Lean has been an enduring business philosophy used with great success for more than 60 years. However, Lean is most often thought of in a manufacturing setting. Applying Lean to the entirety of the supply chain will help reduce the waste organizations find in not only production but also distribution chains, information systems and communications, warehousing, purchasing and accounting, and every aspect of production. Across the entire supply chain, Lean reduces non-value added activity, costs, and delivery time, greatly enhancing customer satisfaction. Any organization not employing Lean principles to their supply chain may be living with inefficiency and ineffective processes, and in the process, losing money, time, and customers.
Course attendees will have the basic knowledge to apply Lean to supply chain activities and recognize the value added provided by a Lean approach to the supply chain.
