Manufacturing is one of areas where optimizations are required continually because the only constant in a manufacturing environment is change. The change is caused by variability of demand and supply, products lifecycles, market strategies and workforce related policies.
The good news about operating a manufacturing facility is that most times considerable performance increase can be made relatively inexpensive only by changing the protocols used to run the manufacturing facility.
At this moment there are some optimization methodologies that are considered the universal panacea for every type of manufacturing environment. This assumptions are not correct as the manufacturing environments and the necessary protocols are highly different. For instance to think that one can apply "pure Lean" to a semiconductor manufacturing facility is unrealistic. Thus, from our experience every manufacturing facility must be analyzed thoroughly and we should choose the right mix of theoretical frameworks or principles that can apply to the specific case.
