focus of lean manufacturing  allocations. Most lean scenarios focus on direct material costs so the limitation is not an issue. However, some lean scenarios require value-added costs to support calculation of a manufactured item''s cost and suggested sales price. Autodeduction of these value-added costs supports an order-based costing approach for manufacturing kanbans. In this case, routing data must be used to support the costing purposes. Chapter 5 explains several work cell considerations, including the use of routing data for Read More...

The reason for placing it there was that the equipment was fixed, and by limiting the line to reduce the number of items, we believed that we could also hold down the number of changing factors as well. In short, the flow of disk manufacturing is: cutting material > grooving > drilling holes > rounding > aperture polishing > inspection for a total of about 15 processes, including detailed items.
