LeanBlog Podcast #25 – Mark Spearman, Factory Physics

spearmanFor Episode #25, I’m pleased to have Dr. Mark Spearman, Founder and President/CEO of Factory Physics, Inc. You may know Dr. Spearman from his book, co-authored with Dr. Wally Hopp, Factory Physics. If there is ONE operations management textbook to own, this is it (it’s well worth the cost).

I was fortunate, as an Industrial Engineering undergrad at Northwestern, to take Dr. Spearman’s operations course. The introduction given about Lean and the Factory Physics / Little’s Law concepts (among others) have served me very well during my career. In the Podcast, we talk about his company, Factory Physics, and the work he is doing today in the manufacturing world.
