Imagine a superhighway system through your plant with integrated feeder and connector roads that allow every part, once they start their journey, an uninterrupted and faster trip through the complete manufacturing process. Imagine that there would be no sidetracks, stoppages, stalls or parking lots. Imagine that the infrastructure is so light and flexible that it can be readily reconfigured when conditions change.

Imagine that the pace and volume is autonomous to always allow continuous flow. Imagine that the workpiece  flow is synchronized with and protecting the current constraint among the production resources from starvation. Further imagine that their progress will be completely monitored for an uninterrupted trip.

Imagine that such a system costs less to plan, to install, is easier to operate and rarely requires maintenance, and life performance guaranteed. Imagine that such a system is a reality for decades and is currently performing in almost every major industrialized region in the world.
