 Applying lean to the supply chain is a hot topic. While lean operations can produce significant benefits to an organization, the greatest benefits will not be realized unless lean is extended beyond the organization to involve both suppliers and customers.

Lean Supply Chain: Collected Practices and Cases provides a variety of case studies taken from articles previously published in Lean Manufacturing Advisor -- the monthly newsletter by Productivity Press.

Highlights include:

Practical, in-depth descriptions of lean supply chain issues - including supply chain strategy -- most of which have not been described in other publications, written in a conversational, easy-to-read style. A large quantity of case studies unavailable from any other single source. Real-world information about the practical issues of managing the lean supply chain and working with supply chain partners. Articles are categorized in three areas -- Supply Chain Strategies, Building Partnerships, and Improving Distribution - for easy reference.
