Lean Manufacturing Pros and Cons Evaluated by Pinnacle Strategies

Lean Manufacturing Pros and Cons Evaluated by Pinnacle Strategies

 
PRLog - Dec. 29, 2012 - Lean is great because:
•   Looks at the whole value stream
•   Lean has lots of great tactical tools
•   People have read about success at Toyota and want to do it themselves
Lean fails because:
•   People treat all waste as equally bad
•   People focus on reducing waste instead of increasing flow
•   Lack of focus
•   People do not see lean as a system and leave out important pieces – all must be present for Lean to be great

These are the opinions of Mark Woeppel and his team at Pinnacle Strategies; they are among the first in the world to integrate concepts with Business Process Reengineering, Lean, and Six Sigma.   Along the way, helping companies produce astounding bottom line results.  
Woeppel is an internationally known author, including The Manufacturer’s Guide to Implementing the Theory of Constraints, published by APICS/St. Lucie Press, in 5 languages and Projects in Less Time, published by BookSurge in English & Japanese. He has helped organizations that range in size from the Fortune 100 to the local entrepreneur.  He is the author of numerous white papers and presentations regarding improving process performance related to operations, production, supply chain, project management, and performance management. He is a teacher, having taught at the college level and at many executive conferences.
After carefully examining the value of Lean Manufacturing, Woeppel simplified great elements of Lean, and what causes Lean to fail.
