Implementing Lean Practices in Your LBM Business
An LBM Journal Webinar featuring Scott Morrison, presented by Epicor Software
Join Scott Morrison on February 22, 2018 for the inaugural LBM Journal webinar focused on lean best practices for the lumber and building materials business.
Lean management focuses on continuous improvement, and its techniques tackle the systematic reduction of waste. This can be accomplished through key best practices such as disciplined housekeeping and organization, reducing truck turnaround time, and implementing single-piece flow in your business. As well, solutions from LBM-specific providers, such as Epicor BisTrack, can assist with lean processes, managing goals and tracking performance.
In this webinar, Scott will discuss best solutions to eliminate waste and streamline your processes, including:
- Reducing motion and transportation in both yards and production.
- Reducing waiting and turnaround time in the yard.
- Appropriate inventory turns (not too much, not too little).
- Increasing picking efficiency in the yard,
- Using tools and business intelligence to track goals and performance, with examples from Epicor.
