Building and Managing the Lean Supply Chain 2004, M. The Supply Chain 1st Tier, 2nd Tier, , Suppliers Enterprise Distribution Channels Customers The Supply Chain 2004, M. Develop Systems Thinking Lean supply chain principle 1: Improving the performance of every subsystem does not necessarily improve system performance. The sum of local optima does not equate to the global optimum. Improvements in subsystem performance must be gauged only

through its impact on the whole system. 2004, M. Systems Thinking and the Theory of Constraints Find the essence of each situation, like a logger clearing a log jam. The pro climbs a tall tree, locates the key log, blows it, and lets the stream do the rest. An amateur would start at the edge of the jam and move all the logs, eventually moving the key log. Both approaches work, but the essence concept saves time and effort. Almost all problems have a key log if we learn to find it. -- Fred Smith 2004, M.

Steps to Build Lean Supply Chains

Develop a systems perspective Understand customers and their expectations Map the supply chain Benchmark best practices Design products and processes to manage demand volatility Create flow across the supply chain Develop supply chain metrics 2004, M. Develop a Systems Perspective For any decision you take consider the following. Does the decision: Help you sell more products? Help reduce investments in resources? Help reduce payments/expenses? 2004,

M. Understand Customer Value Critical step: provide what the customer wants Providing the wrong product or service in an efficient way is muda. Eg. Air travel An opportunity for kaikaku (dramatic change): Rethink the delivery system on a product line basis with strong dedicated product teams 2004, M. Understanding Customer Value Identify market segments Document the following:

Customer values in each segment (order qualifiers and order winners) Delivery cycle/time expectations of customers in each segment 2004, M. Market Segments: Example %age Orders Market Segmentation Graph 60% 40% 20% 0% Staple Stock Direct Seasonal Freight Market Segment Product Type

2004, M. Customer Values in Each Segment Staple stock (e.g., Stationery) Direct freight (e.g., Sony DSC-S30) Availability (qualifier), cost (winner) Product design (qualifier), quality (winner) Seasonal Convenience (qualifier), availability (winner) 2004, M. Map the Supply Chain The set of all actions required to deliver the finished

product or service to the customer Seeing the Whole (Systems Thinking) Systematic study of the value stream often reveals a staggering amount of muda Need to map the whole process, and identify value-added and non-value added activities across the value stream 2004, M.

Benchmark Best Practices Lean supply chain principle 3: Focus on customer needs and process considerations when designing the product delivery system. Enterprises can gain tremendous competitive advantage through best-in-class practices that cut across industries. 2004, M. Designing Products and Processes: Coping With Demand Volatility Can you smooth demand volatility? Key observation: Much of the demand volatility is selfinduced Sales promotions and rebates End-of-the-month syndrome (Channel Stuffing)

Batching New product introductions 2004, M. How Can We Reduce Demand Volatility? Have no promotions Reduce lead times and produce in small lots Postponement strategies Exploit product structures Exploit commonality and delay commitment Aggregation 2004, M.

How to Manage Demand Volatility: The RAP Principle Before Raw Material Fabrication Sub-Assembly Final Assembly Finished Goods After 2004, M. How to Manage Demand Volatility: The RAP Principle Lean supply chain principle 4: Maximize external variety with minimal internal variety. It is desirable to maintain inventories in an undifferentiated form for as long as it is economically feasible to do so 2004, M. Managing Demand Variation

As far as possible, avoid using inventory to buffer variation Less chances of misallocation Inventory seriously impedes flow Lean supply chain principle 5: Buffer the variation in demand with capacity, not inventory 2004, M.

Product Delivery Strategies: Product Structures Build to stock (BTS) Finished goods made in anticipation of demand. Customers orders are met from inventory Assemble to order (ATO) Subassemblies produced according to forecast. Required items are drawn from wip and assembled when orders are received. Very little finished goods inventory carried 2004, M. Product Delivery Strategies: Product Structures Build to order (BTO)

Products built in response to actual customer orders. Usually these are standard products with a few options Engineer to order (ETO) New product designed and produced in response to specific customer needs. Lead times include relevant elements of engineering design and manufacturing 2004, M.

2004, M. Create Flow Creating flow requires a systems perspective Lack of flow results in inventory or work imbalance somewhere in the supply chain Improved flow reduced lead times To create flow, all processes should row the boat at the same pace the concept of flow balance Suppliers Facility Customers 2004, M.

Creating Flow To enhance flow, use pull signals for execution where possible Lean supply chain principle 6: Use forecasts to plan and pull to execute. A system that reacts to pull signals will have less variation than a comparable system that adopts a push mode of operation. 2004, M. Develop Metrics Using a Systems Perspective Tell me how you will measure me and I will tell you how I will behave. Does the metric: Help you sell more products?

Help reduce investments in resources? Help reduce payments/expenses? 2004, M.
