Customers would be much happier if manufacturers could eliminate waiting. Accounting systems, and the way we use them, play an important role here. However, if time is a key item, why are traditional accounting systems still being used opposed to alternative systems that value and measure time? Why are we still making use of traditional product costing and cost allocation approaches when time-based accounting does not lead to waiting times? After implementing QRM successfully, the next step would be to reconsider and adjust your accounting methods in order to achieve shorter lead times and better results. So, if this is the only step we need to make, then what are we waiting for?
