You are the director of a US-based plant manufacturing hybrid cars, selling to two regional markets.
This plant is in trouble. Senior management is concerned about high delivery delays, excessive inventories, unpredictable supplier performance, and a wide variation in production levels.
You've been charged with implementing a Lean Manufacturing program with an objective of resolving these concerns. You have 8 months to fix the problems at your plant.
You may schedule production with either a Push system based on long-term forecasts or a Pull system in which you change production month by month.
You will be scored on how well you provide reliable deliveries to customers, keep inventories low, and maintain level production.
