Lean Manufacturing Training
Lean Manufacturing Training That's Helping individuals
Article: Manufacturing Excellence 5 of 6
The Lean Benchmark Report
A while back, the Aberdeen Group, published their “Lean Benchmark Report.” Of close to 300 manufacturers that participate in this study, 90% reported that they are committed to Lean. However, further analysis found that less than 20% of these companies can be considered best-in-class.
Below you will find the 5-reasons why lean initiatives fail to
meet expectation and a few lean manufacturing training options that
are helping individuals and companies eliminate them. Invest some
minutes of your time and check out the reasons and their challenges.
Reason No. 1 is lack of understanding, support and commitment for a company's lean transformation.
Challenge. 1: Unless all employees participating in the lean transformation are convinced that the lean manufacturing initiatives are important to individual and company success, lean transformation will not meet expectations.

Reason No. 2is not enough planning.
Challenge No. 2:It's not an "add water and stir" initiative. You can't just decide one day to become lean and think it will happen overnight. You need to determine what constraints are impeding your ability to increase speed, improve quality, and eliminate non-value-added activities. And, finally your tactical plan needs to be developed based on value stream mapping and gap analysis.

Reason No. 3is lack of "been there, done that" training.
Challenge No. 3:Even with the best plan, successful implementation will be evasive if there's not a genuine commitment to employee lean manufacturing training, team development and empowerment.

Reason No. 4 would be failure to establish goals and expectations, track daily/weekly progress and carry out corrective actions if and when required.
Challenge No. 4:Determining motivational performance metrics and establishing Key Performance Indicators (KPI) to track performance is paramount to achieving positive, sustainable lean transformation results.
