Lean Maintenance Repair and Overhaul describes how MRO organizations can achieve significant improvement in financial performance by applying the Theory of Constraints (TOC) to guide the implementation of Lean manufacturing tools. This Lean/TOC approach facilitates a growth strategy by providing customer value, such as faster turnaround times, that the competition cannot match. Lean/TOC creates the capacity for this growth by eliminating waste.

This practical guide shows how Lean/TOC also provides the improvement strategy for dealing with the variation that distinguishes MRO from high-volume, repetitive manufacturing. The methodology expands the improvement efforts beyond the manufacturing floor to make the organizational changes needed to facilitate growth and toempower the workforce to be enthusiastic participants in the improvement processes. You will learn how these concepts have been applied to MRO organizations in the commercial and defense sectors.
