Lean Manufacturing Certification Program
leaders must have
the lean knowledge, implementation
know-how, and above all else team
Program is based on the lean
manufacturing concepts and
dynamics presented in Bill Gaw's popular tutorial, "The 8-Basics
of Kaizen Based Lean Manufacturing" (KBLM).
is a graphic that shows the impact of optimizing MRP shop
floor and purchasing sub-systems with KBLM methodology:
Kaizen Based Lean Manufacturing™ (KBLM) does not replace the
MRP system but rather optimizes 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 satisfaction.
Lean Manufacturing Certification Program will help managers
develop an effective self-directed work team that will:
* Improve execution of strategic
and tactical planning
* Optimize operations and inventory performance
* Eliminate supply chain constraints
* Eliminate non-value-added activities and costs
* Increase speed, improve quality and customer satisfaction
* Exceed performance goals and expectations
* Transform work into fun again.
"The 8-Basics of Kaizen
Based Lean Manufacturing Tutorial."
The tutorial contains eight
sections with each
section containing powerful,
Plus slides with note page commentaries and "lessons learned" by Bill Gaw.
Section No. 1: Information Integrity- It is not uncommon for front office management to become disenchanted with computerized systems results when time schedules and promised paybacks are not achieved. Truism: Acceptable systems results cannot be achieved when systems are driven by inaccurate data and untimely, uncontrolled documentation. Knowledge and Know-how Transfer: How to gain control of record accuracy and optimize documentation controls. both key requisite to best-in-class performance.
Section No. 3: Sequential Production - It takes more than systems sophistication for manufacturing companies to gain control of factory operations. To achieve on-time shipments at healthy profit margins, companies need to replace obsolete MRP order launch and expedite methodology with the simplicity of sequential production. The assertion that sequential production only works in high production, widget-manufacturing environments is a myth. Knowledge and Know-how Transfer: The why and how leading manufacturers develop and optimize work cells, line flow and the 5Ss via value stream mapping.
Section No. 4: Point-of-Use Logistics - Inventory handling and storage are two of manufacturing’s high cost, non-value added activities. The elimination of the stock room, as it is known today, should be a strategic objective of all manufacturers. And, it’s time to realize that there is much more to increasing supplier contribution to a company’s growth and profitability than simply placing purchase orders with the lowest price bidder. Knowledge and Know-how Transfer: How to initiate and/or improve a JIT, point-of-use, supply chain development program – a key to getting the right materials to the right place at the right time and at the right total cost
Section No. 5: Cycle Time Management - Long cycle times are symptoms of poor manufacturing performance and high non-value added costs. Manufacturers need to focus on the continuous reduction of all cycle times. Achieving success requires a specific management style that focuses on “root cause” proactive problem solving, rather than “fire-fighting”. Knowledge and Know-how Transfer: An understanding of the important roll that team dynamics must play if cycle time management is to produce significant improvements in speed, quality, cost reduction and customer responsiveness.
Section No. 6: Production Linearity - Companies will never achieve their full 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 form teams of employees to pursue and achieve linear production. Knowledge and Know-how Transfer: We educate our participants in root cause analysis and the PDCA Cycle that help achieve linear production.
Section No. 7: Resource Planning - One of the major challenges in industry today is the timely right sizing of operations. Profit margins can be eroded by not taking timely downsizing actions and market windows can be missed and customers lost by not upsizing the resources in a timely manner. These actions demand timely, tough executive decisions that require accurate, well-timed and reliable resource information. Knowledge and Know-how Transfer: How to simplify and opyimize Sales and Operations forecasting and tracking, Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and resource requirements vs. capacities.
Section No. 8: Customer Connectivity: - Customer satisfaction is in the eyes of the beholder – the customer. Customer perceptions are what we need to address when it comes to improving customer satisfaction. It does us no good to believe our products and services are best if a customer’s perception of our ”as received” quality and/or service is contrary. We need to plan and implement proactive projects that breakdown the communication barriers that create invalid perceptions. Knowledge and Know-how Transfer:: How to get customer connected and overcomes negative customer perceptions
