Teaching Lean Accounting with a Manufacturing Simulation
The paper “Teaching Lean Accounting with a Manufacturing Simulation” was created to introduce college and graduate students to Lean Accounting principles. But you may find its explanations and simulation effective for showing finance and accounting professionals how traditional management accounting systems encourage behavior in conflict with lean by rewarding overproduction.
It won honorable mention in 2012 for the AICPA/Mark Chain Award for Graduate Teaching Innovation. The authors also received the Lean Enterprise Institute’s Excellence in Lean Accounting Awards for separate achievements in advancing lean accounting.
