Front-office Lean-Taking Lean Manufacturing Beyond the Shop Floor
Lean manufacturing practices are employed to some degree on almost every manufacturing floor, but many companies aren't realizing the real benefits of lean by

lean event  kicking off a front-office lean initiative. A kaizen event involves 1) standardizing an operation, 2) measuring the standardized operation, 3) gauging measurements against requirements, 4) making the appropriate changes to meet requirements and increase productivity, and 5) standardizing the new operations. Using this technique, it is possible in a very short amount of time to identify waste in front-office processes by asking questions that many companies never ask about their administrative activities, Read More...
