Lean Supply Chain Workshop Details
One of the key highlights of today's workshop on lean supply chain is the advanced heijunka "grocery" simulation. Heijunka, which means to "balance out load" in Japanese, is a term used to describe an ideal state when the supply and demand are in continuous balance.
Developed by LSI, this heijunka simulation takes almost 3 hours to run but participants learn a great deal about the purpose and meaning behind heijunka, kanban, and lean supply chain.
