This technically advanced, yet practical book offers insights on Accuride’s successful Lean journey. It is written for Lean professionals and senior leaders who have had exposure to Lean tools, techniques and terminology.
The title summarizes a powerful formula from Accuride’s Lean journey. From one of the co-authors, “Based on our experience, on average, achieving a 50 percent reduction in lead time enables our teams to increase productivity by an average of 50 percent and reduce cost-per-unit by an average of 20 percent. Our book shows others how they may be able to achieve similar results.”
