N’hésitez pas à me contacter si vous avez des connaissances à ce sujet, des idées de mémoire ou un retour d’expérience à partager.
Early production of products is also considered as "Excess finished goods inventory" in lean wastes. If early production is considered in both types of wastes such as 'overproduction' and 'Inventory', there will be the chance of recurrence of same waste in different categories. How to avoid this duplication?
If not forecasting, would you replace the forecast with a foresight prediction method?
We are entering the new year 2022 and it is at the turn of the year that many macroeconomic and microeconomic forecasts for individual markets and industries appear. On the other hand, companies listed on the stock exchange are happy to boast of their potential to create value in the first quarter of the year, present attractive forecasts of increasing sales, acquiring new customers and profits in the markets ... to tempt new investors into shares. Is it not sometimes as Peter Drucker stated years ago?
„The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
“Time is the scarcest resource. Unless it is managed, nothing else can be managed.”
What do you think about forecasting and planning the future?

In daily life single period and multi period inventory system is very necessary things. When the selling period is fixed that is we cant sell things outside that fixed time then it is called may be single period. Lets talk about it what is the actual definition.
Based on my experience, to start a lean culture in a leanness organization it all starts with the senior management and leadership team engagement. It is not something to be delegated to human resources area, and it is not only about outsourcing consultants. However, when the implementation phase is complete, the kick-off phase begins. This said, in your understanding what are the top lean culture implementation challenges to be addressed by a leanness enterprise?
I am a final year student of industrial engineering and management. I am searching for topics related to Lean management and sustainability for my master's thesis
Can you provide practical examples where you have reduced one of the following wastes:
While reading about high technological topics like dynamic scheduling in FMS in the context of Industry 4.0, being an Industrial Engineer, I find it very difficult to study about handling dynamic environment with codes. At the same time, I think this research topic is a hot area for research.
When I read about lean management tools such as value stream mapping. I find it easy. At the same time, I think this research topic is already being implemented everywhere and research papers are available with case studies.
Which topic should I choose? (trending+difficult vs easy+already implemented)
There are many literature that disscuss the lean production system to operational performance. However, I find a lack of literature that investigate Lean Production and Individual Performance.
Interestingly, lean production system is derived from Toyota Production System, which discuss the human factors as the most important things. Thus, this question remained in my mind and I want to see if there is any correlation between Lean Production and Individual Performance (Related to human factor).
I am really appreciate if you can give me a slight enlighment regarding this question.
In the era of information globalization, the technological revolution known as Industry 4.0 and the growing importance of implementation to business models of the principles of sustainable development, modern market management systems for operating business entities are being improved.
The current technological revolution described as Industry 4.0 is motivated by the development of the following technologies of computerized, advanced information processing:
Big Data database technologies, cloud computing, machine learning, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, Business Intelligence and other advanced data mining technologies.
In the context of the development of contemporary national knowledge-based economies and the development of information services made available via the Internet, the importance of innovative startups is growing, in which new categories of economic goods are created based on the application of innovative technological solutions.
In the second half of the twentieth century, various new conceptual elements developed (Benchmarking, Outsourcing, Reengineering, SMART, Just in Time, Poka Yoke, Kanban, Kaizen, Brain-storming, ...) and new business management systems (Business Continuity Management, Lean Management, Knowledge Management, Time Management, Risk Management, Total Quality Management, Virtual Organization Management ...), thanks to which the production processes, logistics, marketing, personnel management were improved, new participative management styles were developed, etc.
Therefore, please answer the following question:
What modern concepts of business management are adequate for currently developing innovative technology companies?
I'm looking for articles and reviews on any form of Lean Management - Six Sigma implementation in public sector activities.
Hi RG community,
I am scheduled to delivery a talk to undergraduate students and working degree professions and I need your suggestion.
What are contemporary supply chain problems that traditional lean six sigma tools cannot easily solve. The goal of my human engineering talk is to introduce machine learning and artificial intelligence to motivated students. Each student will understand supply chain fundamentals.
I look forward to your suggestions.
I think this is an interesting article. One thing that strikes me is that the suggested framework focuses mainly on output. A consequence is that positive results must be generated before an organisation can be identified as 'lean'. In my work, I have tried to identify a set of practices that could indicate whether an organisation is 'doing' lean. I am inclined to argue that this is not possible - at least not for organisations in the beginning of their lean journey.
Do you have a different opinion?
Interested in daily management system, scorecards, leading indicators, problem solving tools and other elements of Lean in HR.
I want to find an answer for that question to underly a proccess-optimization within the MARS Corp. concerning cross-segment order-to-cash processes.
I have performed comparative study of BIM site workflow with traditional workflow. What else should i do, to make it more valuable?
I am busy with studying Lean management and I am looking for research about Lean in finance. Can you give me suggestions about case studies specifically?
Im Working on Hibrid Methodologis and 2.0 Online Tools around Balanced Scorecard and Lean Management Best practices.
Dear All, we are doing project on Development of Model using Lean Construction Technique for minimising construction waste. for that we had frame a questionnaire so I request you please give your remark on questionnaire
For my dissertation i need some research articles to the Shikumi method, definition, how its applied, what is is etc. If it is in German even better.
thanks for any links send
Is there a general agreement on how to tell if a manufacturing system is efficient or not ?
I'm trying to design applied research (case study on leather industry) using six sigma implementation and lean management but problem is -there is not many enough literature and also nothing new that I can use as applied research. Is there anyone willing to share their thought?
Poka-yoke system is one of the lean tools where it is often used in manufacturing to reduce defect.
Is there a detailed analysis available regarding the extra-ordinary improvements achieved in the Formula 1 Pit Stop duration achieved in past years?
