Admitting accepting adequate orders at fair prices, the aggregation has  battled to about-face a profit. In addition, a alternation of worker-led strikes accept bedeviled the company, which  has led to an ambiguous future. The operations department, headed by the capital protagonist, Stefan  Drees, endeavours to breach the issues through implementing Angular attack in the branch admitting a  abridgement of abutment from aerial management. Several initiatives are implemented with capricious degrees  of success.  There are two capital capacity that run throughout the case. Firstly, there is a able accent on the  company’s advisers and how Angular administration practices can abetment in convalescent a poor appointment culture. Fostering an across-the-board adeptness helps to advance abundance and agent happiness. The  added affair relates to activity improvement. The assembly processes are declared forth with  interventions that the operations administrator uses to accomplish changes in band with a Angular access to  problem-solving. ©Al Tareeqah Administration Studies - 2021 5 Case  It was backward July 2015 and a two-week bang at Nibbly Bits Bakery had aloof concluded with both  administration and the advisers activity aged by the experience. This was adequate an annual  accident and Stephan Drees, operations manager, sat in his appointment activity absolutely exhausted. He was  amenable for the negotiations and had proposed a allowance access beyond the lath in band with CPI  1 inflation. The abutment was accurate by about 70% of the advisers and had accustomed an  access of bifold the aggregate on offer, citation that the advisers were actuality paid beneath the  industry average. The accuracy of the aggregate was that the bang was not alone about the money, it was  additionally appropriate of alternative softer issues such as the attitude from administration that afflicted the  advisers daily. However, these were somewhat difficult to lath as a allotment of the wage  talks.  Negotiations amid Stephan and the abutment adumbrative had burst bottomward as neither ancillary was  accommodating to budge decidedly from their position. A accustomed bang was called, which resulted in the  accident of 16 canicule of production, admonition to about 120,000 boxes of rusks and alternative baked  goods. The advisers absent out on accomplishment and there was browbeating of the workforce who did not  choose to participate in the bang action. Ultimately neither ancillary acquired abundant afterwards a hardly revised  activity was tabled and accustomed afterwards the workers ran abbreviate on money and absent acceptance in the adeptness of  their abutment adumbrative to handle the matter. Stephan knew that aggregate was not able-bodied in the  aggregation operations. He was acquainted that both he as able-bodied as his absolute address Bernd Strauss,  assembly manager, had article of a acceptability in the factory. They were actively awful by the  boutique attic employees. Labour agitation on its own was bad enough, but the aggregation was additionally facing  aloft challenges elsewhere. For the aftermost few years Nibbly Bits had not been able to about-face a profit. The  operations administration was characterized by boundless costs, characterless productivity, and continuous  emblematic firefighting. The gross allowance was in band with industry figures; however, aerial staff  turnover, training costs, inefficient production, and alone artefact abundantly impacted the finances.  The approaching of the aggregation was threatened and article bare to change.  1. The Company  Nibbly Bits was an automated bakery based in Wellington, a baby boondocks in the affection of the Cape  Winelands District of South Africa. The aggregation functioned as a white-label architect with a  longstanding arrangement to accumulation Woolworths (a aloft South African aliment and accouterment retail chain)  with a ambit of handmade 2 exceptional rusks and alternative broiled goods.  The aggregation was founded in 1996 by Pieter Haasbroek who had ahead formed for Sasko, a  ample bartering bakery that articles added than a actor loaves of aliment a day. Sasko had  been approached by Woolworths to broil their ambit of rusks but had beneath based on the small  quantities requested at the time. Afterwards backward from Sasko, Pieter bedeviled the befalling and started  Nibbly Bits in a baby amplitude that Sasko allocated to him aural the Sasko bakery. Pieter afterwards moved ©Al Tareeqah Administration Studies - 2021 6 to a active 990m² branch in Paarl with about 60 employees. They began by baking rusks for  Woolworths as able-bodied as for Spar (another South African retailer).  After a abrupt antecedent acquirements curve, a able focus on affection ascendancy led to well-received products.  Stephan abutting the aggregation as operations administrator in 2003.  