The link above is to an e-newsletter from Jim Womack.
In this newsletter, Womack comments on his experience and observations at Delphi facilities stating, “I have walked through dozens of Delphi facilities in many countries and in my recent walks I have seen some of the leanest practices I have ever found outside of Toyota City.”
