About the Seminar

For quite a long time LEAN manufacturing has been attracting attention and investments in the manufacturing world. It is claimed to be the reason that the Japanese industry was/ is so successful and don’t we all want to be as successful?

Still, in-spite of the huge investments made, and the multitude of manufacturing companies implementing it, results are far from the expected, and the western world manufacturing doesn’t turn Japanese.

Is LEAN suitable for every manufacturing?
Is everything under the LEAN umbrella an improvement?
Can it be that LEAN implementation will de-facto deteriorate performance rather than improving it?
Let’s find out in the Seminar!
