We propose, in a matter of days, LEAN solutions adapted to a particular case, based on "LEAN Best Practices" result of our cases solved over many years experience in three key Business Processes:
1. Manufacturing, from the first production operation to the last one
2. Supply Chain, from the arrival of an order until all the order items are delivered and charged
3. Industrialization of New Products, since Marketing thinks a new Product / Service until it is produced to the cycle required by Sales
The large number of times we had to design from scratch in the past, makes us not surrender to the problem Nº. 45 and we have maximum confidence that, working deeply on root causes, the right solution will show up
Very few people dominate micro-operation as our consultants. This is a consequence of the clear strategy marked from the beginning by the partners of Dit Consulting to go to the GEMBA (the workplace where things happen), and to be there the necessary and sufficient time to see/know/document/classify the production/assembly operations at the level that is needed to detect waste and discover the root causes to eliminate them in the design phase
The Lean Model is based on the Toyota system and proposes the following steps to reach excellence:
Design of solutions for the maximum simplification of productive flows and elimination of operations without added value.
Sized layouts and previous engineering designs, enough to carry out the implementation of the solutions.
Indirect re-engineering for process management.
Horizontality in vertical flow charts and productivity improvement.
Process simulation, SMED, 5S, Kanban, Poka-Yokes, Visual control, cell manufacturing/production design.
STRATEGIC SOURCING AND PROCUREMENT
Redesign and implementation of the complete supply chain in order to improve terms and costs. Manufacturing by order and the lot unit goal is a single unit. Covered processes: commercial management, product design, procurement, manufacturing and shipment. Lead Time reduction greater than 40%, productivity improvement higher than 15%.
DESIGN TO COST
The cost of the product starts in the design phase, a good acceptance of the aesthetics and functionality by the market are as important as the costs of the materials used to achieve the profitability of the product. What we offer through this service is to reduce the costs of the product by analyzing the value. It is key to understand the functions for which the product in question has been designed and those for which the client is willing to pay for => redesign actions with savings without putting quality at risk.
The information system has to provide the appropriate coverage to the processes performance acting as enabler. DIT Consulting Group is able to establish the IT requirements for the needed functionality, to participate in the selection of the most appropriated tools for each case and to carry out their implementation. We consider from ERPs to more specific solutions depending on the area and functionality to cover.
