Every day I scan a variety of sources to find the latest news on manufacturing, especially lean manufacturing, so I can bring the best to our readers. Lately I’ve been seeing more and more blog posts and websites that try to lure unsuspecting visitors by using popular search terms. They are really nothing except a bunch of advertisements surrounding a paragraph or two of text that happens to contain the search terms. Perhaps the fact that "lean manufacturing" is now considered a popular and potentially profitable set of words is an indication that lean itself is becoming more prevalent or important, but for those of us trying to find new lean manufactuing information, these scam sites are truly annoying.
Some of the more interesting of the scam sites are the ones that steal a paragraph or two from a legitimate website and then embed that text in a page full of ads. Some have even gone a further step by taking non-English text and then doing an online translation into English. I won’t link to the sites as the last thing I want to do is provide them with even more visitors, but here’s a rather amusing example I came across this morning.
Lean manufacturing is a playing action transformation agency that focuses on enhancing quality, cost, delivery, and people. It helps guy squander and makes constant transformation doable by identifying and eliminating non-value-adding activities in design, production, cater concern and management.

The exclusive mettlesome we requirement to be sensation at today is the digit that removes squander so the client sees more value.
In the concern of angle manufacturing, companies essay to display exclusive what has been demanded by the customer, and exclusive when the creation is required. To behave benefits of angle throughout the cater chain, it is primary to physique a partnership with your suppliers.

In this way, inventories are serviceable at their smallest for both moneyman and customer.
Achieving this take of consortium with your bourgeois module visit regular act and comprehensive distribution of information. Successful partnerships termination from tantalizing apiece another to strategic thinking sessions, present apiece other’s events and involved in another render activities.
Unlike some manufacturing trends, angle manufacturing appears to be here to stay. However, some firms are ease struggling to amount discover how to attain angle manufacturing impact for them. The denomination itself implies that companies module rise from the aggregation leaner than when they began. The constituent manufacturing suggests that the aggregation targets the manufacturing process, thereby making the products more consumer-friendly.
I thought about cutting out some of that long quote but it was just too amusing, not to mention completely unintelligible. But then I got to thinking about all the companies try to implement lean but get it all wrong. As Mark coined over at the Lean Blog, they are "LAME"… Lean As Misguidedly Executed.
Now I think I finally understand where they got their information.
