Hiding in Plain Sight

Hiding in Plain Sight

When planning your improvement initiatives, don’t limit your scope to your production processes.  Applying lean techniques beyond your production floor will not only reduce costs, but improve capabilities, reduce variability, and provide a positive return for your organization.  Even techniques like 3P—Production Preparation Process—can play a role in your administrative (service) value streams.  When planning improvement initiatives, broaden your scope, look up and down the supply chain, from suppliers to processes to customers.  Trust us when we say…its where most of your improvement opportunities are hiding!
