An Executive Overview: Over the past 15 to 20 years, thousands of manufacturing companies have jumped on the “Lean” bandwagon. Though many have seen notable gains inside the “four walls” of their companies, a more competitive, truly “Lean” supply chain can bring huge gains in performance. This implies the need to move to “frictionless” exchange between trading partners (Trading partners typically include suppliers, distributors, manufacturers, customers, and consumers – commonly called a Supply Chain.) This opportunity to move toward the networked or virtual Value Stream is redefining the business relationship among trading partners.
