Presentation: Learning To See - Making Value Flow From End to End

8/3/2012

What’s most  difficult in production often isn’t making the product but  organizing all the parts and materials that go into it, notes LEI CEO John Shook in the presentation “Learning To See: Making Value Flow From End to End.”

He covers how lean management developed to solve this problem from Henry’s Ford Highlight Park, MI, assembly line to  the development of the Toyota Production System. He covers key TPS elements and methods such as value-stream mapping, built-in quality, one piece flow, waste elimination, total system efficiency, and developing people as problem solvers.
