VSM: Is there anything else you'd like to share with the readers?

LH: Introducing a lean approach to a manufacturing process can have an immediate, positive impact on your efficiency and productivity. A lean approach teamed with the statistical rigor available through valid, verifiable simulation and the synergy and capability of simulation software is an ideal fit. For those wanting to adopt new techniques, SIMUL8 simulation software can be incredibly helpful. Discrete event simulation software, like SIMUL8, does accurately show how a process will behave, both before and after implementing Lean. It means you can get the Lean implementation right the first time. Chrysler, Ford and General Motors have adopted this approach and at a recent SIMUL8 user group for car manufacturers, the ‘Big 3’ shared best practices and covered how simulation is helping them revolutionize processes.
