Cost \ Scheduling
In this (3) hour workshop, you will learn how to identify and quantify significant forms of waste, and how to report this waste in a manner which will facilitate the development of a comprehensive lean implementation plan. The following topics are covered:
  • Why a lean assessment is an essential part of your lean initiative
  • Beginning the lean assessment
  • Utilizing internal resources
  • Organizing the data
  • Waste vs. lean potential
  • Quantifying the potential
  • Cost, Quality, and Delivery drivers
  • Developing and reporting the lean assessment
  • Where to go from here...

The LEAN ASSESSMENT is the most important aspect of a lean implementation. Without a thorough understanding of what lean can do IN YOUR ORGANIZATION, it is impossible to develop a successful lean plan.

Why perform an internal lean assessment? No one understands your business the way you do. An external perspective necessarily misses major opportunities for fundamental improvement, and comes at a very high cost. Pre-packaged assessment materials use broad generalizations, and usually require external assistance to complete (at additional cost). NWLEAN workshops provide the insight and knowledge you need to utilize the expertise YOU ALREADY POSSESS, at a far lesser cost than other methods.
