WorkstationsWORKSTATIONS

Static Workstations

Static workstations are production lines or cells small enough that allow processes to be performed in a short space and transport means are not required for products or tools.

Dinamic Workstations

We consider dynamic workstations production lines or cells that produce large products, as it requires the creation of transportation for the product, its components and tool carts.

Border of Line

In order to reduce wastes during production and assembly processes, it is necessary to optimize the location where the value is accomplished by creating efficient line edges that minimize movement, transport and stock.
