6 Key Metrics for Measuring Lean Success

Cover

For most manufacturers today, Lean is a priority. Every company strives to deliver what the customer wants, when they want it, at the highest feasible quality and at the right price. But delivering on these objectives requires operational measurements to align the organization and evaluate progress.

Many of the Lean manufacturing metrics are the same or similar to those of traditional manufacturing organizations. But Lean metrics focus on value streams, not the entire production process, and are focused on continuous improvement, not the judgment of people or managers. Lean metrics are also reported frequently, not just monthly or quarterly, so that problems can be identified quickly and resolved.

Have you implemented measurement programs to help accomplish this goal?

Featuring experienced Lean practitioners, this webcast will examine the key operational metrics you need to measure your Lean initiatives:

Throughput by Customer

Inventory: WIP, Raw Materials, Finished Goods

Cross Training

Cycle Time

Rework
