6 Points to develop a Lean Strategy


To start the Lean Journey you have to define and develop a Lean Strategy.

In this video, we tried to draft a roadmap in 6 points.

1º – Resolve as much as possible the quality issues, as well as wasted time and other problems that produce instability in the flow.

2º – Make possible that parts flow as fast as possible with U shape cells, avoiding process variations.

3º – Process must be standardized as much as possible and stabilized along the different processes.

4º – Start using pull, don´t withdraw material till you get a demand from next process.

5º – Try to reduce production batches, increasing the deliveries and leveling the internal demand.

6º – Do Kaizen every day to improve the process.

We used this path and worked perfectly.

It is hard but the results are great.
