What Do We Do?
We spend time with your staff listening for and observing the Frustrations they have.
We work out how much time and effort is lost to these frustrations.
We look and listen out for the "true" Bottlenecks holding you performance back.
We look for the root causes of the the frustrations.
Then we'll report back on how you can overcome these issues and get more from what you have.
WORK SMARTER NOT HARDER IS THE AIM!
Our services are based on our considerable operations management experience we have. All of our consultants have run Factories and Manufacturing Plants as senior managers through to Operations Director level.
We know that any improvement work recommended has to go hand in hand with your daily operations. You have to improve and deliver at the same time.
Maybe you have a single site project in mind, or perhaps you have a thought that you need guidance on a series of projects, projects covering Manufacturing and the support areas - Finance, Product Development.
Whatever you need we can flex our review to suit the areas required.
I understood Lean more in the first 5 minutes of training than I've learnt from 4 previous courses!!

Lean Manufacturing Productivity - How Many Frustrations Do You Have?
It's really simple to find out.
Ask your staff what stops them doing their job, stops them getting on with it?
Ask them what frustrates them about doing the job and listen to their replies.
Listen to their replies, don't dismiss.
While you're at it, why not estimate how many times each of them happen each week and how much time you lose sorting them out.
A Manufacturing Productivity Example
A stores person takes a list of components and walks around the stores collecting component parts for an assembly. (The list came from the company) The parts are in part number order, not the order they are stored in or are used in.
The employee tick them off as they go, placing them in bags with the component id on, the bags go in a big box.
They are delivered to the engineer who must first, sort all the bags into the right order, checking that they have all the right parts and numbers of parts.
How much wasted time is in there? How much work is duplicated?
Why can't the stores person deliver the parts in the right order to the engineer and help them focus on just building? Thereby increasing their productivity?
There are simple solutions to this.
