Кузин Д. А., Немцева Е. А.

The article describes the results of the application the "Lean Production" concept at the structural division of the telecommunications company «Vimpelcom», in order to increase the efficiency of procurement business processes. The relevance of the topic is specified by the needs of the local companies that are forced into difficult economic conditions to improve the efficiency of their activities not at the expense of investment, but a result of the organizational improvement. The concept of "Lean Production" is one of the currently available ways to reach this goal. The article elaborated Lean - measures aimed at improving the efficiency of the purchasing department and carried out assessment of the economic efficiency of their implementation. As a result, the value stream analysis suggested a simplified diagram of the procurement for special corporate credit cards for payments with the approved suppliers and a simplified speed control circuit, when the complexity of the procurement approval process is determined by the sum of the payment. The methodology for the rating of complex assessment of supplier performance is described according to the "Lean Production" concept. The method and results of calculating economic efficiency of the four alternative options are given for the use of the resources dismissed as a result of Lean - reforms; in particular it is proved that the best alternative is the employment of the released purchasing department employees after retraining. A special reporting tool for lean production - Box Score, which allows considering not only the financial results, but calculating the degree of resources utilization (productive and nonproductive time e.g.), is applied for the first time in domestic practice.
