Abstract:

The case is based on a real manufacturing situation; however, the company and industry are disguised. KCC manufactures a product used by an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) in building motorcycles. KCC relies on vendors to supply parts used in manufacturing its product for the OEM. Problems including 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 KCC. What’s unique about this case is that it puts students in a situation to identify issues exposed by Lean implementation, make recommendations to management on how to increase production to meet increased demand without further investment, and do so profitably.
