Avoid Waste – Increase Value
Consistently focusing a business on customer requirements is a guarantee of success for every company – and the ability to react continuously to new requirements ensures future success as well. In addition to methodical know-how, this requires a corporate culture that calls for and promotes change.
Design your Lean Management System with us: Together, we identify your value drivers, maximize your added value and implement a sustainable change culture.
Each production system has its very own character, which can be described by product variants, repetition frequencies and processing times. Together with you, we identify the essential characteristics and success factors of your production system and develop individual solutions using the methods of lean management in order to achieve maximum efficiency.
- High inventories
- Lack of stringent material flow
- Push instead of pull principle
- Low commitment of capital due to low inventories
- Utilization through leveled production
- Transparency regarding bottlenecks in the production system
Do you think that your processes are overloaded or inefficient? Together, we create transparency regarding the flow of materials and information in your company in order to eliminate waste, i.e. activities that do not add value. Focusing on those process steps that generate customer value improves the cost structure and increases your profitability sustainably.
- Sub-optimal processes, due to uncontested production processes
- High throughput times
- High process times
- Poor delivery schedule adherence
- Transparency by breaking down process duration and time-consuming steps
- Cost reduction through minimization of waste
The only constant is change. Only those who know how to improve and adapt will achieve long term success. Secure your company's success with us by promoting a focused culture of change. We support you in the development of a CIP (Continuous Improvement Process) strategy and our managers and employees so they can actively practice a change culture across all levels.
- Low productivity in the manufacturing plant
- Managers are perceived more as managers than as supporters (Strong hierarchies)
- Continuous increase in process performance/ efficiency
- Increased capability to innovate through employee involvement
- Increased employee satisfaction
