Volgaburmash keeps on introducing Lean Production System
The Company has started the next stage of Lean Production System - Total Productive Maintenance (TPM). Its main targets are increasing the equipment reliability, minimizing injury risk and improving operation conditions.
Earlier the Company has done a great job when implementing the basic stage of the Lean Production System – the 5-S method. Its implementation enabled the Company to decrease time consumption while manufacturing due to better time-and-motion engineering of the operators’ positions and production space.
The 5-S System was developed in the mid twentieth century in Japan. It helps better meet customer requirements and improve the products quality due to optimization of productive processes, maximum cost reduction and preventing in-process and management losses.
Volgaburmash and Uralburmash are Russia’s largest companies producing rock-cutting tools
