Lean Manufacturing Consulting

What is lean manufacturing?

Lean Manufacturing strives to maximize customer value while minimizing waste. Lean Manufacturing streamlines processes by removing non-value added steps and waste from the processes.

Lean tries to eliminate three sources of loss from the operating system:
  • Eliminating waste; helps to reduce cost
  • Eliminating variability; improves quality
  • Eliminating inflexibility; optimizes delivery
