Lean Execution : The Basic Implementation Guide for Maximizing Process Performance (Paperback) (Clifford
about this item
This book highlights Lean methods/tools that maximize process performance, and is based on first-hand implementation. Methods/tools are explained, but the focus is the guidelines, process conditions, and tips for ensuring successful implementation (many books explain how to construct a value stream map but few explain the conditions necessary to ensure successful completion). Concepts are explained succintly (the concept of flow/TOC is reviewed using a garden hose analogy). Simple calculations/examples reinforce key concepts for determining production rates and process variation. It concludes with a summary outlining a blueprint for maximizing success using Lean methods.
