As you may know, lean manufacturing is a method of eliminating waste in the manufacturing process while improving productivity. Lean manufacturing focuses on customer value by providing the customer with the best cost, product, and service.

Waste can present itself in many forms, such as defects in the product that disqualifies it from use, or over-production that could leave a manufacturer with an excess of product that has nowhere to go.

A way we reduce waste is following the 5S model, which helps us Sort -> Set in Order -> Shine -> Standardize -> Sustain.

Agora’s Lean Manufacturing aims to embed a culture of continuous improvement where everyone seeks to identify and eliminate waste, enabling us to meet and exceed customer expectations.
