I've seen many companies that create their own buzzword or name for TPS and Lean Manufacturing. I just came across Rockwell Automation System's “Power Lean” program. It appears that they are selling training/consulting as a service to customers of theirs. Do you think there is value to giving it a trademarked name like “Power Lean”? Does that help attract the attention of executives or is that a problem if they are only attracted by a catchy name like that? Is there something wrong with just applying the principles without creating a program around it? What do you think? Click comments…..
