I retired from Ford Motor Company in 2001 after spending 28 years working in engineering. In 1986 I was fortunate to begin to work with Dr. W. Edwards Deming while he was consulting with Ford and assisted in running his 4-day seminars. In 1988 we introduced what we called Process Improvement which was a methodology similar to what later became known as Six Sigma. In 1990 we began incorporating Theory of Constraints and preliminary concepts of which would later be called Lean - looking at bottlenecks and flow, providing Just-in-Time replenishment and pulling instead of pushing products through the process. This eventually was formalized by 1995 into what was known as the Ford Production System modeled after the Toyota Production System.
Since 2003 I have been working as an independent consultant, applying Lean and Quality principles to help organizations improve in a variety of industries including aerospace, banking, electronics, oil & gas, commercial construction, healthcare and non-profits. I live in Ann Arbor Michigan where the skies are sometimes blue, but in the fall, everything in this town turns maize and blue!
