Why Consider Implementing a Lean System For Your Company?

Cleansing your business to reduce or eliminate any unnecessary operations that do not add value to your company or product, is a keynote when implementing a Lean System. This system helps ensure customers receive the best value for each dollar they spend with your company.

One of the first considerations when implementing a Lean System is to start with the customer and the business. When you implement Lean you put in place the controls and systems to provide the customer exactly what they want, where they want it, when they want it, in the right quantity, without any waste or delays.

The benefits of using a Lean System’s methodologies include:

  • Reduction in production costs.
  • Inventory reduction.
  • Reduction on delivery time (lead time).
  • Improved quality.
  • Decrease in labor.
  • Greater  equipment efficiency.
  • Waste reduction.
  • Reduction of overproduction.
  • Decrease on delays.
  • More efficient transport.

Integrating your current Quality Management System (QMS) with a Lean System, avoids the duplication of efforts within your company and can also reduce your organization’s reliance on procedure documentation, thus, saving time and money. The high-level benefits include job satisfaction, control of rejections, elimination of wastes and customer satisfaction.

Lean fits perfectly within any ISO 9001 QMS and can only help you to further improve and grow your business using proven tools and techniques. If you are interested in learning more in implementing this system, contact us today at (330) 915-2355.