In 2004, the company’s success meant that it was accessible to body their own beyond 3,000m² factory  in Wellington to abode their growing assembly and agents accidental of 150 employees. By 2010,  Nibbly Bits had developed to 5,200 m² with 700 employees, of which 400 were abiding agents and 300  were accidental employees. Pieter Haasbroek’s son, Andre, abutting the aggregation at this time demography on  the role of CEO as Pieter began to footfall abroad from the circadian active of the company. It was  additionally at this time aback Bernd abutting Nibbly Bits in a assembly administration role. The aggregation was  reorganized into three abstracted divisions, including a biscuit factory, bite factory, and distribution  centre. Nine Nibbly Bits branch shops were afterwards opened about Wellington, Paarl and the  greater Cape Boondocks area.  There they awash burst rusks and alternative broiled appurtenances accounted out of blueprint for Woolworths.  The company’s able and constant advance followed the added acceptance and chump spend  on exceptional aliment products. The accelerated advance of Woolworths contributed anon to that of Nibbly  Bits. A able abiding accord had been congenital and maintained with Woolworths, and while this  ensured ample orders and constant production, Nibbly Bits was appropriate to assurance an exclusivity deal  with Woolworths, the capacity of which declared that they could not accumulation to any alternative retail chains.  The artefact ambit grew decidedly over the years. What began as a distinct rusk arrangement expanded  into assorted artefact curve including artisanal biscuits, cakes, rusks, savoury snacks, and popped  snacks. Seasonal orders such as Christmas-themed biscuits or shortcake additionally accounted for a sizable  allocation of the production.  2. The Industry  The Western Cape is home to best of the alcove aliment producers in South Africa. Nibbly Bits was  amid several suppliers to Woolworths in the breadth and activate itself in a bearings archetypal of the  industry. The socio-economic bearings in the Cape Winelands, and abundant of South Africa, meant that  abounding of the advisers had bound education, abundance and job prospects. Anniversary allowance earner was  about acknowledging an continued family. Overtime pay was awful adorable amid the employees,  and this added assets was about a call for affair their account expenses.  Unemployment ante of aloft 30% additionally meant that there was a aerial appeal for the jobs that were  available, admitting the industry’s about low wages. The amusing bisect in the industry was also  cogent as it was accustomed for administration to acquire 10 or alike 20 times the bacon of boutique floor  employees. ©Al Tareeqah Administration Studies - 2021 7 With the low apprenticeship and accomplishment levels, forth with a ample aggregate of chiral labour and little  automation, the administration arrangement in the aggregation tended to be actual hierarchical. There were  seven tiers amid boutique attic advisers from chief management, acceptation there was a  cogent abstruse amid the parties. Admitting jobs actuality awful valued, the agents about-face rate  was additionally actual high. This about occurred aback agents was absolved for one of several affidavit but  best about absenteeism. In band with South African law, aggregation action declared that an agent was  answerable to be absolved if they were absent afterwards acumen for three canicule or more, or if they missed  several alternative canicule and had beat their exact and accounting warnings.  Another affair in the branch was the akin of assortment amid the administration and employees.  Andre was Afrikaans, Stephan was French, Bernd was German, and the alternative advisers were  mostly of either Cape Malay or Xhosa descent. Additionally, the official accent of the company  was English, which actual few advisers batten as a aboriginal language. This led to challenging  communications at times.  Both Stephan and Bernd were pastry chefs by training. It stood to acumen that managers in the  industry had a accomplishments in food. Indeed, this able abstruse ability was an asset aback it  came to troubleshooting recipes and optimizing baking processes. Actuality chefs additionally meant they were  acclimated to managing a kitchen, about a high-stress environment, so affective from that to a branch of  700 advisers appropriate some adaption and a advance in administration acquaintance all-important for  beyond workforces.  3. Decision Time  After the bang was over, Andre alleged Stephan to a meeting. They badly bare to altercate a  way advanced and anticipate a reoccurrence. Andre additionally accepted to Stephan as he had done many  times afore that Stephan absolutely bare to advance his department’s ability through reducing  operating costs. About the aforementioned time, Stephan had been offered some company-sponsored  training days, in band with the aggregation action for agents who had been with Nibbly Bits for an  continued tenure. Stephan had called to do an “Introduction to Lean” advance at the Angular Institute  Africa in Cape Town.  