I recently had the privilege to talk with Temie Fessa from FLEXPIPE. Below is the corresponding article and audio file.

BORROWING LEAN MANUFACTURING CONCEPTS FROM THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY
Jerry Collins – a mechanical engineer with 28 years of experience in the automotive industry – uses the pre-production stage as the critical first step to managing future production costs. It’s during this pre-production stage that Jerry uses modular piping systems as a way to layout his production floor and design material handling systems. This reduces costs and makes it easier to modify those handling systems (if needed) once full-scale production starts.
In this interview, Society of Cost Engineers founder Jerry Collins explains to Flexpipe project manager Temie Fessa how modular material handling systems have helped him maximize efficiency and profits.
