LeanCor to Facilitate Supply Chain Training Workshop at LEI's 2018 Lean Transformation Summit

What does it mean to be a better employer? Are you doing everything you can to develop your team? (How do you know?) Do you need new tactics?

Regardless of your position within your organization, everyone holds the responsibility to build a better company. This is what the Lean Enterprise Institute (LEI) will be exploring, sharing, and learning when the lean community gathers in Nashville for the Lean Transformation Summit, March 26 and 27.

Consulting Director Derek Browning will facilitate a workshop on "Building the Lean Fulfillment Stream" on Wednesday, March 28 from 8:00AM to 4:00PM.

About This Supply Chain Training

Taichi Ohno says, “All we are doing is looking at the timeline from the moment the customer gives us an order to the point at which we collect the cash. And we are reducing the timeline by reducing the non-value-adding wastes.” Through this highly interactive workshop, learn how to re-think your supply chain starting at the customer and working backwards, systematically eliminating waste and inventory from the process so that only value remains.

The workshop highlights the critical elements and “must know” concepts of lean as they apply to the supply chain and logistics, and provides opportunities to discuss what organizations need to do to successfully build a Lean Fulfillment Stream. “Total Cost” is a common theme through this workshop, as we discuss and dissect the importance of supplier and customer collaboration, cross-functional cooperation and logistics and supply “stream” measurement.

By attending this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Learn the proven, guiding principles that serve as the strategic pathway to achieving operational excellence in logistics and supply chain management
  • Map the extended enterprise value stream
  • Lead and make decisions based on Total Cost of Fulfillment
  • Uncover areas of waste to reduce lead time and inventory levels

Who Should Attend:

  • Leadership-level roles in manufacturing, supply chain, logistics, transportation, materials, and operational excellence
