Lean implementation in special mechanical engineering

What do you do when you see a need for optimization in many areas of an organization?

A good option is a comprehensive Lean Assessment by alphaX to make deficits transparent and to launch targeted improvement initiatives: We look at all areas, from leadership culture (Lean Leadership & Culture) to Lean Processes (Lean Shopfloor and Lean Administration) and customer orientation to Lean Organization. To this end, we conduct interviews at all hierarchical levels, work out weak points with the process experts, and determine and interpret relevant key figures.

At a special machine manufacturer, the assessment revealed important areas for action in the project management standards, in the lack of transparency regarding deadlines and other performance KPIs, and in a lack of error and improvement culture. In an optimization project lasting several months, we were able to work together with the employees of the organization to not only solve the biggest operational problems, but also to achieve a positive change in the mood and culture of cooperation.
