Lean Consultancy

We offer lean manufacturing solutions by reducing waste and increasing efficiency using lean tools in design, distribution, manufacturing and customer service processes.  We help individuals and organisations understand and implement lean process.

 

We do this by working with you to address and define performance gaps that need to be closed, developing both your capability to improve the flow of value to your customers and the problem solving ability of your people so that you can sustain the gains and continuously improve.

 

We use CAD to design the layout of the shop floor as well as design & manufacture specialist lean manufacturing tools. A 3D model of your floor layout is optimised for production so that you can track the tool/racking/material flow and get a good understanding of the single piece flow before implementation and heavy investment in tooling.

 

Our key capabilities and business process improvement tools include Ad hoc reporting (SQL), tool design & manufacture (Solidworks), floor plan (AutoCad), and training of employees to be able to maintain Lean principles. This ultimately helps businesses in eliminating mistakes, inconvenience and delays and makes process faster and smoother.

What is Lean Manufacturing?

The core idea of lean manufacturing technology is to minimize waste within manufacturing systems while simultaneously maximizing productivity. This technique enables you to deliver high quality products at significantly lower costs. Some of the principles of lean system include:

  • Pull processing
  • Perfect first-time quality
  • Waste minimization
  • Continuous improvement
  • Flexibility
  • Building and maintaining a long-term relationship with suppliers
  • Automation
  • Load levelling
  • Production flow and visual control

It is through these means that lean helps productivity. It simplifies operational structure to understand, perform and manage the work environment.
