Lean Thinking is one of the best approaches for improving effectiveness of direct and indirect processes. The final result of implementation depends on availability of internal resources, speed of improvement actions and engagement of management and employees. Most companies which implemented this approach achieved great results in following areas:

  • Inventory levels reduction ? purchased parts, WIP and finished goods
  • Elimination of stoppages due to parts shortages
  • Improvement of relations with suppliers and customers
  • Improvement of delivery performance
  • Reduction of needed production and storage space
  • Lead time reduction
  • Productivity improvement
  • Improvement of morale
  • Transparent and organized workplaces

Implementation of lean is not a single project but long-term process. It is not just about changing production or planning methods. It is a change in company culture and a way of doing daily business. It requires new ways of doing things, management and thinking about business.
