Lean not enough at Delphi


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.”

What follows is some intersting commentary on what happened to Delphi, despite their increasingly lean and efficient operations. Just goes to show that lean can't get bring success without a strong business model with a cost structure able to keep the enterprise in the same competitive landscape as rivals.
