Lean-Centric Information Systems and Technology Webcast
Your factory has adopted the Lean philosophies of flow, small batch, cellular manufacturing. Materials are being procured using visual signals and kanban. Production is paced based on customer demand rates or takt time. What does it mean to me? Is there a role for information system technology anymore?
Lean-centric information systems are developed -- or, usually, re-developed -- to optimize appropriate and timely data distribution throughout the enterprise. Adding value to the firm's products and customer relationships is the overarching focus of this investigation.
A lean IT department is one where lean principles have been applied to internal processes. At a minimum this improves flow for user application enhancements and first pass yield. This area of knowledge is just emerging.
