What is Lean Manufacturing?
It is a methodology that focuses on eliminating waste and maximizing productivity in a business. Even though it says manufacturing, it can be applied to many different kinds of businesses, including those in the green industry.
Lean is an awesome system that works for operational excellence and continuous improvement. An important aspect of this is the built-in leader and team development so everyone is on the same page to move your business forward.
Here are four reasons to partake in Lean:
- Lean streamlines the company’s processes! Implementing Lean allows a business to streamline their processes throughout the entire organization from the front office to distribution. Efficiencies are witnessed and the business is able to work at its full potential. This results in reduced production costs and increased speed to market.
- Lean removes waste! Lean addresses the Eight Areas of Waste: transportation, extra processing, defects, waiting, overprotection, inventory, extra motion, and non-utilized talent. By eliminating waste, a company has the opportunity to abolish time spent on unnecessary tasks.
- Lean can build team commitment! In order to build a Lean operation, a company must recognize that there is a need for change. This requires focus from all team members. In many instances, utilizing Lean techniques have allowed for a company-wide assessment of their manufacturing processes, which builds teamwork and cooperation.
- The job is never done! A key element of Lean is “continuous improvement.” This means that there are continuous opportunities to become more Lean.
