Lean Manufacturing: Best Practices for your company success

Lean Manufacturing

Many international groups have started a Lean Management program or are preparing to start. Management, through the Lean Strategic Director and the Lean Project Manager, has key responsibility for the definition of the strategic lean standard and for its roll-out over many sites and countries.

Companies with lean experience know that the methods of lean production to achieve world-class performance are simple to understand but difficult to organize and even more difficult to sustain. Practical lean implementation expertise (shopfloor, “Gemba”) is among the most important factors to bring on-board before starting a lean initiative.

Our lean manufacturing expertise includes lean methods and the required lean organization. Organization plus tools lead to a sustainable  "culture change".

We are experts in implementting both, the lean management process and the lean tools:

  • Overview lean system architecure
