Chapters 3, 4, and 5 go into detail on the principal elements in lean management. The point to emphasize in this chapter is the way the elements combine to form a system. 1). Think of three principal elements as representing major parts of a car: the engine, transmission, and controls. The fourth element is the fuel. 1 Making lean management go. 23 24 ◾ Creating a Lean Culture The Principal Elements of Lean Management In lean management, leader standard work (element number 1) comes first. It is the engine.
37 38 ◾ Creating a Lean Culture Leader Standard Work Is Process Dependent Leader standard work also provides a foundation for continuity in lean management in a unit. Each time a new team leader or supervisor starts work in a lean area, things should continue to operate much as they have, assuming the process has been in a satisfactory and stable state. In batch operations, in contrast, one often sees a “new sheriff in town” mentality accompanying change from one supervisor to the next. That is, in these circumstances the management system depends on the person.
Here is why. If the process were a perfect system, it would always run as designed and always produce consistent results. A real-world system requires periodic maintenance and occasional intervention and repair to continue producing results. The more complex the system, especially the more automated it is, the more maintenance and repair it requires. It may not seem like this should be true, but it is. A more reliable and flexible solution usually is to rely less on automation and more on people and simpler equipment.
