Maximize efficiency

Maximize efficiency: Improvements throug the Kaizen Week

Kaizen Workshops are a very powerful tool to solve chronical issues.

The following initial situation might be a candidate for a Kaizen Workshop:

  • Endless discussions between departments
  • A lot of master plans and action plans but NO implementation
  • Data analysis over years but no improvement in a specific metric (e.g. inventories)
  • Customer / supplier issues
  • Recurring process errors, where the daily time slot does not allow to root-cause and fix the issue
  • Initial ideas to optimize a process but no time to design and implement them
  • ...

Kaizen Workshops (or CIP workshops) can be the appropriate "weapon"...

Kaizen Workshops are planned and implemented according to the following generic procedure:

  1. Define workshop objectives and workshop team
  2. Train the workshop team and obtain agreement about targets
  3. Current state analysis
  4. Design the future state; diagnose the potentials and define countermeasures
  5. Implement, Implement, Implement
  6. Define a standard
  7. Communicate results and standards to the management team
  8. Celebrate success and disseminate Best Practices

There is no place where lean is more powerful than at the shopfloor where  the team's talents are brought together for pragmatic and simple solutions.

Furthermore, we can support your organization by

  • Training your organization in how-to realize successful Kaizen-Workshops
  • Realizing Kaizen Worskops for your organization
  • Coaching for specific improvements (e.g. inventory reduction, lead time reduction)
  • Build up a tutorial for your company specific Kaizen workshop
  • Supplying the essential Kaizen workshop tools
  • ...

Your benefit:

  • Easing the life of the manager (qualified team can solve more and more complex problems on their own)
  • Increased capacity / productivity at no / low cost
  • Organizational development
  • Parallel optimization instead of centralized expert-based optimization
  • Reduction of complexity due to a split of responsibility (e.g. per metric or per metric category)
  • Reduced labor cost due to increased level of maturity
  • Visibility and transparency of improvements
  • Growing people and growing pride of ownership >> higher motivation
  • ...

 

Remark: Our Lean Green Belt and Lean Green Belt Executive qualification programmes are covering this central aspect: every participant must show evidence about a successful Kaizen Workshop implementation (Kaizen week).
