APICS Granite State Chapter and IMANH

Co-Sponsored One Day Seminar


March 12, 2008

NHCTC – Pease Int’l Tradeport – Portsmouth, NH

Presenter: Brian H Maskell from BMA Inc.

Lean manufacturing and traditional accounting systems do not mix. Traditional performance
measurements are harmful to lean because they motivate non-lean behavior. Standard costing was
designed to support mass production; but is misleading, wasteful, and harmful to companies pursuing
lean thinking. Most company’s accounting, control, and measurement systems are far from lean; they are
filled with thoroughly wasteful actions, transactions, reports, meetings, and activities.

Lean Accounting is a great deal more than just applying lean thinking to the bookkeeping. Lean
Accounting answers the question; “How do we measure, manage, and control a lean operation?”

This fast-paced seminar is designed for operations managers, controllers & accountants, lean
specialists, and other managers & lean leaders. You will be introduced to a series of practical and proven
methods providing a truly lean accounting, control, and measurement system. Lean accounting actively
supports lean thinking, provides the vital information needed to build a lean business, motivates
continuous improvement, and is itself simple, straightforward, and lean.

In this seminar we will cover in detail the following concepts:

• Why Traditional Accounting & Measurement Systems are Actively Harmful to Lean Thinking
• How to Understand the Financial Impact of Lean Changes – and How to Make Money from It.
• How to Eliminate Waste from Your Accounting and Control Systems like Shop-Floor Control,
Purchasing, Inventory Tracking, Accounts Payable, and Financial Reporting.
• How to Generate Financial Information that is Understandable and Actually Helpful to Run the
• How the Accountants and Controllers can Truly Become Business Partners on the Value Stream

Emphasis will be placed on the lean principles of value to the customer, working by value streams, flow
and pull instead of push, continuous improvement through empowered teams, and the pursuit of
perfection. We will show how these lofty goals can become a reality in your product plant through the use
of the right measurements, financial reporting, and simplification.

By the end of this seminar attendees will understand why traditional accounting and measurements are
hostile to lean improvement, the primary methods of Lean Accounting, and how to implement these
simple yet powerful methods.
