Introducing Lean practices across the MRO value stream. From planning and engineering to maintenance on the line and in the hangar.

GENEO’s team of Lean experts has worked in the MRO field from different industries across 3 continents.
GENEO has extensive experience in maintenance and repair throughout the value stream of returning assets to operations.  Our activities have covered the re-engineering of planning for heavy and light maintenance, improving the turnaround time for assets, reducing inventory and material holdings, and introducing short interval control for 1st line maintenance.
MROs wanting to secure better margins without passing the cost onto the operator can benefit from GENEO’s MRO Lean programme.
