Lean Asset Management--Is Preventive Maintenance Anti-Lean?
How can we determine the right maintenance strategy for a specific asset? To meet the objectives of lean, we need to evaluate the cost of failure in terms of

lean line  applying the principles of lean tells us that unnecessary maintenance is waste. Just like inventory not needed at this time is waste, maintenance tasks done before they are required are also a waste. When preventive maintenance tells us it is time to perform a maintenance routine, the question is, could we have waited or eliminated this routine without a negative impact on the asset's ability to meet the business objectives? We cannot know what would have happened after the preventive maintenance routine Read More...

lean line  has done well at lean execution and dishing burgers out fast (often in one minute), but the problem occurs with make-to-order (MTO) requests like I would like no onions, with five tomatoes instead, and I want American cheese instead of Swiss cheese, please. Thus, the franchises still have to stock finished goods buffers that cater for the demand pull, and the replenishment tact is adjusted to the buffer. Consequently, standard finished products are served from stock, while any special orders will take Read More...
