Welcome to Lesson 11 on the topic of Workstation Definition. In this lesson we will use the calculated resources to define workstations, and then ensure that those workstations can operate within Takt Time.
This is what we will cover in this lesson on Workstation Definition:
1. How to calculate the number of necessary workstations. The resource calculation is your starting point for this step, but you need to know how to interpret the calculations.
2. Balancing work between workstations. This is one of the most important steps in creating a well-balanced line. The subject is how to divide up sequential work among several workstations in a flow.
3. When to develop sub-processes. There may be cases where it is desirable to create alternate flows, or sub-processes.
