• Organizational Styles used before and afterwards In Air Speed Journey
In this case study, “AIR Speed Journey” by Goldartt explained the transition of methodologies took place by Naval Aviation Enterprises (NAE) in 2001. This transition was to achieve the Goal to make the aircraft ready at the right time, right place and in the right configuration. To accomplish this Goal, NAE was facing many troubles such as increased demand by 10%, cost cuts up to $1.5billion, inventory and maintenance of aircraft. Uncertainty of demand increased the inventory and operating expenses. To achieve reduction in inventory and maintenance cost any organizations not only require to increase the speed of production, but likewise the production should be in

• Implementation of different methodology
In Air Speed Journey
A. The series form in which the methodologies were implemented and result achieved using them are as follows.
1. Naval Air Station in San Diego first implemented the Theory of Constraints in 2002 which reduce the repairs by 80%, maintenance by 15%, wait time by 95% and eliminated out of stock. Theory of Constraints (TOC) was invented by Dr. Goldartt in his book “The Goal” which states that the processes are interdependent and demand is variable, hence to achieve the Goal or profit, integration of the processes is a most important step. In other words linking the supplier, processes and customers to get faster, better and cheaper product. Theory of Constraints is used to see the bottleneck which slows down the process and reorganizing them to reach a gain.
2. And so they implemented Lean in 2004, in their repair division which reduced workplace. Lean manufacturing is applied to get rid of all non-value added steps of the procedure so that providing the best merchandise to clients. Lean was first invented by International Motor Vehicle Program but Taiichi Ohno had already implemented Lean in Toyota Production system. Ohno eliminated seven wastes such as overproduction, over processing, delay, inventories, defective parts, transportation and movements. Lean consists of many tools such as just-in-time, Kanban and etc.
