One more good book on lean logistics Feb 9, 2006
This book gives a good overall picture of lean logistics from different angles, not going into much detail. Must read for all exec level, who should understand the impact and benefits of adapting lean logistics combined with six sigma.
As authors mentioned, today many managements go after transportation expenses without understanding "total logistics cost". Who ever understand the concept of "total logistics cost", they will be able to derive advantages of lean logistics.
They say it can't be done... Dec 3, 2005
I would suggest this book to anyone interested in Lean, Six-Sigma, or Logistics. Dr. Goldsby and Mr. Martichenko take three subject matters and blend them into a well orchestrated logistics model that would make any logistics professional re-think the way s/he is executing their logistics plan. Anyone from a truck driver or dock worker to the CEO of a fortune 500 company could benefit from having his or her eyes opened to the amount of waste and imperfections that happen within the Logistics industry. It's surprising to think that so many companies are too busy trying to implement Lean and Six-Sigma into their production/outbound that they are losing money hand over foot with their logistics. Great Buy! Great Investment! Highly recommended!
