Manual Task Mapping & Cell Layout
One trap we too often fall into is starting to implement a solution without having clearly identified the problem. We jump back and forth between trying to understand the current process and suggesting elaborate ways of carrying it out with a robot, and it becomes confusing before long.
According to the Lean Robotics methodology, we start the robotic cell design with a manual task map, which is a static snapshot of the starting point from which we will work to improve the process. Capturing this information will save you time in the later phases.
The Manual Task Mapping Template will help you gather all the relevant info about your manual process.
