Lean Six Sigma Got Everything Wrong About Lean - a post by Erwin van der Koogh | LeanBlog.com

Lean Six Sigma Got Everything Wrong About Lean - a post by Erwin van der Koogh | LeanBlog.com | TLS - TOC, Lean & Six Sigma | Scoop.it

The one thing that Lean Six Sigma got wrong can be summarized in three words: “Pretty Much Everything.“ In 2002, Michael George and Robert Lawrence Jr. published Lean Six Sigma: Combining Six Sigma with Lean Speed, a book that started a revolution that quickly took hold in boardrooms around the globe. Total Quality Control and Six Sigma had always appealed to senior managers, but now it came with the added bonus of increased speed and reduced cost. It was a very welcome addition in the post “dot-com bubble” era and was always too good to be true. My beef with Lean Six Sigma, however, is that as far as I can tell there is almost nothing in there that resembles the Lean I know and love. …

Eli Goldratt (founder of the Theory Of Constraints) 2010 Interview by Clarke Ching

Eli Goldratt (founder of the Theory Of Constraints) 2010 Interview by Clarke Ching | TLS - TOC, Lean & Six Sigma | Scoop.it
Back in 2010, I spent an profoundly interesting hour chatting with Eli for my podcast. There's audio, a transcript, [...] I hope you find it interesting. And useful. And not too sad.

“Please, don’t take it as arrogance! When I was 20 years old, on my birthday, I committed to my goal in life, so yes, in a way, it was all planned. My goal in life at that time was – and still is – to teach the world to think. And that’s why I went to learn physics, I wanted to teach myself to think, not in order to learn physics. So in a way, yes, I’ve seen it. But, at the same time, I can tell you without any hesitation, I never believed that I would live long enough to see what I’m seeing now. It’s beyond all my expectations.” — Eli Goldratt, 2010, interviewed by Clarke Ching

Lean is Tough – The Phases of a Lean Transformation - Chris Roser | AllAboutLean.com | TLS - TOC, Lean & Six Sigma | Scoop.it
Sometimes, consultants sell lean as a quick and easy way to success that pays for itself. Unfortunately, this is usually not true, as many companies have found out the hard way. Getting lean in a company is similar to getting a lean body; it is usually neither quick nor easy. Let me show you the different phases of a lean transformation.

A Comparison of Re Order Point and DDMRP by Ted Titmuss - 11 mins

In this video I look at the difference between the Tradition Re-Order Point and the new Demand Driven Material Requirements Planning systems and see which performs best, and why. I see I made an error in using the wrong formulae for Re-Order Point, however, in this case, it makes no difference to the resulting comparison. Re-Order point is Demand in the Lead Time plus Safety Stock, not Order Quantity divide by 2 plus Safety Stock, which is Average Inventory. In this example, both formulae give the figure of 18, so the Re-Order Point is correct.

Drum Buffer Rope variants | Focus and Leverage blog by Bob Sproull

Drum Buffer Rope variants | Focus and Leverage blog by Bob Sproull | TLS - TOC, Lean & Six Sigma | Scoop.it

[...] Drum Buffer Rope Variants. Simplified Drum-Buffer-Rope (S-DBR) [...] assumes that the constraint is external to the system and resides in the market segment. [...] In this situation, the constraint becomes interactive by moving between the market constraint (external) and the production constraint (internal). This oscillating cycle between internal and external constraints can cause its own brand of chaos in deciding which market segments should be pursued and which ones might be better left alone. Either way it is a decision that must be dealt with. [...]
Multiple Drum-Buffer-Rope (M-DBR)
There is another unique situation that can require the implementation of a third type of Drum Buffer Rope, known as Multiple-Drum-Buffer-Rope (M-DBR). ...
