Scheduling in a Lean world - applying Manufacturing principles across Operations, Logistics and TransportBook Now
Start Date:25/06/2018 11:00
End Date:25/06/2018 12:00
Event Code:ABC0607

Members from the IOM / BPICS days will remember hearing that our sophisticated (complex!) scheduling could be thrown away if we just adopted the Japanese JIT or ‘Lean’ model.  Kanban triggers by an assembly line would pass demand into component manufacturing shops and everything would magically turn up just as existing stocks were about to hit zero.  Lead times would be very short and nothing would ever get held up in a queue because plant would always be available just when required.  The people promoting such ideas, of course, didn’t grasp the fact that kanban was the last step, not the first, in the Japanese revolution.  Until we modelled our processes around Lean, we needed to use scheduling systems.  This webinar will explore the options available for traditional (Western) manufacturing and consider how we may be able to live without such tools.

Ian Henderson, Forum Lead for Lean, will chair the session.  As Operations Director of several major engineering companies over a number of years and having led a number of implementations of both Lean and scheduling systems (often combining the adoption of Lean with the reduction in the business’s reliance on software tools) Ian brings practical experience and his own war stories.  Hopefully, as always, delegates attending the webinar will have their own contributions to make.
