HICKORY, N.C.-- Eric Lail, vice president of LEAN Performance Solutions for Transportation Insight and one of 250 Shingo Prize Examiners, will be attending the 2012 Shingo Prize International Conference in Jacksonville, FL, April 30 – May 3, to introduce the LEAN Supply Chain concept to the Shingo Prize community. The Shingo Prize is an award given to companies worldwide that are implementing LEAN business processes throughout their enterprise.

"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.
