  • 1. Lean Transformation A Journey Anand Subramaniam
  • 2.
    • “You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.”
      • - Woodrow Wilson
  • 3. Origins of Lean
    • Lean concepts evolved from the JIT philosophy pioneered in Japan by Toyota and embodied in their Toyota Production System (TPS)
    • The emphasis of JIT is the elimination of waste throughout the supply chain
    • In the 1990's companies adopted the term lean in place of JIT
  • 4. Basis of Lean Thinking
    • Lean means producing
      • What is needed
      • When it is needed
      • With the minimum amount of materials, equipment, labor, and space
    • The goal of an enterprise adopting lean
      • Make each process as efficient and effective as possible
      • Connecting those processes in a stream or continuous chain that is focused on flow and maximising customer value
  • 5. Lean Principles
    • Specify value in the eyes of the customer
    • Identify the value stream and eliminate the waste
    • Make value flow at the pull of the customer
    • Involve and empower employees (there is no better source of insight than the employees who are performing the work)
    • Continuously improve (kaizen) in pursuit of perfection
    Control Measure Analyse Improve
  • 6. Note..
    • It is a systematic approach to drive customer satisfaction and operational excellence
    • Be flexible and vary the approach depending on your organisation’s culture
    • It is a journey / endurance race for continuous learning and improving top & bottom line
    • It requires leadership, discipline, and buy in on lean philosophy
    • Process improvement and people development must go hand in hand
    • It is on the job, real time learning & training
    • Lean is 20% Technical and 80% Behaivioral
  • 7. Challenges
    • Viewed as technical transformation (not cultural transformation)
    • Looked upon as “One-size-fits-all” approach
    • Lack of commitment and understanding of effort required by “C” Level and All Levels
    • Most organisations never get deep enough into the lean process to achieve true success
    • Focus on departments rather than value streams
  • 8. Internal Challenges Gap between enterprise resource planning (ERP) and factory floor Incompatible and Inconsistent systems Lack of timely information to make informed decisions Lack of strategy to unify information across manufacturing Lack of funds and/or lack of perceived value
  • 9. Best in Class – Strategic Actions Improve processes that manage the flow of material and information Lean Initiative Optimise performance at Individual plants and factories Drive standards and consistency Across Global manufacturing networks Improve Sales and Operations Planning Processes

  • 16. Benefits of Enterprise Level Roadmap
    • Facilitates enterprise focus
    • Provides “sequence” for enterprise transformation
    • Increases understanding of “what went wrong” in previous transformation attempts
    • Focuses on people/leadership issues
    • Provides an organising framework for enterprise wide transition
  • 17. Enterprise Transition to Lean Begins with a description of a Top Level Flow of primary activities referred to as “The Roadmap” Then, provides descriptions of key tasks required within each primary activity Finally, leads discussion of issues, enablers, barriers, case studies & reference material relevant to each task in a common structured framework
    • Focus on the Value
    • Stream
    • Map Value Stream
    • Internalise Vision
    • Set Goals & Metrics
    • Identify & Involve Key Stakeholders
