Abstract

Woburn Safari Park (WSP), a 48-acre safari park in Buckinghamshire, England, has implemented lean processes with the help of Carnfield University's manufacturing department, to achieve financial security and provide the country with a premier leisure destination. Business benefits through lean on the low-cost, low-risk, and high-impact safari park project explores various routes to new capability and access to existing expertise at the university. The aim of the lean project includes an understanding of relation between customer expectations, analyzing processes to determine value flow, and ensuring improvement sustainability. The downstream dispatch network includes storage locations and distribution and feed to the park animals. The upstream information flow includes the dietary demand of animals and orders based on aggregate requirements across teams.
