Session Summary:
Learn a proven six-step procedure for planning all kinds of manufacturing cells – forming, fabricating, machining and assembly.  This 6-step procedure addresses all three aspects of cell planning – physical, procedural, and personnel-related.  Key documents, a comprehensive checklist, and pre-defined outputs for each step provide you with a visual, standardized planning procedure.  The presenter will use a case example to illustrate the six steps.  Each of the key documents will be made available as templates in Excel.

Prerequisites: Participants will benefit from first-hand experience with manufacturing cells and their planning. Ideally attendees should have planned at least one cell so that they may compare the procedure being presented to their own experience and approach.
