Published in The Chronicle Newspaper of 2013 on the productivity column.,When one talks about World Class Manufacturing (WCM), they cannot avoid mentioning Lean Manufacturing. It is one of the WCM principles that were developed in order to minimize if not to eliminate waste in manufacturing. There is current concern in the nation about the relevance of the Distressed Industries Marginalised Areas Fund (Dimaf). This has been to date accessed by companies some of which are in the manufacturing sector. The disbursement has been done in order to facilitate capacity utilization and even survival for some. Reports coming through are showing that little progress has been made towards achieving the goal of industrial resuscitation using this route. This may be because of some underlying causes that are inherent in the industries that need to be addressed. I mentioned the adopting of World Class Manufacturing Principles in my earlier article. This article is meant to highlight how the Lean Manufacturing principle can be used to supplement Government efforts and support effective utilization of the DIMAF.
