Gemba Pantarei Doesn’t Like GM’s "Red Tags"
Jon Miller makes a clever point about the double meaning, to lean people, of “Red Tags”. He says the dealers are getting rid of un-needed vehicle inventory…. just as we might clear out the shopfloor in a 5S event.
It's sad though, jokes aside, that the auto industry “pays people incentives to take cares that aren't exactly what they want.” I think it was Jim Womack who said that a few years ago. The dealers are so addicted to bragging about how much inventory they have on hand. Plus the dealers love advertising discounts, even for luxury cars (look how cheap you can get this Jaguar!).
What a fundamentally broken industry the auto industry is. And I say that being around health care now!
