Short course teaches lean thinking to improve businessPublished Sep 08, 2013
Texas A&M University at Qatar, in collaboration with the Global Supply Chain Laboratory at Texas A&M University in College Station, will offer a two-day short course in Lean Supply Chain Management on 22-23 September. Lean thinking is one of the most important business process improvement methodologies and focuses primarily on removal of waste. The primary effect of practicing lean is reduced flow time. In addition, a lean approach leads to other secondary effects such as improved quality and reduced variability due to simplification, standardization and/or elimination of processes in the value stream.
