Lean services Solutions: we deal with the implementation of Lean methods, training in the field of lean manufacturing and lean logistics.
Lean Solutions services and at the same time a competitive advantage is that we spend most of our time in the shop floor with your employees, where we deal with eliminating process losses, educating employees in their jobs and strengthening teamwork.
With many years of experience of all employees (from various industries), we offer our customers a really large set of practical solutions. At the company, we believe that theoretical knowledge is essential, but practical experience is what can help implement real LEAN SOLUTIONS.
What does the word LEAN even mean?
Lean is a condition in which we try to remove from our processes everything that is not absolutely necessary for products or services. This is called loss reduction. Loss is what we have done but it does not bring added value to the buyer and he is not willing to pay for it. Of course, there are also necessary losses (testing, planning, reporting, etc.), but these are not subject to Lean. It is a constant process and balancing between types of losses. It is often the case that reducing one type of loss increases another. Lean Solutions and methods (services) to help our customers gain knowledge
- Lean manufacturing – The goal of lean manufacturing is to continuously improve all processes. Its advantage is the focus on results, on dynamic time and cost efficient processes. On reducing errors, on highly efficient machines and motivated employees.
- Lean logistics – One of the main benefits of lean logistics is inventory management. Excess inventory leads to losses, and undersupply upsets customers in delays.
- Lean organisation – A lean organisation is based on efficiently identifying losses and solving rapid order upsets and capacity problems.
- Lean training – Organised training, workshops and tours give employees from different companies an insight into the result of a successful long-term implementation.
- 6s (5S) – A systematic approach to organising, standardising and removing distractions in the work environment.
- SFM – (Shopfloor management) makes it easier to manage production processes at operational level.
- TPM is a method – a project – a mindset that intervenes very intensively in the habits and working methods of both maintenance and production.
- KAIZEN – is also a culture and framework for managing ongoing change that can help companies improve their operational processes
- SMED – or the quick change method – helps us reduce the time it takes to change a tool or product in a work process.
- VSM –
is used to identify potentials and bottlenecks in the process.
- JIDOKA – a method that identifies a bad product and prevents its further production …
Lean manufacturing is a systematic framework for eliminating waste from a production system or value stream without sacrificing productivity. A value stream comprises all activities and information flows that exist from the material supplier to the customer. Lean methodology teaches about connecting employees at all levels of the organisation. Identifying and eliminating losses to ensure that we continuously add value to the goods we deliver to our customers. Lean mindset and culture to add value and eliminate value-diminishing activities.
Simply put, the aim of lean manufacturing is to create more value for customers while reducing waste.
8 losses in a lean organization
In Lean production, value is marked as any activity that the customer is willing to pay for. On the other hand, loss is defined as anything that does not add value to the product or incurs a cost without benefit. Lean experts agree on 8 losses stemming from Just in Time’s philosophy of reducing costs and increasing value.
- Overproduction: producing more, sooner and faster than the need from the next process or customer
- Waiting: operators waiting for a machine cycle, machine breakdown, or for material
- Transport: moving pieces more than the minimum required
- Over-processing: unnecessary or incorrect processing
- Inventories: stock levels greater than the minimum required in raw materials, semi-finished or finished goods
- Movement: movements of people or machinery more than the minimum required
- Errors: the time and effort that goes into repairing the screening
- Untapped human potential
The biggest impacts on the company
- Reducing production costs through the successive introduction of lean culture
- Transparency and stability of company costs
- Proper recording and detection of all congestion that affects added value
- Rapid action and tracking the effects of implemented activities
- Lean losses
- Employee training and intensive information on lean losses
- Connecting employees into active teams that independently reduce lean losses
