The NWLEAN PULL-Ads™ Program is provided to our sponsors and other product/service vendors so they have an alternative means of informing visitors to the NWLEAN website about their products and services.

The THOUSANDS of visitors of NWLEAN are very internet saavy, and they have a unique interest in products and services which will support their lean implementation efforts. Moreover, it can be difficult (on the rest of the internet) to find products and services from vendors which specialize in supporting lean systems. Also, visitors to our website have become accustomed to NOT having to deal with unwanted pop-up ads, banner ads, and unsolicited sales intrusions.

What are PULL-Ads™?
In a lean environment, the concept of 'pull' is used to control production, reducing many of the wastes found in normal production environments. 'Pull' refers to the action by downstream work stations (and eventually the customer), which pulls a needed item, sending a signal to the upstream process that production and begin on the next item. (This is contrasted with a PUSH environment, which is common in production today, wherein each work center produces as much as it possibly can, and 'pushes' it's product to the next station, whether they need it or not!).

PULL-Ads™ use this concept of allowing the customer to 'pull' information at their own speed, as much as they need, right when they need it. And since NWLEAN doesn't use cookies or java-applets to collect information about our visitors (and they know it!), they can feel free to get the most out of your ads, and contact you as they see fit.

The PULL-Ads™ program supports members, visitors, and vendors by providing an alternative. By posting ads on the NWLEAN site, visitors can browse them as anonymously as looking through a catalog, with the added functionality that the internet provides.
