9780071835732: How To Implement Lean Manufacturing, Second Edition

Filled with global examples, the new edition of this practical guide offers a full prescription for improving capacity and reducing waste by implementing Lean manufacturing in an enterprise environment.

Thoroughly updated with the latest trends and new global case studies, How To Implement Lean Manufacturing, Second Edition, provides proven methods for executing this powerful formula for eliminating waste, controlling quality and inventory, and improving overall performance in any organization. The book addresses both the engineering/production aspects as well as the psychological-sociological/cultural challenges.

This unique, up-to-date resource stands out from the competition because it demonstrates exactly how companies can actually implement the processes, depending on individual needs. The book details the necessary cultural changes required for a company to switch to Lean, specifies the very distinct order in which a company should implement Lean, and then discusses the common reasons why certain companies have failed in their implementation. By using several global case studies, you can easily apply these situations to your own organization.

  • Explains and demonstrates through real-world global case studies how huge financial gains are possible by implementing Lean manufacturing
  • Shows how to reduce operating expenses and lead time while simultaneously increasing throughput with this systematic approach
  • Presents a strategy for making a plant more flexible and more powerful while utilizing less space
  • Reveals how to improve quality, product cycle times, and reduce down time within an organization
