Reason No 1 is lack of effective lean manufacturing leadership.

Lean Manufacturing Training: Certification

Solution No. 1:   Successful lean transformations require leadership that has mastered the basics of best-in-class lean manufacturing and the skills to train and empower self-directed work-teams.

Reason No. 2: Lack of required understanding, commit-ment, and  participation.

Solution No. 2:  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.

This product is the only game that demonstrates the differences between MRP (PUSH) and LEAN (PULL) systems and vividly shows the huge non-value-added costs of the MRP (PUSH) system.

Reason No. 3 is not enough planning.

Solution No. 3:  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, then launch a Kaizen program to eliminate them

Reason No. 4 is lack of "been there, done that" training.

Solution No. 4:  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. 5 would be failure to develop Continuous Improve-ment Champions.

Solution No. 5:  Determining motivational performance metrics and establishing Key Performance Indicators (KPI) to track performance is paramount to achieving positive, sustainable lean transformation results.

Financial reports only track the war... it takes Continuous Improvement Champions to define and win the battles along the way. Become a CI Champion and experience the resultant personal rewards.
