The research team implemented lean manufacturing practices and innovation by first observing workflow patterns, collecting data and evaluating the existing process, and then modifying and refining the one-piece flow process to improve efficiencies and accommodate new product SKUs. The new system cuts the production time by almost 50%, and was implemented without interrupting the real-time workflow.
