benefits of lean manufacturing  have estimated that the benefits of extending the lean methodologies and techniques throughout an interdependent supply chain network could be multiplicative, relative to the benefits derived from a single enterprise deploying the same tools solely at the shop floor level. While current empirical evidence is lacking, the research community expects objective and quantifiable data to support this hypothesis in the next few years as more deployments across supply chain networks become a reality. Meeting the Read More...
