One of the most misunderstood elements of lean thinking is that lean is primarily about manufacturing. Therefore, we need to be able to answer the question, "how does lean apply to the supply chain?" During this free one-hour webinar:

  • Dive into "systems thinking"
  • Understand how pull and one piece flow will lead to reductions to total cost of the supply chain
  • Be challenged to question mental models such as economies of scale and replace them with mental models such as economies of time
  • Connect lean and waste reduction to supply chain functions

Robert Martichenko will cover these areas and explain how each plays a critical role in creating a lean supply chain. The aim is to reduce the total cost of the supply chain–removing waste and creating the most value for the customer.

Those who will benefit from this webinar include:

  • Any company that is ready to go outside the four walls of its plant and connect the plant to the supply base using lean principles
  • Any professional who operates in a supply chain or logistics capacity looking to implement lean
  • Manufacturers and suppliers to manufacturers

Attend the free webinar and receive a promo code for $250 off your registration for one of the 2012 Spring Lean Supply Chain courses or sign up for the whole series for $6,000 (you save $1,200!).
