From the Air Force news service and Google Video, a story about what basically sounds like a week-long “kaizen event” with the goal of reducing waste and increasing airplane availability.
Here is a look back at the “Lean Across the Air Force” memo.
One thing I like about these Air Force videos is how they let airmen describe what they are doing and what lean is. Whether it’s their own words or scripted, I don’t know, but sounds like a good attempt at using lean principles.
There is another video, on engine repair and lean, if you search for “air force lean” on Google Video.
