Lean on the Road

0

While traveling, even on vacation, you can see lean concepts abound:

  • SFO airport, the escalator has a sign that says “no carts” (the big luggage carts), but they also put in an error proofing device, a “template” that is wide enough for a person to walk through with a suitcase, but not with a cart (no picture, sorry).
  • Toyota has an ad in Newsweek that talks about the millions they spent on U.S. suppliers, the ad has a nice photo of parts containers with kanban cards all attached (I'll scan that and put it online next week).
  • Saw an Apple ad for their new laptops with a magnetic power cord attachment. That way, if you trip over the cord, it's less likely to pull your laptop down onto the ground. Nice error proofing!

Have a great weekend, everyone!
