Lean Manufacturing Management Development...

"Bill has helped me a lot, either by providing clear and precise directions whenever I asked, or by sharing much of his deep knowledge in his Website, bbasicsllc.com. Managing, with excellence, the combination of sound theoretical knowledge with successful "hands-on" expertise, Bill is certainly one of the few persons I'd classify as "Mentor of the Coaches! "

Paulo Lindgren Lean Six-Sigma Consultant
and MBA/M.Sc. Professor"

"Bill is one of the most prolific individuals in the consulting industry and profession. He is a true thought leader and a great coach -- one of the best. His advice is golden and he has the respect of his colleagues worldwide. We all religiously read his articles and newsletter because they are informative, educational and right on the mark."

Deliverables:  "The 10-Best Practices of Best-in-Class-Lean Manufacturing"
(A Bill Gaw
PowerPoint-Plus CD-Library
contains containing powerful, PowerPoint slides with note page commentaries and "lessons learned.")

CD - Best Practice 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.

CD - Best Practice No. 2: 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.

CD - Best Practice No. 3: 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 lean champions are just another opinion.

CD - Best Practice No. 4: 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.

CD - Best Practice No. 5: Kaizen Management -  If your business team can handle only one strategic initiative  at a time, then let it be the implementation of a “quick-hitting” kaizen program. There just isn’t any other more important program in our pursuit of profits.

CD - Best Practice No. 6: 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!.

CD - Best Practice No. 7: Point-of-Use Supply Chain Management -Companies will never achieve their lean manufacturing  expectations as long as business leaders continue to talk about value-added supplier partnerships, while continuing to deal with their suppliers as adversaries.

CD - Best Practice No. 8: Cycle Time Management - If your manufacturing team can handle only one kaizen project at a time, then let it be the reduction of total build/test cycle time. There just isn’t any other more important control factor in our pursuit of lean manufacturing success.

CD - Best Practice No. 9: 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.

CD - Best Practice No. 10: Resource Planning - The inadequate and untimely availability of resources is a major cause of manufacturers’ failure to meet their delivery schedules and profit margin forecasts – material shortages, low productivity and poor planning are not always the only causes.

"Thank you very much for everything Bill, it means a lot that you took time from your busy schedule to talk and coach me through the program.

Dear Bill,

"I am very pleased that I discovered your website so I could take advantage of the Lean Manufacturing Management program.  I was looking for something that provided practical information that I could use immediately and your e-coaching is exactly what I was looking for. 

Your experience in implementing a lean culture obviously shows as the material contains many examples of how each lean tool was applied.  I am very impressed with the breadth of your experiences across a company, from the executive’s office to the shop floor. 

Your coaching throughout the certification was very helpful and I am looking forward to keeping in touch and taking advantage of your offer to assist me at any time. Thank you very much."
