Half delivery time makes double profit.
Clear Stream Manufacturing(CSM) is a scenario for changing business process and organization in the manufacturing companies. CSM shorten delivery time and create a lean structure that can adapt to changes in the business environment. Time, process and organization are visualized for KAIZEN.
Top grade process is a main elements of CSM. KAIZEN for half delivery time are carried out practically.
The effects obtained are
process speed and profit are increased,
"when" "who" "what to do" is determined,
determination is actually take place.
Shorting delivery time one month increases cash corresponding 1.5 to 3 months sales.
Sales is increased
by efficiency of the operating activities,
by decreasing order backlog,
by customers who seek a quick delivery,
by preceding profit of new products.

Cost is decreased
by the latest material prices,
by the latest cost-down design,
by reducing purchase managers,
by reducing defective product.

Inventry is decreased
with increasing cash changed from inventory,
with reducing unsold discount,
with reducing the disposal product,
with reducing the interest burden of inventory,
with reducing warehouse rent and manager,
with reducing cargo handling.

"Who do it?" "When you did it?" are repeated,
KAIZEN by small team,
Repeat continuously.

Is there any such symptoms?
Late delivery are rapidly increasd when orders are increased. There is a "flow volume problem". You must have spare capacity expansion.
Late delivery are not increasd when orders are increased. There is a "flow speed problem". You must reduce the stagnation of the process.
