Sample text

The key features and benefits of the approach is set out in the paragraphs below. An approach based on proven business models The combination of Lean Thinking (Womack and Jones, 1996) and Total Productive Manufacturing (Lean TPM) applies the proven business models of ‘world class’ manufacturing firms who have learned how to dictate the rate of change and competitiveness of their chosen markets. This incorporates a change process which is far removed from ‘blank silver bullets’ and whilst each company must develop their own unique approach, the model provides many proven design principles for managers and the workforce.

Both Lean and TPM have evolved in parallel from their early concepts and are converging towards a common goal. But who cares? As long as there are benefits all ideas are welcome. To understand what these are, it is worth taking a brief journey through the origins of both Lean Thinking and TPM. 2 The origins of Lean Thinking Sakichi Toyoda and his son Kiichiro, the family that founded the Toyota Motor Corporation, began to produce weaving looms and then cars in the 1930s. The approach taken by the family was to engage in a variant of flow production that later matured to become known as the Toyota Production System (TPS) and has more recently become known as ‘lean production’ (Monden, 1993).

So imagine the problem of large batch sizes, long travel distances and, hidden within these batches, defective products! UNNECESSARY MOTION occurs when the production process is poorly designed and operators engage in stressful activities to handle materials. This is an unusual waste (ergonomics), but as claims for repetitive strain injury rise many firms are facing large settlement fees from employee claims and solicitor bills. Lean TPM 29 first used the term ‘lean production’ to describe a new form of manufacturing developed by Toyota and adopted by most Japanese assemblers.
