Lean Thinking & Improvement

Now more than ever organizations are faced with doing more with fewer resources in order to be more competitive. While many organizations have implemented lean manufacturing techniques in their manufacturing operations, most have not applied these same principles to administrative, service, engineering, accounting, human resources, purchasing and other support functions.

We advocate a holistic approach to lean implementation that starts with the manufacturing area and encompasses all support functions to ensure a completely lean organization. Our approach focuses on:

  • Improving workflow
  • Reducing waste
  • Optimizing resource allocation
  • Establishing a value stream
  • Standardizing operations
  • Providing a framework for decision-making
