Problems and Solutions
Kaizen Based Lean Manufacturing™ (KBLM) does not replace the MRP system but rather
its shop floor and purchasing sub-systems. KBLM methodology can generate two to three times MRP
cost reductions while producing significant improvement in
quality and customer

The Lean Manufacturing
Transformation and What Everyone Ought to Know About Training
Believe it... "there is no free lunch!"
If you search the Internet for manufacturing training, you'll come across a ton of stuff... and most of it free.
Now I've had people tell me that they don't need to purchase anything because "you can get so much free stuff on the net."
Admittedly, like I said a second ago, there is a ton of free stuff on the net...and if you put it all together you'd probably have over a 100 hours of YouTube videos, and a million pages of white papers and case studies.
So if you had over 100 hours of YouTube videos, and a million pages of white papers and case studies would you and your company realize your full growth and earning potentials?
Let me answer that for you... NOOOOOO!
Unfortunately, "make-a-difference," manufacturing training materials are not for free... but much less than you would imagine. In fact, we make the training affordable so that it can fit easily within your personal or your company's training budget. We want you and your company to hear what Bill has to say about
lean manufacturing success and the best way to do that is to make it affordable.
Why Do Most Training Options Fail?
Because most training materials today are either:
EBooks with little or no effective graphics to optimize learning
* PowerPoint presentations with no commentary to drive
home the “how to” of each
* Videos that deliver information at super speeds but with
* Seminars/webinars that present a lot of materials however
most attendee’s retention rate is less than 25% and relev-
ant, at-home implementations rarely get started.
Unique, PowerPoint-Plus Training
PowerPoint charts and
annotated note pages
with “how to
make-it-happen” commentary and "lessons learned" by
a "been there, done that"
lean manufacturing professional.
One of the most commonly cited
keys to success is having a
great coach. Whether you're
an entrepreneur or you're
working your way up the
corporate ladder. the
experience of someone who's
"been there, done that" can
be invaluable. Throughout
this training package Bill Gaw
provides expert knowledge,
support, empathy, respect
and, most important, the
wisdom of experience.

is an example of a PowerPoint-Plus
slide with its relevant note page:
Without data, you’re just another opinion. That
says it all. To continuously improve our
processes, we need to first learn how to capture
and then apply statistical data to our situation
analysis. This action is a primary requisite to
effective problem solving. Slide 3-3 presents an
overview of a management by facts system.
Lesson Learned: The more
that people use real time data to perform
situation analysis and to establish and track
corrective actions, the more comfortable and
effective they become at interpreting and
applying data-on-the-run. It is my
contention that exceptional leaders make quick
and quality decisions because they have mastered
the skill of interpreting data-on-the-run.
when a leader says, “That doesn’t sound right to
me. What about .. . . .?” He has put to use,
what I call, the test of reasonableness
and this ability separ-ates the exceptional
leaders from the pack. To develop the ability to
apply the “test of reasonableness,” a
leader must first become an expert at
A Huge Learning Difference
If you were watching a video, attending a seminar, or a webinar would you be able to take down the above in your notes for later reference... I don't think so.
