Pydio Cells Supports Your Move Toward Lean Manufacturing

Created on 2022/09/26

Lean manufacturing isn’t a new concept. In fact, it dates back to Japanese automobile manufacturing in the 1940s, and its principles have been implemented in numerous ways across numerous industries. But today, it's an imperative. Pydio Cells can help your organization's journey to Lean.

The specifics may differ from Kaizen to JiT to Lean Six Sigma, but Lean methodologies are all about understanding value, optimizing workflows, eliminating wasteful inefficiencies and continuous improvement. Pydio Cells can play an important role in helping your manufacturing organization reach, maintain, and improve lean operational efficiency by breaking down the silos between operational units and allowing different departments to collaborate seamlessly across all project phases.
