Lean Manufacturing Consultants - What Do We Do?

Firstly we listen to and observe what you do.

We are looking to find the frustrations you and your manufacturing teams experience every day, these are the things that waste time and effort. 

It might be the frustration of waiting for or chasing delivery of parts; it could be the frustration of  getting specifications checked or information corrected, or waiting whilst someone checks the quality of parts made.

It could be the frustration of not having enough qualified staff to do the work or waiting whilst the warehouse pick the parts.

It could be the frustration of taking that call from the sales team, chasing yet another customer order.

It could be any of the frustrations that you share with colleagues, family, friends, the frustrations that are not being resolved.

Taking these we use the most suitable lean manufacturing tools and techniques to find the root causes of these frustrations.

Then, with you and your teams, using the lean tools and a Productivity Improvement Framework we set about to put in place solutions.

Solutions that are embedded and sustained in the long term.

Our lean manufacturing consultants  will always tailor the service and advice to suit your situation, to improve your specific business needs.  

We go to the place of work and observe it

In summary our lean manufacturing consulting approach involves;

  1. Going to the place of work and observe, listen; we call this Gemba.
  2. Identifying the 8 Wastes of Lean through finding the Frustrations. This is done via Value Stream Mapping.
  3. Drawing up a Productivity Improvement Framework (Plan, Do Check, Act) with timescales
  4. Introducing Improvement projects 
  5. Provide training and coaching for staff to get them through the improvements
  6. Monitor your results and achieve sustained performance.

Levantar really do know what they are doing, they spent around a year working with a company I work for and the improvement made were beyond words. Daily working life became much more bearable and I was able to improve myself in my job role due to this. They are very honest and will help wherever they can using the knowledge they have learnt through the years. I highly recommend Mark and Neil and would happily work with them again.

Levantar were with us for 7 months during which time they introduced many changes to existing processes as well as new ones to move on with. During this time they learned our way of working before making any additions/alterations or changes, they listened to everyone who had comments, observations or ideas and took all of these on board.They left us a far more efficient group than when they arrived with new ideas an projects to carry forward to continue the improvements.Overall Mark & Neil are approachable, attentive & have much knowledge & experience to draw from in order to improve a business in so many ways.Highly recommended !
