Inventory is one of the lean manufacturing “seven wastes” – a necessary evil, some might say. Successfully managing and minimizing inventory involves understanding some basic principles, establishing a rhythm, and applying discipline to day to day practices. Inventory is an area where problems are easily made visible and readily measurable. Applying continuous improvement principles can result in significant waste reduction. In this class we will explore both lean and traditional inventory management principles and how companies can effectively implement those principles and reduce waste.
