The Lean Benchmark Report

Recommendations for Action

Based on survey participants’ responses, Aberdeen has divided manufacturers into three categories according to our competitive framework: best in class (those who have em- braced Lean and made it part of their corporate culture), industry average (companies that have implemented Lean in some facets of the business but have yet to complete the

journey), and laggard (those who are just learning about Lean and/or are meeting with some resistance). Here are our recommendations for each group:

Best in class: Raise the performance bar with Lean Six Sigma; balance long-term strategy and short-term profit objectives; improve supplier collaboration; sustain Lean momentum and cul- ture.

Industry average: Create a culture of Lean; im- plement TPM (total productive maintenance program); conduct Kaizen Blitz workshops.

Laggard: Map the value stream from customer to suppliers; improve organization of the work environment; implement basic Lean production techniques; prepare for more frequent and more stringent product launches.

Competitive Framework Key

The Aberdeen Competitive Framework defines enterprises as falling into one of the three following levels of practices and performance:

Laggards (30%) —practices that are significantly behind the av- erage of the industry

Industry norm (50%) —practices that represent the average or norm

Best in class (20%) —practices that are the best currently being employed and significantly su-

perior to the industry norm
