I had a really interesting conversation at the end of a workshop yesterday. The person I got talking to was concerned that although they now knew how to implement the changes they were unsure as to when they would be able to do the work - it just seemed like too much. The basic application of the Takt Time approach, that follows, was how we ended the conversation.
Recently I have been working with a client to help them bring a project back on schedule. The conversations that took place at the start of the project were interesting; we reviewed the targets that were set for the production rates within the project.
Another day, and another conversation about production losses. Why are they ignored so often? I do wonder if there is a lack of wanting to face the truth about the inefficiency of businesses that makes this the case.
