The Lean Management program is designed for companies to improve the service provided to clients for their satisfaction, and to optimize the use of resources, thereby increasing productivity and profitability.
- It is based on the Lean Manufacturing methodology, which aims to eliminate waste in companies through the use of a collection of tools that improves the operations system (production, supplies, etc.).
- By means of a continual improvement approach, all the tasks or steps that do not provide value are eliminated and maximum use is made of all resources, experience and know-how of the organization. The goal is to build more flexible companies with a greater capacity to respond to the unexpected.
From this point onwards, the specific benefits that are obtained are:
- Increase the quality of the products and services of the company
- Reduce the delivery time of the products and services
- Reduce costs
- Reduce the response time to demand
- Improve the processes
- Eliminate waste
- Rationalize the use of company resources.
The general benefits of the program are two-fold:
- Improve the service to the client and their satisfaction
- Increase the productivity and profitability of the company
- We correct the aspects of quantity, quality, cost and time of the operations of the company, especially with regards to processes, overproduction of products and services, production defects, waiting times, transport and inventories
- We have a team with a great deal of experience in the execution of lean projects, whether in the design and planning phase or in the subsequent visit to the organization to verify that the defined actions have been implemented correctly. We have carried out projects of this type not only in the industrial sector, but also in the services and public administration sector.
The general objective is to adapt the management, processes and resources of the company so that it may offer the maximum value to its clients in terms of quality, quantity, cost and speed of the products and services that it supplies, with the minimum consumption of resources.
- Elimination of waste (unnecessary activities or those that do not provide value to the client)
- The Six Sigma quality of operations, products and services
- Continuous flow of information and material
- Just in Time operations (JIT)
- Training of work teams for decision making
- Implementation of visual management
- Efficiency of machinery and installations
- Order and cleanliness of work stations
- Optimization of stock and its management
The Lean Program commences with an analysis of the current situation of the company to identify opportunities to improve profitability, productivity and customer service, and the subsequent establishment, planning and execution of improvement initiatives affecting different areas of the study.
