The main objectives of a lean system is to improve flow and reduce waste throughout the supply chain.
The ability to see flow issues and the waste can be learned. This is a work force approach and the total workforce need to understand the principles. Senior management guidance is of utmost importance.
Lean focus on the supply chain efficiencies, the conversion process and the final delivery of product to the customer.
Product and documentation flow is the basis for lean and value stream mapping supports the concept. All relevant process information is noted on the VSM and provides a snapshot of the process information. There are eight types of waste known to us and these are important to identify. Sometimes we expect some of them to be insignificant, but it is indeed the core issue in our business environments. Lean is a culture, and not easy to achieve. Lean is a process with no end and requires many iterations. Continuous improvement plays an important role in this journey and Kaizen projects is conducted to improve the current state. Lean will assist you with achieving the ultimate goal. To have a stable system performing on the expected level with low waste and time losses.
