Lean Manufacturing, which is also known as the Toyota Production System, is a complex manufacturing system that took Toyota about 15 years to develop. Although many view Lean Manufacturing as a system to drive out waste, the ultimate purpose of implementing Lean Manufacturing is to dramatically improve bottom line profitability. The lower cost structure that comes from driving out waste allows companies to be more competitive and improve their revenues, while the focus on customer needs serves to improve customer satisfaction and loyalty, producing secondary revenue and profit improvement impacts.
Many companies who try to implement Lean Manufacturing get lost in the techniques and intricacies of implementing Lean sub-systems to the point that they lose their Lean compass—Profit Improvement. SatiStar’s Lean Implementation Strategies workshop provides a proven method for Lean implementations that will keep your organization focused on doing those things that will have a significant impact upon profit improvement.
Our workshops also deal with the social issues and obstacles that are normally encountered when implementing Lean Manufacturing systems such that you will be able to anticipate and overcome these potential obstacles and maintain a high velocity of Lean implementation, as well as dramatic and rapid improvements in your bottom line.
