The Czech Mate Case Study
Please help me with an executive summary report for the Czech Mate Case. It should include exhibits and thoroughly address the following questions:
1. How does Carrier and Kallish's new cell design eliminate the wastes of the current production process?
2. If the proposed design were implemented, how should the cell be staﬀed?
3. How should Carrier and Kallish proceed with their work? What should they do for the rest of the week to maximize the chances of success?
4. Please provide a brief summary of the operational beneﬁts of implementing single piece ﬂow vs. batch processing. What are some additional managerial and economic considerations that you need to account for when deciding to implement one over the other? What types of waste (muda) are in the current production process of the cell and how does Jake and Dan's new cell design eliminate them?
