Lean and Technology : Working Hand in Hand to Enable and Energize Your Global Supply Chain (Paperback)
about this item
Traditionally, Lean has been thought of as a "pen and pencil" technique. While most books covering Lean barely discuss the role and impact of technology, this book makes the case that technology is in fact, a key enabler of a Lean Supply Chain. Lean and Technology: Working Hand in Hand to Enable and Energize your Supply Chain is unique in the way it links Lean thinking with available and affordable technologies to get the most out of improved processes.
This book details various supply chain, logistics, and operations management areas where Lean thinking, in combination with existing and emerging technologies such as the Internet, e-commerce, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems etc., can take an organization to the next level through increased speed, accuracy, integration and collaboration among all parties in the supply chain.
Lean and Technology, presented in an easy to understand format, includes tools, methodologies, best practices, examples and cases of how, when and where technology can be combined with a Lean philosophy to “turbo charge” a supply chain to give a company a distinct competitive advantage.
