Lean Manufacturing & Continuous Improvement

David Carrick | 412.327.9119 | david.carrick@mail.wvu.edu

Lean and continuous improvement services will help you increase profit and reduce operating costs by leveraging the full capacity of all your resources. In today’s ever-changing global economy, companies are faced with fierce competition, and have to continually find ways to remain competitive in their marketplace. The question is how does one improve product and customer value, while reducing cost? Lean manufacturing is a systematic approach to identifying and eliminating waste, or non-value-added activities, through continuous improvement. We will assess your existing operation to understand how you are currently getting things done. We will then work with you to identify a baseline, and where lean initiatives can have an impact, providing a solid list of objectives to start the process. Through implementation, we will also train your team so they understand the importance of these improvements, and the impact they will have. This begins a cultural shift to change the way everyone from the CEO to the front line operators think about day to day activities. This change will lead to continually developing new improvement ideas and bettering existing systems across the entire organization. Whether it’s the production line, plant floor, or front office, we will develop a customized solution aimed at keeping you competitive and getting the most out of your resources.