Stephan had become accustomed with Angular a brace of years above-mentioned and had apprehend several books on  Toyota and the Toyota Assembly System. His antecedent compassionate of Angular was as a apparatus for  abbreviation decay in a company. At the time he activate it absorbing but had his doubts about how  finer it could be activated in a bakery ambiance breadth accumulation assembly was a necessity. ©Al Tareeqah Administration Studies - 2021 8 Many of the concepts he had apprehend about seemed rather abstruse and he didn’t anticipate he understood  the acceptation of “capturing the aspect of Angular management” or a “Lean cultural transformation”.  However, afterwards the advance he acquainted that he had best up some abilities and could attack a “Lean  implementation”. He was additionally now atrocious and accommodating to try anything. He articular that there  were absolutely aspects of Angular which could account the factory. Hopefully the branch would run  added calmly arch to added profitability, the aftereffect actuality that they would accept the option  to access salaries and apparatus benefit schemes, arch to happier staff.  Andre acquainted that the botheration was accompanying accurately to the advisers and that replacing as abounding of  them as possible, or alike affective the branch elsewhere, was the way forward. Stephan was of a  agnate assessment but acquainted it was account a try. He additionally had a cheating suspicion that management,  himself included, were accidental to the problem. Stephan was additionally at a date breadth he acquainted that  his job as operations administrator was no best progressing. He bare to either booty desperate accomplish to  apparatus some changes or abandon from his position and move on to article else.  4. Operations at the Bakery  The bakery ran on a three eight-hour about-face system, breadth the advisers rotated on a fortnightly  basis, about demography turns alive the night shift. Anniversary about-face was overseen by a about-face manager, who  formed the aforementioned hours as his or her team. Administration forth with aliment about worked  accustomed appointment hours, which accumbent with the day shift.  4.1 Ascent and Batching  The capacity were portioned for a batch. Firstly, a assembly adjustment breadth was accustomed and  printed. This breadth gave the batch’s artefact name, the accommodation of capacity forth with a  altered barcode identifier which followed the accumulation throughout the factory. Dry capacity such as  abrade and amoroso forth with adulate and milk were placed in ample artificial containers on trolleys in  alertness for mixing. A ascent breadth artisan appropriate it was difficult for one actuality to lift and  move a alembic already it was abounding of ingredients; at this point it could counterbalance up to 50 kg.  The attic breadth about this base was about chaotic with assorted containers. Aback several  batches were in the pipeline, and there were assorted containers accessible forth with a accessible supply  of aggregate materials, the agents in ascent tended to pre-assemble as abounding batches as accessible for the  day, behindhand of the appeal from the abutting station. ©Al Tareeqah Administration Studies - 2021 9 4.2 Mixing  This date was almost simple. The capacity were attenuated in ample mixers for 10 to 12 minutes.  Timing was critical: If the capacity were alloyed for too long, basics and bake-apple pieces tended to break  bottomward and the chef admixture became ever stiff; for too abbreviate and the capacity were not  abundantly broadcast and blended.  Batches were sometimes alloyed at a college amount than assembly could appointment them. This acquired a  accession of alloyed dough. The chef had a bound shelf-life already alloyed and could blemish if not worked  in time.  4.3 Production  The rusks were shaped and placed assimilate baking trays. The array of the chef bare to be  constant to aftermath rusks of compatible admeasurement and weight according to the specification. Division lines  were anxiously denticulate into the aerial apparent to acquiesce for accessible breaking afterwards baking.  Employees occasionally alone chef on the attic during this step. In band with the aliment assurance act,  this had to be alone as it was declared unfit for animal consumption.  4.4 Baking  The trays of rusks were afresh placed on alternating racks in paraffin-fired ovens at 180°C for amid 20  and 60 minutes, depending on the blazon of rusk. The ovens were programmable for both  temperature and baking time. Batches had been broke aback the amiss baking times or  temperatures were used, although this was not a accepted occurrence. 4.5 Breaking  After baking, the rusks were brittle but not hard. They were afresh breach forth the account curve by hand  application stainless animate spatulas. Some rusks were potentially compromised during this footfall if they did  not breach analogously and would afresh be brash branch abnormal and awash at one of the branch shops. ©Al Tareeqah Administration Studies - 2021 10 4.5 Drying  The afar rusks were placed assimilate racks in electrically powered driers. The rusks bare to be  placed on racks in a accidental order, altered from the arrangement in which they were broken. This  answer bigger dehydration as the asperous surfaces let added balmy air through to facilitate the drying  process. Relative humidity, as able-bodied as the ambient air temperature, afflicted the breadth of time that  the rusks bare to absorb in the driers. Cross contagion was a concern. It was all-important to  accumulate assertive batches afar from one another, for archetype the stronger aniseed-flavoured rusks  could not be broiled at the aforementioned time as buttermilk rusks.  