Page 6: Conclusion
Lean production is all about reducing waste. This involves working more effectively with TAKT time (the time available to produce each car). The teamwork approach is a recognition that the best way to achieve this is for all members of the workforce to be involved to achieve a quick response.
Lean production has enabled Jaguar to cut out waste in the production of the Jaguar S-type at Castle Bromwich. Ford is now seeking to spread the message about lean production by incorporating a total of 400 of its Halewood employees into working at Castle Bromwich. The successful implementation of lean production at Jaguar will form the benchmark for the systems introduction at Halewood.
