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
