Lean Planning Methods
Lean philosophy dictates only making what the customer wants when the customer wants it. If a business truly focuses on this, then all sorts of benefits accrue such as less finished goods stock, less wastage, released capacity, better responsiveness to customers and shortened factory lead times, which all lead to bottom line benefits.
A lean strategy achieves this through the application of ‘Pull’. Sometimes though true Pull is not achievable, but there are other alternatives that will move a company closer and therefore will provide a large proportion of the benefits.
We can help you develop your planning philosophy and methods to give you the benefits of Pull.
