Building the Lean Fulfillment Stream:Gemba-Based Workshop
Building on the concepts explored in the LEI books Seeing the Whole Value Stream by Jim Womack and Dan Jones, and Building a Lean Fulfillment Stream by Robert Martichenko and Kevin von Grabe, this workshop provides attendees with methods for understanding and improving the value-creating process that suppliers share with customers.
The workshop will be conducted at the LeanCor Supply Chain Group Operational Center located in Florence, KY, to enable participants to "go see" lean principles and best practices applied to logistics engineering and transportation management processes.
“I visited LeanCor HQ a couple of years ago. I could see how close they were to the customer, tracking current shipping. The discipline of working together at a consistent pace was visible. Talking to one of the IT guys about how the IT system constantly gets tweaked to be better was great, obviously they were designed to change. Listening to a couple of employees walk us through a case study was enlightening. I'd recommend this course highly.”- Blogger, Lean Reflections | Chair, AME Social Media Council
It will reinforce concepts learned in class by demonstrating visual management, pull vs. push, standard work, PDCA, problem solving tools, quality at the source, and continuous improvement. Additionally, the Center will instill an understanding of the "see as a group, know as a group, act as a group" mentality by displaying real time data reporting and KPI metrics.
