The Lean Daily Management System (LDMS) is a set of standard procedures that provides the structure and focus for intact workgroups with common tasks and deliverables to continuously improve their day-to-day work. It is a core means of engagement centered around a brief daily meeting at a primary visual display that contains metrics that the workgroup can control. Several components make the system complete and it is one of the most useful improvement mechanisms available today.
The core components of LDMS include:
- Primary Visual Display (PVD) board
- A daily Shift Start-Up meeting (SSU) (sometimes referred to as a huddle)
- 20 Keys action plan
- Kaizen Action Sheet (KAS) improvement system
- Metrics the team can influence and control
- Daily Short Interval Coaching (SIC) by supervisors
The Lean Daily Management System was created and trademarked by Kaufman Global. It has been applied to all types of industries, services and business types. It is second to none for workgroup engagement and performance improvement. Learn more about LDMS here: Lean Daily Management System and Lean Daily Management System Blog Post.
