LEAN PRODUCTION

The value chain of a modern manufacturing is similar to the value chain of software development and with increased use of software in production systems those value chains move closer and closer together. As we are familiar with both worlds we know how to optimize your processes and reduce waste.

The 5 Lean Principles

Define Value

Definition of customer value and breakdown your costs and services.

Value Stream

Identify and inspect your value stream and eliminate waste in your production system.

Production Flow

Establishing of a continuous production process.

Pull Principle

Only produce what has been ordered by your customer. Pull orders don't push them.

Follow Perfection

Eliminate waste and establish a continuous improvement on the way to perfection.

Our Guiding Principles

Our guiding principles for lean production are aligned with the VDI 2870 norm (LPS) and consider all aspects of a modern production system.

Avoidance of waste

Eliminate all non-value-adding tasks and processes within your production process and define necessary activities that ad customer value.

Use available resources

With more effective processes the use of resources can be optimised, additionally we combine these aspects with Green Management to reach a sustainable production process.

Standardize

With the help of standardising we can help you optimise similar and repeating processes and tasks. This eliminates non-value-adding tasks and increases stability.

Continous Improvement

Reach perfection and never give up - with this in mind we establish a framework with you to continuously improve your production by yourself.

Zero-Defect-Principle

Remove defects and impediments where they arise. Additionally find ways to reduce mistakes within the process chain.

Pull Principle

Don't push the order - the production pulls it through when it has been ordered by a customer. This reduces warehousing costs and eliminates time for process control. Do it Just-In-Time.

Follow the flow

With reduction of interim storage and increased information flow we reduce your lead time by realising a fast, continuous and low-turbulence material flow.

Leadership

We see employees of a company as crucial resources for innovative concepts and continuous process improvements. To establish and live this mindset is crucial for successful implementation.

Your benefits

Detection and elimination of waste in time and process is key focus of our Lean Production Consulting. Together we find the parts in your production process that your customer is not willing to pay for and optimize your production process towards a sustainable future.

After consolidation of all processes, parameters and tasks along the value chain of your production we are able to identify and concentrate on the removing of those waste items like:
