Sample text

Something, some crucial ingredient, must be missing from the standard list of steps in lean conversions. The missing link is this: a parallel lean conversion effort that converts management systems from mass production to lean. The physical changes in a lean conversion are easy to see: equipment gets moved, inventory is reduced and redeployed, and notable changes occur in material supply, production scheduling, and standardized methods. In an office, changes take place to processes, procedures, and forms.

And finally, lean management and lean production themselves are interdependent; one does not stand for long without the other. So, what are the principal elements of the lean management system? Chapters 3, 4, and 5 go into detail on the principal elements in lean management. The point to emphasize in this chapter is the way the elements combine to form a system. 1). Think of three principal elements as representing major parts of a car: the engine, transmission, and controls. The fourth element is the fuel.

Process Focus in Process Production In these cases, close focus on process does not mean close focus on assembly or fabrication operations as they produce finished units, subassemblies, or raw components. In fact, there usually are few people to watch in process operations because of the high level of automation. Instead, close focus on process means focus on and tracking the status of the critical assets. These are attributes like temperatures, pressures, flow rates, chemical ­composition, and critical characteristics of the outputs at a given point.
