Juras, Paul E.
MetadataShow full item record
Jenny’s Cycle Components (JCC) manufactures a product used by an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for building motorcycles. JCC relies on vendors to supply parts it uses to manufacture its product for the OEM. Problems involving management turnover, on-time delivery, and variation in the quality of purchased parts have been highlighted by its Lean supply chain. These problems (as well as increased production volumes and price concessions demanded by the OEM) have resulted in reduced profitability for a capacity-constrained JCC.
