A new book from the Lean Manufacturing Expert Sebastian Brau, presenting techniques, software, procedures and tricks to get the maximum performance from your Lean project by the use of current available technologies in factories. You will learn how to: 1.- Implement the 'Active Inventory' methodology to prevent your factory from having any stockout ever again. 2.- Use 'lean markers' to detect productivity deviations in your operations more easily. 3.- Merge Kaizen and Pareto to complete your 'continuous improvement' cycles faster and cheaper. 4.- Transform the quality controls in your factory into plant sensors to build a 'digital nervous system'. 5.- Use simple plant records to automatically feed your ERP. 6.- Implement a Material Traceability control that does not jeopardize your operation's productivity with unnecessary costs. 7.- Use SMED video guides to reduce the need to train your staff and the global time for the Lean project to be implemented. 8.- Implement a time control for your staff without offending susceptibilities in the factory. 9.- Know how the new North American Law 'FSMA' can affect your operation if you do not anticipate its effects. A different Lean book written by a Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Software Engineer with more than 20 years' experience in implementing Lean Manufacturing and structured with the different technological viewpoint that his specialized profile allows, in the form of "Practical guide on the correct use of Technology in a Lean Project"
Unique coverage of manufacturing management techniques--complete with cases and real-world examples. Improving Production with Lean Thinking picks up where other references on production processes leave off. It is increasingly important to integrate and systematize lean thinking throughout production/manufacturing and the supply chain because the market is becoming more competitive, products are becoming more complex, and product life is getting shorter and shorter. With a practical focus, this book encompasses the science and analytical background for improving manufacturing, control, and design. It covers specific methodologies and tools for: * Material flow and facilities layout, including a six step layout design process * The design of cellular layouts * Analyzing and improving equipment efficiency, including Poka-Yoke, motion study, maintenance, SMED, and more * Environmental improvements, including 5S implementation With real-life case studies of successful European and American approaches to lean manufacturing, this reference is ideal for engineers, managers, and researchers in manufacturing and production facilities as well as students. It bridges the gap between production/manufacturing and supply chain techniques and provides a detailed roadmap to improved factory performance.
Claves para una economía y unas finanzas más responsables, personalizadas y alejadas del despilfarro. La reciente crisis ha sido el resultado de un modelo de gestión implantado desde inicios del siglo pasado, que ha llevado al mundo a un consumo desbocado y a generar burbujas, malgastando recursos facilitados por las entidades financieras, sin aplicar el necesario control. Como consecuencia de estas prácticas inadecuadas, el consumo ha acabado cayendo espectacularmente y los recursos financieros se han vuelto mucho más difíciles de obtener. Para no caer en los mismos errores, hay que cambiar definitivamente de paradigma y olvidarse de generar productos y servicios a gran escala, despersonalizados y que no tienen en cuenta las preferencias de los clientes. Nuevos enfoques, para los que la eficiencia y la innovación forman parte esencial de su ADN, están ya introduciéndose desde hace unos años y las empresas que operan de acuerdo con ellos están obteniendo magníficos resultados. Este es el camino que las empresas deben emprender ahora y en el futuro.

"Kirk Zylstra's focus on the customer is a fresh approach to lean. Companies that can bear the burden of variability will develop a strategic advantage in today's volatile market." —Travis Jarrell Institute of Industrial Engineers Program Committee Chair "Lean Distribution is a comprehensive yet concise work with clear leanings. Kirk's experience across a range of industries brings a unique understanding of common opportunities and solutions available to optimize distribution processes. Lean techniques, typically effective in manufacturing processes, are applied in the downstream supply chain in a practical and productive manner that will offer something to any business distributing tangible goods." —F. Jeff Duncan Jr. VP, CIO, and Director of Technology Louisiana Pacific Corp. "Lean Distribution has robustly captured the revolution occurring in today's increasingly competitive and global supply chain. Eliminating losses through lean manufacturing and lean distribution initiatives will become even more critical enablers to organizations developing cost-advantaged supply chains." —Rick McDonald Director of Manufacturing The Clorox Company
The management of techology has become universally recognized as a key element of international competitiveness in both military and commercial arenas, encompassing concerns for effective product and process design, development and implementation. Far-sighted managers as well as academics have increasingly perceived the need for thoughtful scholarship on the managerial issues involved in technology. Since M.I.T. has been a pioneer in technology management research and education (its program was founded in 1962), the Sloan Management Review has been in an ideal position to encourage publication and diffusion of new ideas in this rapidly emerging new field. The sixteen articles reprinted here are organized around the critical dimensions of managing technology: staffing, structure, and strategy. Such articles as "Has a Customer Already Developed Your Next Product?," "Entrepreneurs, Champions, and Technological Innovation," and "Government Intervention and Innovation in Industry" offer invaluable insights to practicing managers seeking alternative solutions to current problems. About the Editor: Edward B. Roberts is David Sarnoff Professor of Management of Technology, Sloan School of Management, M.I.T.

It is easy to learn the philosophy and the concepts of kaizen. It is quite another challenge to translate the philosophy into action. While most books expound on the underlying principles and theory, Kaizen Assembly: Designing, Constructing, and Managing a Lean Assembly Line takes you step-by-step through an actual kaizen event. This approach demonstrates in detail the mindset, the processes, and the practical insight needed to transform your current assembly line into a world-class lean operation. Chris Ortiz brings the experience of over 150 successful kaizen events to the pages of this unique guide. Using clear, succinct, and unambiguous language rather than more general and esoteric terms found in other books, he explains how to implement waste reduction, 5S, time and motion studies, line balancing, quality-at-the-source, visual management, and workstation and assembly line design. Taking a unique approach, the book follows an example of the assembly process for an electric bike including illustrations of nearly every step along the way. Ortiz even includes the most valuable teaching tool of all: past mistakes, how they were overcome, and how to identify and avoid them. Providing expert guidance that will last long after the consultants have left, Kaizen Assembly supplies the tools you need to make kaizen and lean assembly a permanent fixture at the heart of the shop floor.

Lean Thinking was launched in the fall of 1996, just in time for the recession of 1997. It told the story of how American, European, and Japanese firms applied a simple set of principles called 'lean thinking' to survive the recession of 1991 and grow steadily in sales and profits through 1996. Even though the recession of 1997 never happened, companies were starving for information on how to make themselves leaner and more efficient. Now we are dealing with the recession of 2001 and the financial meltdown of 2002. So what happened to the exemplar firms profiled in Lean Thinking? In the new fully revised edition of this bestselling book those pioneering lean thinkers are brought up to date. Authors James Womack and Daniel Jones offer new guidelines for lean thinking firms and bring their groundbreaking practices to a brand new generation of companies that are looking to stay one step ahead of the competition.
