The Key Elements to Having a Lean Supply Chain

September 08, 2014

Take action and become a company that practices Lean Six Sigma by:

  • Having repetition/replication throughout different supply chains
  • Being cross-functional
  • Using technology where ever possibleiStock_000010123353HospitalLarge
  • Encouraging positive reinforcement

One obstacle that's in the way of adopting this lean system is a lack of trust. 

This obstacle has caused Healthcare, the only industry that has fully welcomed supply chain management, to fully use SCM. A key element to maintaining lean manufacturing is having an exceptionally accurate forecast. When you're able to keep suppliers and customers up to date with inventory and materials, control of production dramatically increases.
