The constantly growing cost pressure makes it necessary to continually increase productivity in manufacturing. One central aspect is the detection and avoidance of waste (Muda). Bosch Rexroth’s broad range of prodcuts provides you with first-rate modules for realizing leaner production processes. You only produce what the customer needs – just in time and according to the zero-defect principle.
Waste refers to all process steps that do not directly contribute to adding value. This waste should be avoided be continually reduced, with the aim of creating virtually waste-free production. In order to achieve this, the causes of waste must be identified and eliminated. This constitutes a continuous improvement process (Kaizen) at all levels of the company.
