Lean Manufacturing Consultants UK
Lean Manufacturing & Process Improvement Consultants
We use our experience to guide manufacturers in getting orders out faster, to improve their Processes and Productivity and develop staff to be more responsible and accountable.
Lean Manufacturing & Process Improvement Consultants, what does that mean exactly?
Process a NOUN: a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end
- arranging delivery to customers
- planning which orders should be completed first
- getting materials out of stores
- ensuring your products meet the statutory requirements
- dealing with suppliers
- handling sales enquiries
- managing people
- paying invoices...etc..
These processes are the reasons that customers buy from you.
In most cases they may not have the skills, contacts, tools, machinery or experience to do the work for themselves.
At other times they believe you can do them quicker, faster, cheaper than they could.
If these are the reason your customers buy from you, why wouldn't you want them to be the best they could be?
Providing Productivity Improvement Workshops to Leeds University and Goldman Sachs
Our consulting is 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 has to go hand in hand with your daily operations.
We know that going forward you'll need to learn how to deliver everyday operations and improvement work.
We work with your staff to understand the business and the frustrations they experience every day, frustrations that waste time and effort.
Taking these we look for the root causes of the problems and set about, with your teams to remove the causes and put in place solutions.
If is sounds straight forward, that's because it can be.
Maybe you want a single stand alone project, perhaps you have a thought that you need guidance on a series of projects.
Our Lean Manufacturing Consulting services can be developed to suit your situation, now and as it develops.
I understood Lean more in the first 5 minutes of training than I've learnt from 4 previous courses!!

How Does Lean Manufacturing Consulting Help You?
Lean Manufacturing and Process Improvement Consulting gives you the chance to work alongside coaches who have been doing this for several years. It helps you to see how the tools, techniques and behaviours can be implemented in a real-life situation, not a classroom.
We show you how to use daily frustrations as a source of improvement projects.
From this you can find out how much time and effort they waste and implement solutions to sort them out.
Lean Manufacturing - 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.
