The VSM Workcell symbol denotes a U-shaped manufacturing cell. It is a way of organizing a flow between workstations and indicates multiple processes that are integrated into a manufacturing work cell. With a U-shaped manufacturing cell, the operator finishes their work in the same location they start in, eliminating the waste of walking from the end of the line back to the start. The value stream mapping Workcell is an arrangement of resources in a manufacturing environment to improve the quality, speed and cost of the process. Work cell manufacturing is where the resources – including labour, equipment, and raw materials – are consolidated in a single area for production.
