We know that any improvement work has to go hand in hand with your daily operations, “getting orders out”

We know that you right now, you might not know how to make the time available to implement these lean manufacturing tools and techniques.

Going forward you’ll need to learn how to deliver everyday operations and improvement work, at the same time. 

Lean Manufacturing Consultants - What Do We Do?

Firstly we listen to and we observe what you do.

We are looking to find the frustrations you and your manufacturing teams experience every day, these are the frustrations that waste time and effort.  The frustrations that you share with colleagues, family, friends, the frustrations that are not being resolved.

It might be the frustration of waiting for and chasing delivery of parts, getting specs or information corrected, checking the quality of items.

It could be the frustration of not having enough qualified staff or taking the call from sales or the customer chasing their orders.

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 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 !
