About the Presentation:

We hear all the time that, “Lean does not work in Defense Manufacturing, Job Shops or in Complex Manufacturing – it’s only good for repetitive production – like automotive”. Having worked extensively with companies in all of these categories, we beg to differ. This compelling, interactive presentation and exercises give insights into this complex subject matter and provide ideas and concepts to apply in your business immediately.

In this workshop, we will briefly cover the history, differences, and similarities organizational business structures across the Value Stream and trading partners. For Value Stream partners to survive, they must respond quickly to queries for goods and services. Trading partners who do not aggressively expand their capabilities to achieve a world-class level of Lean Supply Chain Integration will soon be rusty relics of days gone by…Mastering Lean Supply Chain Execution (LSCE) strategies is essential.
