Take a step back and view your operations through fresh eyes. Could you reduce lead times for your customers? Is there a more efficient way to manage your stock?

The Pathway to Lean Manufacturing has been developed with your business needs in mind to help you sharpen your manufacturing practices. You will be taken through a re-evaluation of the way your business operates which will allow you to resolve immediate problems and create a foundation for addressing future issues effectively and efficiently.

We have three specific aims:

  • To reduce your lead times

  • Operational performance visibility is limited to financial reports
  • Costs are too high and lead times too long
  • Processes and systems can no longer cope
  • We have product, we just don’t have the right product

We will go through your processes and find the best ways to save you money and increase your bottom line. You will be provide you with an essential toolkit, written in plain English, designed for maximum interactivity and practically, to interface with humans.

Colin assessed and analysed the way we were producing our best selling product – Zonecheck and identified some key areas for improvement. He supported us through each phase of the changes which allowed us to dramatically streamline the assembly, testing and packaging process. Colin was always clear with instruction, easy to work with and made some really helpful suggestions which made our processes much more efficient.

The most common issues businesses face are inadequate communications and weak visibility of how the business is operating on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. Through our experiences with working with manufacturers, we have learned how creating a joined-up, transparent business is the key to addressing issues of delivery, quality and cost. We can help you to make sustainable changes which benefit the bottom line.
