The Great LEAN Bake-off

The purpose of this booklet is to kill once and for all the very non-constructive debate about whether companies should adopt a strategy of Lean/Six Sigma, Supply Chain Optimization or as is currently the ‘vogue’ Demand Driven MRP.

My intention in doing this is to explain how rather than being mutually exclusive – Six Sigma, LEAN and Supply Chain Optimization are in fact symbiotic philosophies.
