Active Lean Implementation at GE Manufacturing Plant

This was a cool find for me today.  It shows a GE plant in Kentucky seeking to improve efficiency through lean practices.

It starts with mapping it out with an  enormous Ishikawa diagram, or fishbone chart, then moves onto a 1/4 scale mockup of the plant using homemade models, then to a full-scale mockup of how the layout footprint will look with actual life-size mockup machines, belts, products, etc.
