This Webinar is designed to examine the secrets behind Japanese management success starting from an approach that is called “Lean” or “Just-In-Time (JIT)”. The importance of this approach both as philosophy and as a method of operations planning and control will be discussed. Lean systems principles, concepts and elements as a radical departure from traditional management practice will be clarified. Requirements, benefits arising from and problems encountered with Lean systems implementation will be discussed.
Muda, Pull system, Jidoka, Kanban and 5’s will be briefly described; concepts, examples, and case studies shall be given from a wide variety of engineering and management discipline.
