Cellular Manufacturing

Cellular manufacturing is a manufacturing approach in which equipment and workstations are located in a number of close-proximity groups (‘cells’). Each cell is equipped to make a component or sub-assembly, or complete a standard sequence of process steps. This concept can improve factory efficiency, both by reducing distance travelled by materials, also by making it easier for workers to communicate about problems, changes and plans.
