Although the names may sound similar, Muda, Mura and Muri are three very different, but equally important factors in maintaining a safe and efficient manufacturing facility. When analyzed together, the 3M’s can be considered the three enemies of an efficient work place.Continue reading What is the Difference between Muda, Mura and Muri?
Modern manufacturing wouldn’t be possible without manufacturing engineers. While production workers have a strong understanding of the equipment they use on a daily basis, the manufacturing engineers must have a complete, top to bottom understanding of every piece of equipment in a facility, and how all of the parts work together to create one cohesive unit. In many ways, manufacturing engineers are the hub that holds a modern production facility together and keeps it running efficiently. With this in depth knowledge, comes with an abundance of responsibility and challenges in the day to day work of a manufacturing engineer.Continue reading The Importance of Record Keeping for Manufacturing Engineers
HACCP was developed in the late 1950s, but changes continue to be made to simplify the process, making it easier to implement and maintain. But it wasn’t until the late 1980s when the International Commission on Microbiological Specifications for Food (ICMSF) released a HACCP publication outlining hazard analysis.Continue reading Implementing HACCP: The Importance of Prerequisite Programs
