Lean Manufacturing

Lean manufacturing tools and best practices identify and eliminate waste while delivering dramatic results through continuous improvement.

The typical results of Lean are often dramatic:

  • Lead times cut 50-75%
  • Productivity raised 50-100%
  • First pass yields increased to over 95%
  • Cut costs or increase capacity without adding resources
  • Positive cash flows
  • Reduce inventories 50% or less — more than doubling your turns

Assessments and Programs

The Enterprise Excellence GAP Analysis is a highly structured, facilitated process designed to identify and prioritize continuous improvement projects, across the enterprise, based on a comparison of your current conditions to best in class across six pillars of Enterprise Excellence including.

  1. Policy Deployment and Execution
  2. Safety and Environmental Health
  3. Manufacturing Operations
  4. Business Operations
  5. Extended Value Stream Management
  6. Plant Results 

WMEP will lead your leadership team in a facilitated discussion of specific questions in each of the identified pillars designed to help you discover and define the gaps in your performance relative to best in class performance. The process will help you document where you are today and develop a plan to close performance gaps.
