Leveling is about finding ways at the planning level to even out the use of resources and thus release the potential for creating an efficient operation. Achieving a total leveling is usually impossible. However, in most cases several measures can be taken to achieve better leveling.
Part Development can support you in identifying factors that affect the use of resources in your operations and, through analysis, can devise activities that will help you to reduce variations in the use of resources. The next step is to draw up an action plan that will provide the basis for carrying out these newly devised activities.
Leveling the flow is very important for productivity in an operation. Creating the conditions for a better utilization of resources and a better working situation for employees can result in great gains.
