Mastering lean manufacturing basics of what has worked in the past establishes the foundation needed to successfully implement and optimize the change initiatives of today and tomorrow.

The Best-in-Class, Lean Manufacturing e-Library
(You'll receive both .pdf and .ppt versions)

The e-Library contains the 10-Basics of Lean Manufacturing in the form of PDF e-Tutorials with a total of 357 charts and graphs with relevant narratives plus "lessons learned" from a lean manufacturing "been there, done that" professional The e-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.

e-Tutorial No. 2: Sales & Operations Planning

Bringing sanity to shop floor and supplier scheduling requires continuously improving the integration of sales forecasts, master schedules and day-to-day schedules.

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

Companies will never achieve best-in-class manufacturing expectations as long as business leaders continue to talk about value-added supplier partnerships, while continuing to deal with their suppliers as adversaries.

e-Tutorial No. 4: Information Integrity -

MRPII/ERP expectations will not be achieved when day-to-day production and manufacturing/supply chain control  systems are driven  by  inaccurate,  untimely  and  uncontrolled data and/or documentation.

e-Tutorial No. 5: Value Stream Mapping -

Analysis of the processes which the 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. No. 6: Kaizen 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. No. 7: Performance Management -

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

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

Effective shop floor control has proven elusive as  we have upgraded our manufacturing  control  system from  MRP  to MRPII  and  then  to ERP. To capture control of shop floor activities, we  need  to  stop beating  a “dead horse”  and implement  the  Sequential Production Process. The winners are!

e-Tutorial No. No. 10: Production Linearity -

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 pursue and achieve linear production.