I want to use it as an example for my students and possibly create some exercises based on comparisons between past and current process.
Great if there is a VSM available for PIT Stop.
How to measure effect of lean management/lean practices on organizational performance? model, methods, etc.
I'm planning to introduce this concept for my working group (actual team size: 25).
Fields of application:
60% technology management data centre (SAN & Virtualisation),
20% development of new IT services,
10% help desk for customers,
10% pure research work.
Key point: trade-off between efforts (for introducing these concepts for the entire group) and benefits regarding process optimization & working efficiency.
I'm looking for both positive AND negative feedback.
Basically, I am working to identify lean, agile and lean practices that are best for cost reduction, lead time reduction and waste reduction. My problem is how to represent this mathematically.
Say lean practices = Li, agile practices = Ai, Green practices Gi.
Say a company utilised the combination L1, L3, L7, A3, A6, G5, G6 to achievea certain amount of cost reduction. And say I have a different/better set of practices that would achieve better/improved cost reduction.
What I am seeking is a relation that shows that/how my set of practices achieves better results. (Same for the lead time and the waste reduction).
I wish to know other point of view regarding the PEF, Product Environmental Footprint, and its applicability in companies. Off course, when PEF will be more than a "pilot project" or when the study phase will be finished, this could be another tool that could be quite easily applied for companies too, but my doubt is: PEF will be simply another environmental accounting system to be added to those already present? (like green label, EMAS, EPD, organic certification, environmental management tools, and so on...finally all the ways to comunicate to the market the link between products and environment). If this it's true, PEF, from my point of view, is nothing new, maybe it is more robust, clear, correct, complete, ot whatever you want....but from the consumers point of view.... it is just another tools that must explained...by highlighting the differences between all the other. In my opinion, companies, and the market, need "lean" management tools in order to obtain 2 goals: internally improve the process by finding the hot spots to be improved and externally comunicate all the efforts spent for a better environmental performance. Off course, already exist some practical tool to reach these objectives (LCA, green label, and so on)....but, in my opinion, there's still confusion because there are too many tools around a single topic
I wonder: PEF, what do you think about it? It could reach the objectives above mentionedin practice? Personally....I wonder if another tool quite close to a label could be helpfull...
Thanks to everyone who'll spend time to answer.
Lean has been introduced by TOYOTA as a manufacturing system and recently lean thinking has been implemented within services, healthcare, construction and other industries. Many authors argue that lean is only truly applicable to large scale production.
Information sharing and exchange between OEMs and suppliers is a new approach to enable responsiveness.
I want to do research pertaining to small wholesale distributors in the United States. I would like to either study lean success factors or identify the portion of wholesale distributors that have successfully implemented lean management concepts. This research is for my dissertation and I am required to use a pre-existing survey instrument.
Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
What's is the concept behind Lean Management
How applicable is it lately?
In other words is that reasonable for industry studies to divert their focus of attention to:
1. single industry studies thancross section of industries
2. studying the behavior/conduct of firms in the industry than industry concentration
Currently I am working on a project in which I should map the Value Stream of a service organization. Reviewing the literature, I found out that VSM approaches are mostly dedicated to manufacturing industries. However, I think for a service organization, in which customer flows in system VSM should be mostly related to queuing theory and system, but I am still not fully sure. I was wondering if you'd mind helping me with your answers.
I am currently busy with my research and continuously come across the phrase that procurement activities contribute positively to the bottom line, but have not really come across a method to quantify this 'positive contribution'. In a manner that a manager might be able to use in practice.
Advances in different areas are often offloaded into education. One concept that is currently being peddled in different areas is lean management. Outside of theorising, are there specific areas in which the principles of lean management can benefit education? Do the central principles of lean management converge with the goals of education or do they stand divergent to it? Does it bring a one size fits all scenario? Please let's have your views
I need free books, journals, presentation papers etc. on how lean technique is being implemented in recycling. Thank you so much.
Many researchers argue that EDI (i.e. Electronic Data Interchange) technology does not provide flexibility, arguing that EDI is out of date technology. To what extent is this claim valid? To which industry sector to this valid? What is the alternative?
Lean manufacturing has been widely used by manufacturing companies worldwide. However, the low rate of success towards lean manufacturing transformation in many countries has created a cause of concern. Many publications have pointed out that one of the reasons for the under performance is primarily due to a misunderstanding of the real concept and purpose of lean manufacturing. I am wondering whether this misunderstanding is due to less commitment by top management of the organizations or to the role of lean change agents. What about the contribution of lean consultants? Could they help to sustain the lean implementation?
Kaizen focuses on eliminating waste, improving productivity, and achieving sustained continual improvement in targeted activities and processes of an organization. It is typically implemented through frequent, structured worker-oriented events that last 3-7 days. Disregard rank. All team members are equal and everyone has something to contribute. It utilizes the analytical techniques such as 5 Whys and Value Stream Mapping. It can be applied in all types of organizations. Have you applied it in your organization or helped in another organization? If so what benefits were achieved? Any lessons learned during the process of application?
Data Lean Methodologies
My research is based on the knowledge management for construction. I am exactly aiming for Building Information Modeling (BIM). What information do you think would be relevant for me to collect through a survey if I want to tie it up with lean construction? Any suggestions on how I should proceed? Thank you.
Lean management refers to managers who maximize values for stakeholders at the least cost and with minimal wastage. It is doing more with less.
Of cource the objectives behind lean management and lean production are to do things better and faster, to avoid unnecessary tasks and to reduce waste of any kind in principle. I wonder if there is a difference in the concept and / or the meaning of "lean" at both levels ?
