implementing lean  Guide to Implementing Lean in Distribution This whitepaper is a guide for distributors on implementing and integrating lean practices into their businesses. Lean is not just a tool, but also is a culture, philosophy, process, and methodology. A main goal in becoming more lean, to become more efficient and profitable at every iteration, can be brought about in ways such as analyzing end-to-end processes and determining how to deliver more with less and becoming more organized. Improved results Read More...

Finally, when implementing TOC and DBR, an enterprise often will conduct a comparative analysis of production for all its manufactured items, only to find that, for many items, the full absorption costing was the exact opposite of what one would expect from TOC in terms of realizing increased throughput. Outside expertise often helps with both the required change in mindset, and the more technical aspects of TOC. Thus, it is highly recommended that system experts and TOC experts are not Read More...
