Abstract
The optical fabrication industry is being pressured to reduce cost and it must respond. Lean Tools can be applied to drive efficiencies that help lower cost. Corning Tropel recently implemented a Lean program called 5S. Significant results were yielded that drove efficiency and enhanced process discipline. Revenue per square foot increased 60% by recovering 10,000sf of floor space and decreasing setup and cycle times.
