Description

Every age has its best manufacturing technique—whether it’s Ford’s assembly line, GM’s institution of product choice, or the current favorite, “Lean Thinking.” The problem is that Lean Manufacturing—loosely defined as “turning out greater quality and types of product at higher speeds, using less of everything, from factory space to labor hours and inventories”—comes out of Japanese history and values. Americans translate Lean as meaning, “Get the fat out.” So for example, true story, you can get a “lean” hospital in the U.S. that only allows doctors 3 bandaids before a request is needed for 3 more. And that’s not Lean. That’s impractical, and that’s cheap. Fortunately, Stephen A. Ruffa, an engineer who’se worked for the American Defense Department and is winner of the Shingo Prize for Excellence in Manufacturing Research, knows the difference between being Lean and getting lost in translation. Companies need to be ready for enormous economic tumult today and thrive amid sudden shifts or unpredictable conditions. GOING LEAN can help ensure a smooth landing.
