After just a few weeks on the job this is his perception of lean manufacturing, which I am sure you will agree is very impressive………
One of the main benefits of implementing lean manufacturing in my opinion is that it saves money, if lean manufacturing is implemented properly then you should not be wasting any time, if you are wasting less time then you should be producing more. If you are not wasting any resources, you should be spending less money on resources.
A big principle of lean manufacturing is that by reducing waste, the final product is delivered to a customer with value; the advantage of this is that the customer is more pleased with their product, therefore building better customer relationships and customer loyalty.
Lean manufacturing can be hard to implement because it requires a lot of change, if someone in the organisation isn’t motivated to change, it will become very challenging to implement these changes.
I think lean manufacturing is a brilliant thing to implement into any business, because of the results it achieves, it may be hard to implement, but once done, it will change how the business thinks and operates for the better, it will save the business money, time and resources, which is also good for the environment.”
Well done Tom and keep up the good work.
Feel free to comment if you are as impressed as we are.
