LEAN Supply Chain to Be Introduced to the Shingo Prize Community
"Most companies today are looking at the value stream within their four walls," says Lail. "While we continue to see huge gains from those efforts, the reality is that portion of the value stream is typically a very small piece of their total supply chain. LEAN Supply Chain looks at the entire value stream from originating supplier through manufacturing and distribution to the end consumer. Ultimately, linking supply chain value streams from multiple customers creates industry-wide value networks, which is where market domination by participants is inevitable from the operational efficiency perspective." Eric Lail will be joined by Sophie Dabbs, director of Supply Chain Solutions from Transportation Insight, at booth No. 21 during the conference.
