    Making Productivity Result from Lean Programmes?



    Both UK Manufacturing Output and Value increased steadily from 1945 to 2007, but in the last 10 years have stalled.  Many Food & Drink manufacturers have embarked on Lean programmes, and M&S have even introduced Lean audits across their suppliers, but why are these improvement programmes not having the impact on productivity that might have been expected?  Jeremy Praud explores what makes Food & Drink Manufacturing different to Automotive, where the opportunity for productivity improvements can be found, and looks at the steps being taken by leading FMCG businesses to optimise the rate of results, and ensure they hit the bottom line.
