Lean Six Sigma Bursts: E67: Why Single-stall Production Systems are more efficient than Assembly Lines

In this episode, I explain what a “single-stall production system” means, and why it is superior to the traditional single piece flow assembly line.

Single-stall is a method of work where one highly skilled worker is trained to perform all steps of the process by themselves (often in one stall to reduce floor space), instead of handing off the work to multiple workers in an assembly line.

It can take months or years to develop their skills so they can perform each step at high quality, but it can be the most efficient way to complete a process from beginning to completion.

I share a link to an article I wrote below, and in the episode I explain the videos in the article that better explain the difference between single-stalls and assembly lines.
