Webinar: Value Stream Mapping and Other Lean Tools for the Supply Chain Enterprise
June 11, 2021 | 11:50 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. | Free
When conducting a value stream mapping exercise, the process can be an eye-opening and painful experience. Why? Because you will likely learn that your metrics from department to department do not mesh. Production has different metrics than sales. Marketing analyzes data differently from shipping. When you go through a Value Stream Mapping exercise, you will find that most have not heard the directives from leadership: shorten the time between order and customer delivery, reduce cost, and maximize return.
In this session, we will discuss the journey of Lean thinking from a leading expert, Mark Baker, former Executive Director of the Shingo Institute at Utah State University. He will share a bit of his history and some of this favorite Lean Tools.
