Significant cost reduction and performance improvement is only possible, when Lean measures are implemented throughout the entire organization and value-added chain. There is no reason why an area should be excluded!
Production planning and control
Purchasing and supplier management
IT system / ERP- APS-MES
Increasing production in individual areas (e.g. by purchasing a machine with a super-fast tool changer) does not necessarily lead to an increase in overall efficiency (e.g. reduction of lead time). Rather, an experienced and holistic approach is required to find out where the weak points in the value-added system are. Identifying these is an essential part of the lean management method.
We begin where the finished product leaves the company, i.e. at the end of the value-added chain, and gradually optimize all upstream processes ("backwards") using our KPC method.
One of the strengths of KPC's Lean consultants is their ability to quickly analyse problem areas and plan the rapid implementation of improvement measures
