Purpose of Assignment
The purpose of this assignment is for students to evaluate the lean techniques applied to business in today's workforce.
Select a business you are familiar with which incorporates lean manufacturing or lean supply chains. (An idea I had was using the FedEx Company since I have heard they use lean manufacturing or supply chains).
Evaluate how this firm uses lean strategies and how much lean techniques has improved the firm's efficiency.
Evaluate ways the firm can go even further to make improvements using lean techniques.
Use the results you obtained from evaluating this firm to apply to your own business or a business you are interested in which currently does not use lean. (For this, I am having trouble to compare FedEx with another company, does not necessarily have to be in the same industry, that does not use lean techniques to evaluate and explain in detail)
Develop a 1,050 word report or more in which you describe your lean evaluation project.
Format your assignment consistent with APA guidelines. (use APA citations and references with direct scholarly source web links). No Plagiarism and will be checked!
