Proven strategies for achieving continuous process improvement

Strategic Continuous Process Improvement helps you understand the various tools and methodologies available, which tool to use, and when to use it. The book gives you a strategic way to look at continuous process improvement (CPI), the information needed to review a problem, and then properly define its characteristics. From these characteristics, a choice of CPI methodology or methodologies will evolve and emerge. Selecting the right tool will then define the overall success of the CPI process.

Reducing inventory... Product leveling... Strategic alignment... Total productive maintenance... Benchmarking... Supply chain collaboration... Statistical sampling... Process management... Eliminating waste... Companies today are faced with a lot of pressures, and are forced to reinvent themselves and keep improving in order to stay in business. But which methodology will work and be foolproof? The choices are often overwhelming, including criteria outlined by the American Society for Quality Six Sigma; The Lean/Toyota Production System; Theory of Constraints; ISO 9000; American Production and Inventory Control Society; and the Supply Chain Council. Too many organizations are failing to be competitive, not because they cannot solve problems, but because they don't know which problems to solve and which tool to use. This book clearly explains how to identify problems and select the appropriate tool(s) to solve them.
