Glossary Term: Right-sizing

Right-sizing or “right size machinery” is the process that challenges the complexity of the equipment. It examines how equipment fits into an overall vision for how work will flow through the factory. When using right-sized machinery, smaller, dedicated machines are used rather than large, multipurpose, batch-processing machines.

Right-sized machines are best used in cell manufacturing when a cell only produces one type of product.
