Cover: Lean manufacturing concepts have been adopted successfully at many locations throughout the Army and Department of Defense. This issue contains several Lean “success stories,” beginning on page 2 with the events that
led up to the implementation of Lean concepts to the small emplacement excavator vehicle recapitalization program at Red River Army Depot in Texas. The program subsequently was expanded to include high-mobility, multipurpose wheeled vehicles (humvees). On the cover, Red River employees install splash shields on humvees being rebuilt on the Lean production line. In fiscal year 2006, Lean initiatives enabled the depot to improve productivity by approximately 75 percent and reduce lead times by approximately 70 percent.
