Agile Manufacturing vs Lean Manufacturing
Lean manufacturing focuses on reducing waste in the manufacturing process. Better quality control throughout the supply chain is key in creating good value. It aims to analyze and optimize work processes, concentrating on efficiency overall.
Agile manufacturing uses the available resources to respond to customer demands and rapid changes in the market. It uses your current resources rather than solely aiming to trim activity overall. For this however, a stronger argument and manufacturing methodology is needed.
While lean manufacturing focuses on removing waste and ‘dropping weight’ in the production process or looking at opportunities for automation, agile is more focused at using the current resources intelligently and that the organization has the right data to implement changes in manufacturing. Accurate data is vital to making efficient changes in manufacturing.
