This interactive workshop extends the benefits of lean manufacturing outward from the factory floor to encompass the entire strategic supply chain,  enabling firms to trim waste from every step in the recurring value stream. The five principles of lean thinking and the methods of kaizen are applied to each stage of supply chain management, including establishing linkage and flow within the supplier network, elimination of transaction costs, use of visual communication, methods of standard work, and reduction of procurement lead time and inventory queues. We'll explore practical methods for identifying and eliminating wasted cost, unnecessary delays and excess inventory, building an integrated supply chain through the use of Internet-based “e-management,” and strategies for exploiting B2B marketplaces and auction sites. The theory is backed up by on-the-job examples and real results.
