This shows an impressive knowledge of the actual difficulties to implement Lean into an unstable High Mix Low Volume production environment .
Reading enthousiastic reports upon Lean implementation into medium size companies in France I had my doubts considering my 40 years of field experience with unstability. And also when discussing with production people faking enthousiasm but providing no concluding facts….
The author confirms there is a potential market for really adapting Lean principles to actual High Mix Low Volume production environment.
