The Library contains 10-e-Tutorials covering the 10 basics of LEAN Manufacturing with a total of 357 charts and graphs with relevant narratives plus "lessons learned" from a LEAN manufacturing "been there, done that" back-to-basics professionalThe Library is delivered via Internet in both .pdf and .ppt downloads and can be installed on all Internet devices and a company's Intranet.

e-Tutorial No. 1: Strategic Planning & Tactical Execution -

Strategic planning is a business process that many companies employ to identify their critical success targets that set the course for future growth and profits. If LEAN basics are not in the plan as a  strategic objective.... they will never produce to expectations.

e-Tutorial No. 2: Sales & Operations Planning -

Bringing sanity to shop floor and supply chain scheduling require continuously improving the integration of sales forecasts, master schedules, MRP and day-to-day scheduling.

e-Tutorial No. 3: Point-of-Use Supply Chain Management

Companies will never achieve their manufacturing expectations as long as business leaders continue to talk about value-added supplier partnerships, while continuing to deal with their suppliers as adversaries. Most stockroom are obsolete and huge non value added contributors. How and why  a point-of use supply chain is required for lean success.

e-Tutorial No. 4: Information Integrity -

Lean Manufacturing expectations will not be achieved when day-to-day production and supply chain control  systems are driven  by  inaccurate, untimely  and  uncontrolled Sales, MRP and engineering performance..

e-Tutorial No. 5: Value Stream Mapping -

Analysis of the processes which VS Maps represent can help you increase customer satisfaction by identifying actions to reduce process cycle time, decrease defects, reduce costs, establish customer-driven process performance measures, reduce non-value-added steps, and increase productivity are a few.

e-Tutorial No. 6: Kaizen (CI) Management -  

Price Pritchett puts it this way," Without Kaizen, you and your employer will gradually lose ground. Eventually, you’ll be “out of business,” because the competition never stands still."

e-Tutorial No. 7: Performance Management -

Financial numbers may tell us who's winning the war, but it takes a motivational balanced performance measurement system to win all the battles along the way.  Remember, without data... management is just another opinion.

e-Tutorial No. 8: Cycle Time Management -

If your business teams can handle only one strategic initiative at a time, then let it be the implementation of a cycle time reduction  program. There just isn’t any other more important program in our pursuit of profits.

e-Tutorial No. 9: Sequential and Linear Production -

Companies will never achieve their full growth and profit potential if they produce more than 25% of their monthly shipment plan in the last week of the month or more than 33% of their quarterly shipment plan in the last month of the quarter. As companies struggle to remain competitive, one of the strategies by which gains in speed, quality and costs can be achieved is to implement and optimize  sequential and linear production processes.

e-Tutorial No. 10: Empowered, Self-directed Work Team Development -

A primary reason why many LEAN transformations have not delivered results to expectations is lack of effective training and management development. Transformation success has come to many companies that have trained and empowered self-directed work teams.
