Lean Manufacturing can help your company deliver quality products on time, meet customer expectations at a competitive cost, while respecting your employees, the environment, and the community.
Our consultants train your operations and production teams to identify and reduce waste everywhere in your organization, from order entry, purchasing, or engineering to the factory floor. We apply a customized approach tailored to your company’s level of competency as well as its specific constraints, including production schedules and employee needs.
If you’re new to the lean methods or still in the early stages, we’ll work with you to build a firm foundation, typically by starting with 5S and standardized work. We introduce more advanced tools such as value stream mapping, kaizen, cellular manufacturing, kanban pull systems , and setup reduction as you need them.
