Many companies are faced with a recurring cycle of unpredictable demands, short term plan changes, fire-fighting, high stocks yet low customer service. Others have mapped their current state, identified their future state and determined that they need to move to a level pull production approach, but are having difficulty taking the next step.
For both groups, this workshop offers a practical intermediate step (on the path to a truly lean system) that can be implemented immediately, resulting in improved stability, understood demand patterns, few plan changes, repetitive fixed cycles, lower stocks, reduced lead time and higher customer service.
Ian Glenday has developed a step by step methodology for implementing levelled production in industries where it currently may seem impossible. Implementation delivers step changes in current levels of performance, margins and customer responsiveness.
“Breaking Through to Flow” explains how lean thinking and essential tools, such as levelled production apply in all types of industry sector.
You will learn why and how lean production’s fundamental logic really does apply to all industries and how it differs from existing supply chain logic. Learn how to begin adapting lean thinking by using the concept of levelled production to smooth the type and quantity of production over a fixed period. This enables production to more efficiently meet customer demands while minimizing inventories, capital costs, manpower, and production lead time.
This workshop can run as a one-day description of the approach, or for three or four days to develop the approach for your particular situation. To discuss your requirements, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 03 8199 7907.
