Thats right. Japan. Go to Japan. Too far away, you say? I thought it was about the journey. This is where Lean practices began, and try as you might, you cant separate them completely from Japanese culture. If its your goal to prove otherwise, youd have to go to Japan anyway. Dont speak Japanese? No problem, there are a number of companies that provide translators along with Lean Japan Tour packages, where you can visit Japans top Lean companies. Of course, no Lean Japan Tour is complete without some cultural exploration. Get ready for great food, tea ceremonies, and karaoke (pronounced kah-rah-okay, FYI). Dont get too distracted though, and if youre an otaku, stay out of Akihabara at all costs (youll never get out).
Important factors to keep in mind are 1.) An understanding of the truck's Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) will help you decide which typeof truck fits your needs. The GVWR is an auto's maximum safe weight that should not be exceeded. Weight calculations include curb weight, additional equipment that's been added, plus the weight of cargo and the weight of passengers. Everything is considered to determine if the GVWR has been exceeded. Keep in mind, GVWR does not reflect a truck's actual weight , it's a limit. Actual weight is referred to as the gross vehicle weight, or GVW, and it changes every time you put something into the truck or take something out of it, from passengers to luggage to cargo.
Almost all vending providers have a pessimistic reaction when they are ask to supply a specific vending-machine for a precise job, so we use their negativity against them, here is what I am talking about. The normal vending machine-company only sets aside 10% or less for new machine purchase each year. This means if they don't already own the coin operated machine that has been requested they really think long and hard before they will buy a $5,000 piece of equipment.
Lean Supply Chain: One of the much talked about but hard to implement elements of the TPS based systems is a tight supply chain, or Just In Time delivery. This is a system that guarantees that your supplies will arrive just in time for you to get them into your production line and that your finished products will go out the door just in time to fill your end customers needs. This, in theory, keeps your storage facilities free of costly stocked materials and products for delivery. This is tricky enough in the best of times, but during the recent economic downturn, when many suppliers downsized, reduced their product lines, or just went out of business, it became a nightmare.
