HOT in Lean: Construction
Bob Mann
Taking the lean practices used for so long in manufacturing and applying them in construction is the next big push. Construction is full of waste and using lean principles the industry will be able to improve.

HOT: Lean Consumption & Lean Provision
Satish Talikota, Management Consultant, India, Member
I have recently did a book review - "Lean Solutions: How Companies and Customers Can Create Value and Wealth Together" by James Womack & Daniel Jones. They explained the symbiotic relation of lean consumption & lean provision when lean needs to be implemented. Check that out you will be very happy to have these concepts known and then apply.

Hot Topics in Lean: Lean Outside of Manufacturing
John Hardwick, Business Consultant, United Kingdom, Member
Lean outside of maufacturing is a growth area. Particularly lean in healthcare (and service provision generally)
I am leading work in my company on applying lean principles to B2B sales.

The Benefits of Using AI and Robotics in Lean Management
Ger de Waard, Management Consultant, Netherlands, Premium Member
There are numerous benefits of implementing AI and robotics in Lean management of your work process:
  • LOWER COST OF WORK. It actually costs less than paying employees, especially in the long run; it can be more reliable, more efficient and more productive.
  • INDEPENDENCE. It doesn't depend on the majority of external factors, which means an increase in the overall productivity. It is practically not affected by distractions, work fatigue, or drop in standardized production values.
  • DE-STRESSED EMPLOYEES (i.e. No more Muri) If the majority of the work process is automated, workers have more time to spend on creative tasks; they also don't have to worry about every single detail, which means they can focus on the “big picture”.
  • HIGH PRECISION AND ACCURACY. There is no fear of error-making, since everything is automated and worked out down to the core level. For example, robots are much more effective at detecting than humans, and software is much more.
