-length as an abstract concept to avoid.

In short, lean manufacturing today works to fabricate products based on demand of the client, without stockpiling inventory and wasting resources with an overburden of manufacturing.
