Businesses can cut costs by heeding the lean work force principles outlined in Kronos' latest white paper. By implementing these practices, manufacturers have improved everything from operations to productivity to resource utilization.
A lean enterprise is a business system to organize and manage product development, operations, suppliers, and customer relations. Companies use lean principles to do business more efficiently and with less space, capital, and time than conventional mass production.
Work force is critical to the success of a lean business. Manufacturers can identify non-value-added labor, measure and manage variability, and motivate workers to ensure labor is most efficient. Kronos' report offers additional advice for implementing these practices.
