Lean Production for Competitive Advantage: A Comprehensive Guide to Lean Methodologies and Management Practices
by John Nicholas
The Lean concepts and principles described in this book have revolutionized manufacturing practice and business conduct in a manner similar to what Henry FordÕs system did for mass manufacturing. Lean production however, involves much more than the adoption of methods and procedures, it requires a change in management philosophy that emphasizes relationship building, trust, and responsibility being conferred to frontline workers and suppliers.Based on three decades of teaching experience, Lean Production for a Competitive Advantage: A Comprehensive Guide to Lean Methodologies and Management Practices introduces the Lean philosophy and illustrates the effective application of Lean tools with real-world case studies. From fundamental concepts to integrated planning and control in pull production and the supply chain, the text provides a complete introduction to Lean production. Coverage includes small batch production, setup reduction, pull production, preventive maintenance, standard operations, as well as synchronizing and scheduling lean operations. Detailing the key principles and practices of Lean production, the text also:Illustrates effective implementation techniques with case studies from a range of industriesIncludes questions and completed problems in each chapterExplains how to effectively partner with suppliers and employees to accomplish productivity goalsDesigned for studentsÊwho haveÊa basic foundation in production and operations management, the text provides a thorough understanding of the fundamental principles of Lean. It also offers practical know-how for implementing a culture of continuous improvement on the shop floor or in the office, creating a heightened sense of responsibility and pride in all stakeholders involved, and enhancing productivity and efficiency to improve the bottom line.InstructorÕs material available Ð please contact: [email protected] or call 1-800-634-7064 to request these materials.
