About the course

All manufacturing companies must produce products that: (1) customers want; (2) at a price they are willing to pay; (3) at an acceptable level of quality; and (4) with reliable delivery to customer sites. LEAN techniques and cultures have surely helped many manufacturers meet these customer expectations. But LEAN can help us do more… much more.

This program demonstrates specific LEAN management techniques used to improve manage supply chain risk, improve supplier performance and delivery performance, solve specific supplier dysfunctions, and systematically drive supplier prices down. Many of these techniques are modified from tools typically used to improve factory performance.

For example, Capability Analysis was originally designed to provide an early warning indicator that indicates something has changed in a particular production process… before that something has an opportunity to destroy quality. Applying this tool to a supplier’s factory (that makes your components), yields IMMENSE benefits in predicting quality and timeliness of inbound supply to support your factory’s production needs.

Participants will learn about and apply the more important and appropriate LEAN tools to help predict and reduce supply chains risks. Participants will also develop a priority plan for the selection of LEAN tools to suit their particular supplier risk profiles. Technical, organizational, cultural and behavioral impediments to supplier risk management will also be addressed so that participants can return to their respective companies and begin implementation of these techniques immediately.
