What is Lean
The core idea is to maximize customer value while minimizing waste. Simply, lean means creating more value for customers with fewer resources.
A lean organization understands customer value and focuses its key processes to continuously increase it. The ultimate goal is to provide perfect value to the customer through a perfect value creation process that has zero waste.
To accomplish this, lean thinking changes the focus of management from optimizing separate technologies, assets, and vertical departments to optimizing the flow of products and services through entire value streams that flow horizontally across technologies, assets, and departments to customers.
Eliminating waste along entire value streams, instead of at isolated points, creates processes that need less human effort, less space, less capital, and less time to make products and services at far less costs and with much fewer defects, compared with traditional business systems. Companies are able to respond to changing customer desires with high variety, high quality, low cost, and with very fast throughput times. Also, information management becomes much simpler and more accurate.
The world is a merry-go-round and you can’t get off. Customers are becoming more demanding, markets are becoming more customised, and product life-cycles that are getting shorter are just a few of the reasons why Lean could be important to you. As the demands on our processes increase they evolve and adapt accordingly which often results in processes that end up inefficient and wasteful. Lean is about challenging the way things are done and opening our eyes to that waste and inefficiency. The environment in which an organization operates will continue to change. Lean can help organizations meet the challenge.
Lean program begins with Lean Training that introduces the workforce to the concepts of Define, Analyse, Measure, Improve, Control. Using a technique developed and perfected by the most efficient companies, the Lean systems revolutionizes the way an organization views itself and will enable people at all levels to make the connection between quality, efficiency and being organized through waste reduction.
