Abstract

This presentation chronicles the incredible journey that organizations must take to move from the old and archaic world of fat and high cost operations to the new world of lean, low cost, high quality, agile, adaptable and highly productive world-class operations. We must all take the same journey from fat to lean. This workshop provides supply managers and others knowledge and supply management tools to build more effective global supply chains and operations. Our discussions include problem identification, solution techniques, waste, constraint theory, mapping, best practices and the incredible short and long-term benefits available to everyone.
