Lean Manufacturing Training | YMB Consulting | Innovation in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it

YMB Consulting's approach to lean manufacturing training is different than other consultants in that we don’t believe in a particular “lean manufacturing” philosophy, but believe that lean manufacturing should address the issues preventing your company from reaching it’s goals. Therefore in order for us to be able to train you on the proper lean manufacturing tools, we must first understand your company by conducting an operational assessment. We believe that Lean Manufacturing should be used to solve problems and that to simply be trained in all the lean manufacturing tools offers very little value...Read More....

What Technology Will Look Like In Five Years

What Technology Will Look Like In Five Years | Innovation in Manufacturing Today | Scoop.it
Rather than gauging if the toilet has enough water, the soap bottle is full enough and the lights are the perfect level, your smart bathroom can ask, “How was your visit?” You can say “Good,” or perhaps, “Bad —  there wasn’t enough soap.” This eliminates the need for so much tracking, and makes the experience feel more human. Ultimately, our devices will rely on our feedback just as much as data.
