Description - On Time, In Full by Timothy McLean

"On Time-In Full" is an important work. Tim McLean provides an easy to follow practical approach to building a highly performing supply chain"

-Drew Locher, Shingo Prize Winning Author and Lean Thinker

The most fundamental requirement for a manufacturing or distribution business is to deliver to customers what they want, in the quantity they want, when they want it. It doesn't matter how good your product is, how much the customer likes your salesperson, how slick your marketing campaign is: If your customers can't get what they want when they want it, they will get it elsewhere, and your business will be in serious trouble.

On Time in Full: Achieving Perfect Delivery with Lean Thinking in Purchasing, Supply Chain and Production Planning is a step-by-step practical guide to designing a Lean Supply Chain that will deliver what your customers need, when they need it, every time.

Timothy McLean shares his three decades of Lean supply chain experience -- In simple straightforward language, he explores the reasons why supply chains fail to deliver and what you can do about it. On Time In Full includes practical guidance for tackling the big issues affecting supply chains including:

  • How to understand your extended supply chain with a value stream map
  • The role of forecasting in your supply chain and how to get a meaningful forecast
  • Calculating the right level of inventory for your business
  • Scheduling daily production to meet demand
  • Managing suppliers and your supply chain at home and internationally
  • Selecting and making the best use out of an ERP system
  • Designing an efficient distribution network

The book is full of practical case studies and examples as well as references for further study. On Time, In Full is the complete guide to setting up a supply chain that works.

Author Biography - Timothy McLean

Tim McLean was first introduced to Lean and Operational Excellence in the late 1980s as a young production manager of a small plastics extrusion plant, part of German global chemical manufacturer, Hoechst AG. Tim went on to lead a range of medium-sized manufacturing plants across the plastics molding, packaging, printing, and chemical industries for major companies, including Hoechst AG, Amcor, and PPG. Tim was fortunate to be coached by a succession of mentors steeped in the principles of Lean. As an operations manager and general manager, Tim then faced the real challenge of applying these theories to drive performance in his plants. After a successful 16-year career leading manufacturing operations, Tim turned down a transfer to Europe in order to set up TXM, a consulting business in Australia aimed at helping other manufacturing leaders like himself achieve their goals. TXM has since grown to be one of the leaders in Lean in Asia and the Pacific, operating from offices in Australia and China and carrying out projects with small, medium, and large manufacturers throughout the region. In line with Tim's experience and values, TXM has developed a reputation for delivering practical outcomes for manufacturers, especially SMEs. It is this experience that Tim has drawn on in writing Grow Your Factory, Grow Your Profits.Tim and TXM have an extensive network throughout the Asia Pacific region, and Tim is a frequent speaker at industry events, including the Association for Manufacturing Excellence Conferences, Lean Enterprise China, the International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineers, Australian Manufacturing Week, and many more. TXM has a weekly blog (www.txm.com.au/blog) to which Tim is a major contributor, and Tim's quarterly e-newsletter goes out to more than 2,000 manufacturing leaders around the region (www.txm.com.au/resources/newsletters ).Tim also provides articles to a wide range of manufacturing industry publications, including Australian Manufacturing Technology, Manufacturers Monthly, Australia-China Connections, China Sourcer Magazine, etc. Examples of these articles can be found at www.txm.com.au/resources/articles.Tim and TXM have a strong social media presence, primarily on LinkedIn, with over 1,000 connections, three groups (Australian Manufacturing Futures, Total Excellence Manufacturing, and Lean Support China), and regular and popular contributions to Lean interest groups across the globe. TXM also actively promotes its content via Twitter, Facebook, and a YouTube Channel (TXMLeanVideo)
