Implementing Lean Practices in Your LBM Business


Lean management focuses on continuous improvement,and its techniques tackle the systematic reduction of waste. This can be accomplished through key best practices such as disciplined housekeeping and organization, reducing truck turnaround time, and implementing single-piece flow in your lumber and building materials (LBM) business. As well, solutions from LBM-specific providers, such as Epicor BisTrack™, can assist with lean processes, managing goals and tracking performance.Implementing Lean Practices in Your Lumber and Building Material Business
