Drastically reducing product and service lead times.
A clear vision and structured approach to define and implement the most efficient Lean flow strategy for the company, tied in with the specific features of its demand and production.
A Lean strategy involves changing the fundamental points of reference of the production organisation:
- Optimisation of lead and waiting times as a priority performance in the workplace criterion in the use and efficiency of machines and people.
- Introduction of new flow performance measures and new performance assessment accounting approaches for the company.
- Grouping together of products with even flows into elementary strategic production units (value streams) to optimise management, programming and economic performance.
- Impact of the optimisation strategy of value stream flows in the development policies of new products, purchasing of new equipment and subcontracting.
Continuous flow: Reduction of waiting time and wip.
The Lean company controls its production flow to remain competitive and satisfy customers. This involves moving from the traditional batch-driven production method to continuous production mode, driven by customer demand, in which:
- There is practically no stock.
- Equipment changeovers last less than 10 minutes.
Productivity Europe intervenes to train and advise companies in:
- Setting up production units
- Kanban pull systems
- Mixed model manufacturing
- Production scheduling.
