Improve Lead Times, Productivity, Inventory & Space with Total Flow Management (TFM)
Total Flow Management (TFM) focuses on streamlining material and information flows. Diagnosis is performed through management led Value Stream Mapping.
Application of Just-in-Time, kanban, pull systems, and other lean production and lean logistics methods will create a more flexible supply chain, with lower inventory levels and increased productivity.
Improve Equipment Effectiveness, Increased Safety and Quality with Total Productive Management (TPM)
Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is a well proven methodology for improving asset performance. The Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) of your assets is improved by systematically reducing losses in quality, availability and speed. TPM does this by engaging people at all levels in problem solving, equipment planning and daily monitoring of performance.
Improved Quality with Total Quality Management (TQM)
TQM applies proven quality tools to systematically expose problems, identify root causes, take corrective action and implement mistake-proofing (pokayoke). Statistical methods and Six Sigma techniques are used to for more complex problems. TQM will reduce quality costs and improve customer satisfaction.
Lean Office, Lean Finance, Lean Engineering and Lean Administration (TSM)
The kaizen methodology applied to knowledge work, information flow, and administrative processes improves service, quality and productivity while engaging people’s creativity. Kaizen principles are increasingly being adopted in offices of production facilities as well as service organisations such as banks, insurance companies and local governments. A lean office transformation begins by visualizing the processes and their targets, organizing teams around daily and project-based kaizen activity, and building simple performance management systems.
Lean Innovation, Lean Startup & Lean Product Development (IDM)
The lean approach improves the effectiveness of the process of innovation, startups, new product development, new product launches, new facility design and construction. Lean methods bring results to innovation, startup, ramp up, running and ramp up of businesses in areas of:
