Lean in the Engineering domain is not only about the nowadays classic methods of waste removal and information flow optimization. It also includes fundamentally new approaches for decision making and knowledge management.

Together with our long term partner Michaël N. Kennedy, whose analysis of Toyota methods are internationally famous, we developed a complete approach to ensure quick and efficient Lean adoption for companies of all sizes. It strongly relies on a full set of training sessions and workshops.

Engage and lead transformation
  • 
Raise top management awareness and identify stakes
  • 
Train Lean champions and mentor pilot implementations
  • 
Highlight quick wins, develop the target organization and means, prepare and realize Lean deployment

Streamline the development process
  • 
Diagnose processes performance (Value Stream Mapping) and identify the root-causes of issues
  • 
Study short-term and middle-term wins, define action plans and follow-up means
  • 
Launch actions and follow their results, investigate deeper or generalize

Set up robust project steering
  • 
Facilitate collaboration, simplify reporting and support decision-making by implementing visual management methods (Obeya)
  • 
Identify the “knowledge gaps” in projects, deploy systematic problem solving methods (Kbrief)
  • 
Integrate the “voice of customer” into the development process, give rythm to projects through “integrating events”

Deploy Knowledge Management
  • 
Review business organization (discipline networks, technical competence recognition, training and apprenticeship
  • 
Organize capture and promotion of knowledge through “limit curves”, “trade-off curves”, checksheets…
  • 
Develop the 'set-based‘ approach (instruction of alternative solutions)
