Going lean, step by step
Once confined to the automotive industry, lean principles are becoming standard operating procedure in many industries today. The reason is simple: when implemented with a good performance management system, lean principles have a proven track record of operational and strategic success, which ultimately translates into increased value to the end customer.
This paper illustrates how IFS Applications support lean principles, particularly in the many manufacturing environments that require both rate-based and order-based shop floor execution. This hybrid approach lets you go lean step by step, as you are able, not because an inflexible system forces you to do so.