4.7 Packing  The packing band had no automation because of the ample array of articles actuality arranged as able-bodied as  their about brittle nature. Woolworths branded packaging was supplied and afresh the products  were portioned, heat-sealed and arranged by hand. Some articles were arranged on quantity, for  archetype 12 Aniseed rusks, while others were abounding on weight. Woolworths defined aerial and  lower banned for artefact weights which had to be anxiously adhered to. The appointment at this base was  both time-consuming and labor-intensive and as such about a division of the boutique floor  advisers were based here.  4.8 Metal Detection  The closed boxes were afresh beatific through a awful acute metal detector. In adjustment to accede with  Woolworths’ affection standards, this footfall was all-important in the absurd accident that metal balance or  alternative pieces had attenuated the artefact at any date of the accomplishment process. If anything  was detected, the accomplished accumulation had to be pulled and the antecedent of the metal investigated. Obviously,  the detector could not ascertain glass, ceramics or alternative amoebic matter. If any adopted article was  arise by a customer, Woolworths issued a non-conformance apprehension adjoin their supplier as well  as a accomplished of about R20,000 per infraction. The funds from the accomplished could be acclimated for agents training purposes at Woolworths’ discretion.  4.9 Dispatch ©Al Tareeqah Administration Studies - 2021 11 Products were palletized and stored in an adjoining barn afterwards which they were alien to a  Woolworths administration centre. The akin of banal in the barn fluctuated based on demand  and assembly efficiency. Aback some articles could booty up to two canicule to produce, depending on  dehydration times, Nibbly Bits admired to accumulate a assertive akin of absorber banal to ensure burning celerity to  their customer.  5. Implementing Lean  Stephan bare to adjudge on breadth he would act. He had created an apprehension with Andre that  there would be actual improvements in the abbreviate term, so he bare to focus on these after-effects first  to accretion abutment for his Angular ideas. The abutting analytic footfall afterwards accepting audited the operations was to  activate targeting the accepted below fruit.  The afterward six-month aeon was active for Stephan. With the abetment of Bernd, he started  implementing changes in the factory. There was a accustomed ataxia of old machines and surplus  equipment. The account about befitting them had been that they may be bare for future  production. Afterwards allurement the appropriate questions, Stephan accomplished that best of the accessories had not  been acclimated for years and some had artlessly been dumped there aback they confused into the current  premises. The band-aid was to move some of the added admired accessories to a abstracted storage  breadth while the blow was disposed of.  There were alternative actual actual improvements that could be made. Surplus duke accoutrement were  removed, appointment spaces tidied up, and the actual items were color-coded per station. The factory  attic had ahead been demarcated; however, this had not kept up with changes in the  assembly curve and so band was activated to the branch attic demarcating breadth items should live  and breadth carts could travel.  Bernd lamented on the contempo changes:  “The branch absolutely looks smarter. We are starting to accomplish bigger in our aliment assurance audits as  well. The cardinal of non-conformances has alone badly from about twenty aftermost year  bottomward to about alone bristles per year aback we started accomplishing this.” ©Al Tareeqah Administration Studies - 2021 12 5.2 Implementing One-Piece Breeze and Pull  Stephan absitively that ascent and batching was the administration breadth he could agreement with  some Angular concepts, see the after-effects quickly, and afresh apparatus them abroad in the branch if  they were viable. He articular a botheration apropos to assorted batches of capacity sitting for  continued periods of time in accessible containers cat-and-mouse for mixing. The workers capital to arise to be  productive. As continued as there were adjustment cards, capacity to draw and containers to mix in, they  capital to aftermath batches for mixing. The batches would sometimes blemish at this footfall and needed  to be discarded. A change in mindset was necessary.  This was a absolute abode to alpha implementing jumpsuit breeze and afresh pull. He chose to comedy a  alternation of amateur with the workers in the administration to advise them the practicalities of the new  system. Afterwards allotment anniversary artisan to a station, they “manufactured” cardboard aero planes application the  Kanban system.  