Consistently focus on added value.
Implementing a perfectly coordinated production system.
There is hardly any other corporate function in which employees can be taught the role of added value and waste as practically and quickly as in production. Optimization is used as the basis for helping Lean philosophy permeate the entire production process, and from there it affects the whole company.
No matter whether it is an individual assembly bay, an area of the factory or network of sites – the ideal value stream and minimal lead time are the focus of optimization. Lean Production combines a variety of principles. The desired effect is primarily the result of a harmonious interplay of these approaches.
The goal is implementing a perfectly coordinated production system.
By concentrating on what matters most – value-chain processes – you bring losses and waste down to a minimum. You can reduce your inventory and the related storage costs, and you will produce higher quality with greater productivity. You introduce flatter hierarchies while giving your employees more responsibility and competence. This increases employee satisfaction and initiates a culture in which you live sustainable improvement.
