Applications (20-30 min.) Implementation debate (20-30 min.) Wastes, and others) Concluding comments (3-5 Appreciation for the dilemmas min.) and challenges in lean implementation A visual record of where we are at in this module: Applications Implementation ion Mindsets History Conclus Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld, MIT 3/5/04 -- 2 Two mindsets Mass Production Mindset Lean Enterprise Mindset Producer push Customer pull Movement of materials Flow of value High volume Flexible response Inspection Prevention Expert-driven Knowledge-driven Decomposition Integration Periodic Continuous adjustment improvement Applications Implementation ion Mindsets History Conclus Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld, MIT 3/5/04 -- 3 Where to begin? An Exercise in Lean Thinking: Small groups of 2-3 people each assigned a number Even numbered groups: Describe a home workbench or a student dorm room used by someone engaged in mass thinking Odd numbered groups: Describe a home workbench or a student dorm room used by someone engaged in lean thinking Note: An option for this exercise would be to draw a picture on a transparency to illustrate you description Applications Implementation ion Mindsets History Conclus Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld, MIT 3/5/04 -- 4 Notes From Student Responses Mass Dorm Basic furniture bed, desk, shelf, chair All rooms the same Square, long halls and every floor the same Cheapest, reliable chairs Basic cleaning Wireless internet basic Workbench Excess materials, stock Lots of equipment Storage room Products stored in a room More than one bench Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld, MIT Lean Dorm Efficient use of space loft bed and under bed storage Combined desk Aesthetic and everything within reach Modular and reconfigurable furniture Large double pane windows New, good for you lights Wireless internet Workbench If not used, rent equipment Materials ordered based on projected use Quality materials and equipment Versatile and well organized Ability to design ourselves Ability to repair our own parts Outsource to others if they would be better to do it 3/5/04 -- 5 Historical context: The changing nature of work 1800 and earlier 1900 2000 and beyond Craft Production Socio: Mastery of Craft Tech:...
