About This Webinar
In any manufacturing environment how do production employees always know what to work on next? Continuous flow, FIFO, and pull can help by creating a seamless flow through a facility. But to make sure the flow of work is easy for workers to understand, without management intervention, it’s essential to know which guideline to apply – and when. Learn the strengths and weaknesses of each when it comes to connecting processes in an operation.
- Why knowing the difference between continuous flow, FIFO, and pull can mean greater autonomy and on-time delivery for your production line
- How "pull" can spell disaster in manufacturing environments with fluctuating order quantities unless the supermarket is sized correctly
- Real-world application of FIFO in small areas, large spaces, and those with large or difficult-to-move products that you can mimic in your own operation
