Abstract
Observation is a key aspect within a Lean improvement project. The project team starts from scratch and analyses the current situation by walking through the production process. During the last decade, the digitization of manufacturing operations has had its share of attention. Different kinds of software tools collect and analyze real-time data and turn them into valuable knowledge to support and optimize manufacturing operations. These systems are commonly referred to as Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES). The historical data – incorporated in these systems – can be used to support or validate the Lean efforts. As MES enforces the standard way of working on the production floor, it is also crucial to (re)align the system with the Lean improvements. A case study within a food and beverage company illustrates this dual role of an MES during a Lean improvement project.
