Description

Thoroughly updated with the latest trends and new global case studies, How to Implement Lean Manufacturing, Second Edition explains how to implement this powerful formula for eliminating waste, controlling quality and inventory, and improving overall performance across an enterprise environment. The book addresses the engineering and production aspects as well as the business culture challenges.

This practical guide describes the Toyota Production System (TPS) and specifies the distinct order in which Lean techniques should be applied to achieve maximum gains. By using the proven methods in this definitive resource, you can implement a successful Lean transformation in your organization. Find how to:

  • Create and deploy enterprise-wide strategies and goals
  • Improve speed and quality and dramatically lower costs
  • Reduce variation in the manufacturing system in order to reduce inventory
  • Reduce lead times to improve responsiveness and flexibility
  • Sustain process gains

  • Manage constraints and reduce bottlenecks
  • Implement cellular manufacturing

New material in this edition reveals how to:

  • Avoid the typical management pitfalls and implementation errors that virtually guarantee a Lean transformation will fail
  • Implement the new skills of Lean leadership, including its six key elements
  • Shape and manage your culture using the five cultural change leading indicators
