Expert (Womack) suggests lean production


Jacksonville's Financial News and Daily Record

Good article and comments from Jim Womack. Some had criticized him before for making it sound like manufacturing was doomed here in the U.S. because of China. Here, Womack says that lean is the way that we can remain competitive vs. China. That, I agree with.

    Jim is right: have a walk on the shop floor and you will see things you never believed before that very second!

    Problems occur, in lean organisations as in “normal” ones, but you should always seek the root courses so the problem won’t appear again. It’s harder than you think beccause you have to understand the process and the connections with further up- or downstream processes.

    All the best on the lean trip
