Lean manufacturing & adaptability

The versatility of the workstations and their equipment make it easy to apply lean manufacturing methods, specifically the 5S approach currently used in the aeronautics industry. These workstations help to noticeably improve and optimise the workplace safety and wellbeing of constructors’ employees, enable more efficient actions and effort, organise just-in-time production and manage tools to avoid losing them.

In addition to workstations, Sofame has storage units that fit with lean manufacturing and 5S principles.
