Lean manufacturing of steel is a production process that seeks to eliminate waste in all steel production phases with the end purpose of satisfying the customer and making steel production cost effective. In steel production, equipments are often physically so huge that rearrangement of these to reduce unnecessary human and machine movements may be unrealistic.
Because of the size of the products made, cycle time is often longer than in other manufacturing businesses. Metallurgical constraints limit the aggressive acceleration of heat – up and cool – down cycles. Results of a successful implementation of lean manufacturing in steel industry can be massive: huge reductions in production cost, inventory and changeover times, cycle times, large gains in quality, and observable improvements in delivery reliability.
