Hitting the Continuous Improvement Wall

Overview:

As one of the three pillars of Lean, the workforce has long been recognized as critical to the success of operation. But in practice, because an individual’s impact on an entire operation in terms of delay can be small, managing the individual is often moved down in priority. But viewing the cumulative impact of small variances across an entire production team and supporting staff is something an individual can’t see. The value of the effort is found in identifying and systematically managing common, small variances across the entire workforce.
