James Womack has concluded 5 basic theorems based on lean production derived from TOYOTA management module. They are: 1.Confirm value. 2. Confirm value flow. 3. Make fluent on value flow. 4. Build up pull system. 5. Aspire perfect. This study is focused yacht company A with two subcontracts of supply chain on the performances of value chain to execute collaborative production and lean management’s mechanism. By mean of impact comparisons and systematic analyses while conducting collaborative and lean system, a correct way and condition for promoting the value chain are found and given.
After company A adopts the collaborative activities proposed in this study, the overall performances of the value chain have significant improvements. These improvements include shorten period of a yacht from order to delivery, reduced loss arising from the stalled process, promoted value rate obtaining from the value analysis and found process defects with solution. Through information share, supervision and performance evaluation, supply chain lean and joint relationships are intensified. Except for the abovementioned collaboration modus and steps, a leader with sufficient faith and confidence is also a determinative cause.
