How to Draw a Lean Factory - A short video about lean production

Ever think that there could be a better way?

I know I'm preaching to the choir, since if you're here, you're probably already on the path to a better way, a lean transformation!

Yet it always amazes me at how much waste is clearly visible around most production floors (and non-production areas!!). People do their work a certain way for so long, they don't realize that there could be an easier way to do things. They continue to live with chaos and stress in their lives, without investing the energy to make their own jobs easier.

I found this nifty little video that struck a chord with me. While describing the "Before" condition at their plant, the narrator says,

"We planned and re-planned work. It was chaos. We thought that was how it had to be!" 

Sound familiar to anyone? Too familiar.

Check out the video. There's some pretty cool hand sketching going on. And a nice description of batch vs lean production.
