Lean operations create more value for customers while  using fewer resources than traditional operations. In this assignment,  you will identify the business planning process for a lean management  operation by implementing an information system in a service or  manufacturing organization.

Choose a company different from those evaluated in  previous assignments. Examples of information systems that reduce waste  in organizations could include the following:

A new inventory tracking software
An electronic payment system for products and services (For example, a service organization such as a car wash that currently only accepts cash payments upgrades their systems to accept credit card and PayPal payments.)
A Web site to receive personalized orders from customers for a manufacturing organization
Based on your analysis of the company, address the following:

Explain the current business model and discuss the benefits of  incorporating the lean process. Describe a specific approach to  acquiring and using the lean process.
Justify the incorporation of a lean approach. Describe the potential  effect of the business growth as related to supply chain management.  Include safety and precautionary processes to protect the business from  fraud.
Examine the product components for the selected business operation.  Include the business management aspects of the process, in addition to  information on the following topics:

Purchasing operations
Outsource delivery
Lean tenets
The push-pull system
Create a 1-page, high-level flowchart of the process with a maximum  of ten activities. The flowchart should be precise and look  professional. If needed, you can download a trial version of visual or  graphic design software such as SmartDraw.
Write a 3–5-page paper, including the flowchart, in Word  format. Use at least three scholarly articles to complete your  research. Your writing should be clear, concise, and organized;  demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and  attribution of resources; and display accurate spelling, grammar, and  punctuation.
