Lean concepts can reduce the downtime on equipment, streamline sales and customer service as well as reduces inventory levels. These concepts also allow free flow of cash. The manufacturing and processing plant is the only piece of equipment on the floor that generates revenue. When it stops, revenue stream collapses. Hence, it makes sense to consider production techniques that focus on adding value and removing costs. In a lean production environment, the workflow focuses more on generating revenue. Lean manufacturing tools are widely used in the UK, European and the US-based multinational organizations. Improvement tools offer training and implementation services in Lean Manufacturing concepts for the industry.
Many include a 'Rapid improvement Event' - learning by doing, and apply the concepts to the all areas, including administration. We can also provide certified lean training to diploma level under the Competitive Manufacturing Program approved in both countries.
