Course Overview

How does the concept of flow fit with a modern factory layout? Explore the challenges that can impede a solid flow design with this course on balancing flow production with common design concepts. This course supplies an overview of both Level Loading and Line Leveling, providing you with the benefits and pitfalls to avoid in implementing both systems.

Feeder Cells and Moving Lines are also addressed in this course to provide a comparative note to the traditional mass production technique, and their overview shows how this technique supplements other flow methods. This will give you a new set of tools and techniques to call upon when designing your optimal layout.
