Sensei club is a public welfare organization gathering excellent lean consultants, lean experts, lean change leaders and lean enterprise executives in the industry. Lean transformation is a marathon. Let's work together to pursue excellence and become an absolutely leading lean professional in the industry.
The lean transformation of an enterprise can not be separated from the collaborative lean improvement transformation of the supply chain. In the 1960s, Toyota, the originator of lean, helped the suppliers to make Heijunka in order to cooperate with their own JIT pull, and helped the suppliers to comprehensively promote lean transformation in quality, cost and lead time, so as to make itself and the supply chain develop the lean transformation in coordination.
Domestic enterprises are also promoting supply chain lean transformation to meet their own lean transformation needs, but there are few successful enterprises like Toyota. However, most enterprises only stay in their own factories and start to promote lean transformation. They are in the initial stage of lean transformation, and have not yet promoted lean supply chain. Promoting lean supply chain is an important part of lean transformation.
