Lean Phase: Supply Chain and Key Activities 

Assumption: It is possible to independently and reliably create Buka stoves in Fiji from imported materials at a rate high enough to keep up with demand, in an ethical, safe and quality controlled way.

Time Box: 2 weeks initially, with a further 1 week allocated for each iteration required 

Success Metric:

Metric – 50 stoves moving through the supply chain from start to finish with no help from PEV, with performance assessed and iterations made every 10 stoves.

Green Light – If 90% of stoves are able are able to be ethically and safely made to a high standard and be reliably provided to distribution channels, then the next step is to hire long term staff to allow the business to run independently through to July.

Orange Light – If less than 90% of stoves are able to be ethically and safety made to a high standard and reliable be provided to distribution channels, then iterations will be made to the supply chain stage that is causing the failure. These may include additional training, increasing incentives or disciplinary action and adding more stringent policies, dependent on the scale and severity of the failure.

Red Light – If less than 30% of stoves are able to be ethically and safety made to a high standard and reliable be provided to distribution channels then new partners are to be sought for the supply chain stage that is causing the failure.

Experiment Build:

1. Secure a partner for each step of the supply chain (materials sourcing, transportation, manufacturing, branding and user manuals, transportation),

2. Create training modules for each step of the supply chain, including ethics, safety and risk and mitigation measures,

3. Train each partner in their section of the supply chain,

4. Ensure adequate communication between sections of the supply chain,

5. Analyse supply chain process every 10 stoves (by inspecting both the finished products and following stoves along the supply chain – including spending time in workshops or riding with them in different transportation methods),

6. Assess performance of each step of the supply chain and iterate as above.
