What is cellular manufacturing?
Benefits of Cell Production
Consolidating costs ties directly to the materials, finish, and method you use to facilitate a welding design for metal fabrication. Not every facility is capable of doing so, that’s why it’s important to use facilities that support VAVE (Value Analysis / Value Engineering), lean manufacturing, and cell manufacturing.
Value engineering helps you streamline the supply chain of your new products, while value analysis helps you improve your current product’s function and associated costs by identifying hidden or unnecessary expenses in your manufacturing process.
Cell manufacturing is one manufacturing technique that uses “VA” and “VE” principles to deliver quality products that are also cost-effective. The goal of cell manufacturing is to move quickly and efficiently, while making a wide variety of similar products, and reducing waste.
Blackstone has repurposed the benefits that VAVE engineering brings via its facility to support cell manufacturing.
How Cell Manufacturing Helps You:
- Cost-effective. Cell manufacturing brings processes that are usually scattered into one place, streamlining all activities.
- Repeat order efficiency. Blackstone’s 275,000-sq.-ft. facility is large enough to not only store your inventory, but also accommodate cell manufacturing. Repeat orders can be produced at a high volume, saving costs while retaining quality.
- Reduces transportation delays. The layout ensures fabrication cells, assembly areas, and checkpoints are centrally located, reducing transportation delays and supporting quick production.
