Re: Where does the Lean Manufacturing philosophy / tool set come from?

Re: butcher analogy
I'm pretty experienced with a knife in a kitchen setting, having learned from commercial chefs and butchers while working as a "kitchen slave" prepping and cooking banquets at my Shrine functions throughout the 70's and 80's. I may be able to trim out multiple cuts of meat efficiently, but I feared for the safety of my hostess's digits when she was trying to carve a roast last Sunday. I had to stop her and sharpen her knife which was so dull, she would have had the same result using the back of the blade. She still persisted in "sawing" at the turkey carcass, even though the knife was then sharp enough to slide through on one stroke.

For most people, tending to "core competencies" is a smart and Lean thing to do, outsourcing the work (like trimming meat) which can be done either more efficiently, more expertly, or less expensively by outsiders than in-house.

For example, I may be able to write computer programs, but I find it less stressful to concentrate on defining the end functions I want and letting someone else write the code, letting the value of my peace of mind counterbalance the cost of an outside code writer.

Thanks for sharing this. I was impressed by the notes for each slide, which lead me to believe there is an intelligent presentation to go with these excellent slides!

Re: Where does the Lean Manufacturing philosophy / tool set come from?

I was in a similar spot as you not that long ago. I took a class which taught me the tools and how they were beneficial, but I didn't REALLY understand Lean until I read "The Toyota Way" by Jeffrey Liker. The internet can give you an outline of what it is, but since I've read this book, I understand it far better. Understand the philosophy of Toyota and you will understand Lean. It all made perfect sense after I read it.

Help Please?

I am a new quality auditor and have spent the past few years learning that role. My organisation is starting a 'lean programme' and I have to confess to knowing very little about it. Could someone please provide some basic background knowledge on this tool? Where does it come from? What it is used for? How it operates? When auditing this function, what to look for?

Your advice and knowledge are very welcome.

Thank you and Regards,

Andy

He Andre...

The Lean system, certainly is a work philosophy, where it is revolutionizing of the world !
To implant a Lean system, good and efficient it must have two tools/philosophies very spread out well and functioning as inside of its company, them Just in Time and Jindoka, these two are the Hart of the Lean system.

Do you Have knowledge of these two tools/philosophies and are well functioning in its company?

I just went through your presentation and I though it was very good (I know it's an old post but....) Anyone can answer this for me.

I'm curious about the kanban definitions. I've never read anything on a "non-replenishable" kanban. What is the purpose of having a kanban that doesn't signal you into any action? I can't think of any reason to put together a signal that says we just ran out of this one time use item but don't do anything about it? Am I not understanding this slide or what (#13)?

Re: Where does the Lean Manufacturing philosophy / tool set come from?

I just want an example of when you would use a non-replenishable kanban. Kanban's are signals so what does a non-replenishable kanban signal?

Maybe a better explanation is what I need.
