Lean Conversion Overview

4-hours & 8-hours Workshops

 Lean Conversion involves all activities necessary to make lead-time reduction possible. Affected functions include production control, manufacturing or services, engineering, sales and marketing, purchasing, maintenance, administrative workflow, and quality. Companies adopting a Lean approach become faster and more responsive to customer requirements while using fewer resources.  To successfully implement Lean, there must be a company-wide understanding of the basics of Lean - what it means, why it is necessary, and how it works.
