Areas of Focus
One of the most misunderstood elements of Lean thinking is that Lean is primarily about effective supply chain management. Therefore, we need to be able to answer the question "How does Lean apply to the supply chain?" Connecting Lean to supply chain management is the core purpose of Module 2. Students will build upon their knowledge in module one and learn how to apply Lean principles and problem solving to supply chain functions.
The overarching theme for module 2 is "systems thinking," where we understand how "pull and one piece flow" will lead to reductions to "total cost" of the supply chain. Students will once again be challenged to questions mental models such as economies of scale and replace them with mental models such as economies of time. Having completed module 2, students will not only be Lean problem solvers, they will understand how to connect lean and waste reduction to supply chain functions.
