Contents:
Description of lean manufacturing. -- Five primary elements. -- Putting it all together. -- Case studies.
Summary: This book was written in order to give the general manufacturing practitioner a reference guide by which to lead the successful design and deployment of a lean manufacturing program. it is for those individuals who have either tried a lean manufacturing implementation and received undesirable results or have been working at it a while and do not really know what to do next. Over the years, i have become more and more pragmatic in my approach to lean manufacturing. I am not a purist when it comes to methodology. In fact, in this book i am sharing with you information based on my own personal research, true-life experiences, and lessons learned through the implementation of lean principles within a number of companies. It is this broad-based experience that has allowed me to develop such a pragmatic approach.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

There are some very good books available that explain the Lean Manufacturing theory and touch on implementing its techniques. However, you cannot learn "how to be" lean from merely reading the theory. And to be successful in the real-work environment you need a clear comprehension of how lean techniques work, rather than just a remote understanding of what they are. You need to know what does and does not work in different situations. And you need the benefit of practical experience in their implementation.<br> <br> Lean Manufacturing: Tools, Techniques, and How to Use Them gives you the benefit of author and practitioner William Feld's 15 years of hands-on experience - and the lessons he's learned. Feld provides insight into the appropriate use of assessment, analysis, design, and, most importantly, deployment of a successful lean manufacturing program. Packed with practical advice and tips but not bogged down in theory, this book covers how, why, when, and what to do while implementing lean manufacturing. It equips you with the tools and techniques you need along with an understanding of how and why they work.<br> <br> Feld explores why an integrated approach is so much more beneficial in securing sustained improvement. He focuses on the interdependency of the Five Primary Elements: organization, metrics, logistics, manufacturing flow, and process control. He describes a proven, applied approach to creating a lean program using these elements.<br> <br> To keep up globally, and even locally, your manufacturing operation must be responsive, flexible, predictable, and consistent. You must continually improve manufacturing operations and cultivate a self directed work force driven by output based, customer performance criteria. By applying what you learn from Lean Manufacturing: Tools, Techniques, and How to Use Them you can build a workforce - and an organization - with the capacity to satisfy world class expectations now and into the future.
