Here is an in-depth account of one of the most important strategic tools available to manufacturing analysts. The author, a nationally known expert in the field, provides much needed guidance on production flow analysis, a new technique that will help save time and money by minimizing set-up times and reducing the size of buffering stocks of components. The volume demonstrates the use of route cards to achieve a total division of made components into families and a parallel division of existing machines into groups using previously established processing methods.
