ASCM (APICS) is the world's leading association for supply chain management, providing education and certification programs.
The concept of Lean Processes is to eliminate waste in all aspects of your business. How far do you have to travel to finish a product? How many different forms must you fill out to move material from your Receiving Area to your Shipping Area? We will examine Value Stream Mapping to understand what creates value and what creates cost. We will look at shop layouts and how Cellular Manufacturing can reduce cost and increase value for many companies. We will help you see Product Flow and how it needs to be improved. The class will look briefly at the Theory of Constraints to learn how it can be used to focus the early Lean efforts.
We will talk about the other aspects of business like Accounting, Engineering, Marketing, and Sales and how they can reduce waste as well. Companies like General Motors have done a pretty good job of reducing cost in manufacturing, but they have not been able to reduce the $2,500 difference in earnings between GM and Toyota. GM has kept Lean on the shop floor and Toyota is a Lean company. We will learn some of the differences between the two companies and the class will be able to understand the difference between a company that is doing Lean and a company that is Lean.
