The need to reduce lead time, minimise queuing, reduce inventory and improve customer satisfaction is a fundamental for all manufacturers – but many have been missing opportunities by having incorrect policies.
This thought provoking workshop delivered by one of the most respected minds in the world of Lean management, will give Lean leaders plenty of food for thought on the most appropriate actions to take. Focusing on the interactions between variation and utilisation, it will add insight into how to achieve Taiichi Ohno’s famous aim “All we are trying to do is to reduce the time from order to cash”
What you will learn:
- How understanding Arrival Variation and not solely Process Variation can have a revolutionary impact on manufacturing performance
- How Utilisation and Muda, Mura, Mura relate together
- Better understanding of lead times and queues and what you can do to reduce them
- The Kingman Equation and how it can have massive implications for scheduling, sales, accounting, quality and planning.
