Business & Management / Lean Methods & Implementation
A company with effective cost reduction activities in place will be better
positioned to adapt to shifting economic conditions. In fact, it can make the
difference between organizations that thrive and those that simply survive
during times of economic uncertainty. Reducing Process Costs with Lean,
Six Sigma, and Value Engineering Techniques covers the methods and
techniques currently available for lowering the costs of products, processes,
and services.
Describing why cost reductions can be just as powerful as revenue increases,
the book arms readers with the understanding required to select the best
solution for their companys culture and capabilities. It emphasizes homegrown
techniques that do not require the implementation of any new methodologies
making it easy to apply them in any organization.
The authors explain how to reduce costs through traditional Lean methods and
Lean Six Sigma. They also present Six Sigma cost savings techniques from
manufacturing Six Sigma, services Six Sigma, and design for Six Sigma. The
book also presents optimization techniques from operations research methods,
design experiments, and engineering process control.
Helping you determine what your organizations value proposition is, the text
explains how to improve on the existing proposition and suggests a range of
tools that vary in complexity and capability to help you achieve this goal. Most
chapters include a rubric at the beginning to help you determine the levels of
competence required to perform the tasks outlined in that chapter.
