Lean

I just spent the entire day conducting Lean Manufacturing classes.

I proceeded to then come home and eat ice cream.

I am so......not lean.

As long as you ate all of the ice cream I think you're ok. If there was some left over then you're not lean. Or was it if you ran out you're not lean?

why is it that every single thread I have read today at some point mentions ice cream (including the one in which I was the first person to mention it)?


must be a sign

So long as you had single piece flow I think you're OK. Are you saying you didn't eat it right out of the container? That would be a problem ... and ... not lean.

After something as mind numbing as that, I will feel no pain that any hill in New Glarus can offer.

JIT is fun up until you've got a supplier out of stock, a client screaming at you, and you pay a premium to some secondhand shop to get what you need.

As long as it works 90% of the time, though...


....mmm Ice Cream......

After a night of watching what people cough up at the hospital ... I have no appetite for ice cream.

Contrary to popular belief I actually made it interesting. No one fell asleep and that is a first for here. I had them moving around and "producing" product and timing processes though...

Glad I stayed in physics.

Engineers have way more fun than I could handle.

Gee, I didnt get to do anything remotely fun today, well, except for when I got to Tase a defense attorney at a bar association meeting. I was asked to come in and do a demonstration on Tasers and one brave soul, (fool) actually cowboyed up and took a ride. Only 3 seconds, not the full 5 like us real men, but what the hey, he's an attorney, not like he's human anyway. (I'm just kidding for all you attorney's out there)

JIT? We refer to it as "almost in time."
