Lean Manufacturing

successo professionaleAt SCA we firmly believe that Lean Manufacturing is to have the vision and the ability to review your production procedures and techniques for eliminating the waste from your manufacturing. The methodology that SCA implement turns traditional manufacturing thinking completely on its head.

A popular misconception is that procedure is suited only for manufacturing purposes, completely not true. Lean applies in every business and every process. It is not a tactic or a cost reduction program, but a way of thinking and acting for an entire organization and is extensively used in Government, health care and ICT.

Companies have had no choice because of the negative economic conditions that the whole world is experiencing than to seek alternatives. Our process is very simple but very effective when understood and implemented properly.

The main benefits of Lean Manufacturing is that it can improve production efficiency and therefore competitiveness.

It does this by:

  • Preventing over-production.
  • Minimising waiting times and transport costs.
  • Saving resources by streamlining your production systems.
  • Reducing the capital you have tied up in stock.
  • Dispensing with the need for inventory operations.
  • Decreasing product defects.
  • Introducing proven technology to reduce consumption and increase efficiency. Technology opens up a complete new side of lean manufacturing as it involves IT.

A leaner organization must have the ethos of customer care at the centre of their thinking. The ultimate goal is to provide perfect value to the customer through a perfect value creation process that has zero waste. It is amazing what results can be achieved at little or no cost by just tweeking a few things here and few things there.

To accomplish this, lean thinking changes the focus of management from optimizing separate technologies, assets, and vertical departments to optimizing the flow of products and services through entire value streams that flow horizontally across technologies, assets, and departments to customers.

Eliminating waste along entire value streams, instead of at isolated points, creates processes that need less human effort, less space, less capital, and less time to make products and services at far less costs and with much fewer defects, compared with traditional business systems. Companies are able to respond to changing customer desires with high variety, high quality, low cost, and with very fast throughput times. Also, information provided to management becomes much simpler and more accurate.

We believe at Specialist Cost Auditors (SCA) that we definitely have the expertise to have a huge impact on the profits of your company.