Everyone seemed to adore the exercise and butt the concept. However, a few canicule afterwards everything  accomplished aback to the old arrangement with batches afresh axle up. Afresh Stephan had a chat with  Fezeka, the administrator alive in the area. She appropriate that they use the trolleys as the  apparatus to run production. There would be alone two containers and trolleys in a bay at any given  time. The operations administration had purchased added containers and trolleys the antecedent year  with the hopes that it would abetment the department. Now they took abroad all but two per station: one  that could be accessible for mixing, a buffer, and one alembic that was in the activity of being  completed. This anon apparent the problem.  There was, however, massive attrition from some the advisers in the department. They had  ahead abstinent their own success through how bound they could activity the day’s batches,  which about complex a mad blitz in the aboriginal allotment of the day followed by abandoned time in the  afternoon. Stephan and Bernd bare to explain that they were not actuality advised on how quickly  they could aftermath all their batches but rather on affection and consistency. Gradually best of the  advisers broiled to the new way of accomplishing things.  A cull arrangement was alien through accouterment the adjustment calendar to the bond administration rather than  ascent and batching. Bond would alone accommodate the abutting adjustment to ascent and batching as they took  the absorber container. Again, this was acknowledged and afresh bare to be continued throughout the  branch processes. ©Al Tareeqah Administration Studies - 2021 13 5.3 The Boutique Floor  A year afterwards alpha Lean, Stephan commissioned a abstraction to get the boutique attic employees’ views  on the aggregation and what changes if any Angular had brought. The afterward are abbreviated quotes  from the findings, accurate collectively:  “We are usually afraid aback Stephan or Bernd airing about the factory. We are afraid that they  will acquisition article amiss and affair a warning.”  “Things accept improved, but we still charge to feel added admired and admired as advisers at Nibbly  Bits.”  “The acumen we accord to the abutment is because we are afraid about accident our jobs. It is a anatomy of  protection.”  “On Lean, we are on lath with the concept, about we do not feel as if we are a allotment of the  change initiatives and the activity is still actuality apprenticed by Stephan.”  5.4 Circadian Meetings  The operations administration captivated a affair from 9–10am daily. The purpose was to accumulate all  participants abreast and accountable. Typically, the attendees included Stephan, Bernd, who  chaired the meeting, the about-face administrator on duty, the packaging manager, and the maintenance  manager. The affairs had an calendar that was hardly followed and commonly the discussion  centered about firefighting, alternating issues, and blaming alternative departments breadth possible. The  affair about ran over time and about little was achieved.  A advance occurred in January 2017 aback Stephan implemented several aloft changes after  allurement for some affair admonition at the Angular training accident he had attended. He alien a “Lean  clock” breadth the affair was disconnected up by the minute hand’s movement, which the aggregation would  anxiously follow. He additionally removed the faculty of bureaucracy in the affair by allurement anybody to be  open, adage how they acquainted behindhand of who they were addressing. A abolitionist change was fabricated by  agreeable and including two boutique attic advisers to the meeting. These advisers were rotated  daily. The abstraction was that the advisers could accession issues that prevented them from accomplishing their job  effectively. ©Al Tareeqah Administration Studies - 2021 14 Many acutely baby problems with assembly were apparent by administration this way. The  alternative acumen for including the boutique attic advisers accompanying to their perceptions of management.  Actuality they were able to see that managers were additionally active and not aloof sitting in an appointment all day or  giving orders to employees. The advisers accessory additionally tended to accretion a akin of empowerment  and authority through accessory a affair with management.  Bernd, as assembly manager, additionally bare to track, and if necessary, flag, accomplish in the production  activity that bare attention. He alien a blueprint breadth affection ambit were advised as  either actuality adequate or unacceptable and apparent as either red or blooming on a chart. Over a  period, the blush patterns on the blueprint tended to announce which departments appropriate the most  attention. Accession blueprint which was adapted and discussed in affairs was anxious with tracking  ashen products. Alone batches at any date of assembly had a aloft appulse on efficiency.  The absolute amount of these losses was recorded account and solutions were discussed in the meeting.  Questions: (Minimum 1500 words for all the questions as a total)- 30 Marks 1- What are the challenges adverse Nibbly Bits company? 2- What is lean? what are its benefits?
