I am honored to be a one-day (September 13, 2016) guest instructor at the University of Wisconsin, Marathon Campus class on “Process Engineering Teams“.
An additional, extremely important topic is empowered work teams.
While preparing the presentation, it occurred that I needed to let others know the material is available.
My company Affinity Systems needed a training program capable of moving projects rapidly through the classroom to positive results on the shop floor.
My book, ERP Lessons Learned – Structured Process, is a product of real-time systems projects. Chapter 9 includes a summary of ACTION, our Six Step problem solving methodology, a synthesis of Lean, Six-Sigma, and Theory of Constraints (TOC).
ERP Lessons Learned – Structured Process:
Chapter 9 Continuous Improvements – Perfect the System
When the core ERP project, the information super highway is completed, it is time to “show me the money,“ and the goal changes. The new objective is to perfect the system by squeezing the waste out of all business processes.
The VMP removes the barriers that prevent the system from operating at the speed of reality. Few, if any, ERP installations reach ROI goals without some type of improvement program
ERP and VMP are systems that help us optimize yield and reduce waste. We must preserve our valuable resources.
Objective – be LEAN and GREEN
