Implementing Lean Practices in Distribution is a practical course, based on successful strategies we’ve personally contributed to, and spearheaded in the real world. With the goal of addressing today’s and tomorrow’s business operations, Lean Distribution tactics effectively tackle challenges in both customer service and distribution. Integrating concrete experience with the Lean concepts of Pull, kanban, cycle time reduction, and buffer against variation, this course examines a specific set of issues, and the corresponding Lean approach that was created to address them. The methodology taught in this course has not only been market-tested, it’s been proven to deliver genuine results.
The Lean Distribution course is analogy-based, making it easy for you to understand how and why the Lean approach provides authentic solutions. New terms are defined as they’re introduced, with a full description of how they relate to the distribution concept. The problem and solution framework encourages you to follow along, while you develop an understanding of the distribution changes that need to occur at both the plant/warehouse and supplier levels of your business.
By the end of the course, you’ll have a valuable skill set that will allow you to assess your current distribution methodologies, and greatly improve upon them in terms of flexibility and cost. You’ll learn how Lean manufacturing concepts can streamline product flow and customer service, while reducing costs and inventory. And you’ll discover the best designs for increasing overall profits. Finally, with a combined knowledge base of buffer inventory, replenishment processes, and Pull-based execution, you’ll learn everything you need to know to transition from a forecast-driven process, to a far more successful Lean-based Pull system.
