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.
