This section provides guidance and tools to help you reduce inefficiencies in your operation using the principles of lean manufacturing.
What is lean manufacturing?
Lean is not a new concept – it has been developed over 150 years and is a mainstay of the world’s leading manufacturers. In essence, lean is a route to eliminating waste – anything that does not advance the process or add value – through a culture of continuous improvement. This suggests that there is always another second to be saved in the process or a step that doesn’t need to be taken – even the slickest operations in the world continue to strive for zero waste.
In this section, you’ll find resources to help you implement these tools in your operation – from real examples from businesses like yours, expertise from lean specialists and factsheets which will simply explain each concept and give a step-by-step guide for you to follow.
Don’t forget, our team of Manufacturing Advisors are fully-funded to work with you to identify which tools will offer the best productivity impacts in your operation.
