2. Operations in Link
Breaking operations down into microphases also proved to be a condition for correct standardizing, planning, and overall management of flexibly integrated operations that are characteristic of lean production and are called „operations in link“ in PPROI.
It was a revelation for me when the consultants explained to us that an isolated operation, the traditional basic unit of a process, is changing in link with other operations, and that it makes no sense count the times of isolated operations.
I was considerably surprised by automatic calculations variant standards of operations in link, which PPROI counts for various numbers of workers on flexible line, and which allow us to change the speed of production according to demand in production plans.
