Workplace Organisation set-up is a model for workplace design and it has become an integral part of Lean Manufacturing systems and office based activities. Workplace Organisation set-up is based upon the principles of group technology which seeks to take full advantage of the similarity between parts, through standardisation and common processing.

The goal of Workplace Organisation set-up (commonly known as a Cell in Lean terms) is the aggressive elimination of waste to give staff an error free environment and in doing so allows them achieve maximum efficiency of resources.

Industrial workplace

Workplace Organisation, sometimes called cellular or cell production, arranges the working environment into semi-autonomous functions with multi-skilled teams, or work cells, which carry out their task in a productive, waste free environment. This is achieved by the combination of four major Lean thinking elements FLOW - STANDARD WORK - PULL - 5S/6S.

Properly trained and implemented Workplace Organisation are more flexible and responsive than the traditional working environments and can manage processes, defects, scheduling, equipment maintenance, and other issues more efficiently.
