M137 - Ongoing improvement


In  this unit we will explore how the Buffer Management process enables us to focus our ongoing improvement efforts. This will ensure that we continue to rapidly increase flow through the plant and increase throughput after the initial impact of the SDBR implementation. This, in turn, further reduces manufacturing lead times and improves due date performance and forms the basis of a sustainable and effective approach to ongoing improvement.
