Tried and Tested Lean Management Methods
Decades of experience in generating growth through Lean Methods, Principles, Systems and Tools
Transforming Organisations Into Lean Operators
Successful organisations are those which embrace transformational change, creating high-performing lean teams.
For lean principles to interlace with an organisation’s DNA there must be cultural change from top to bottom, from the CEO to the front line. With GENEO’s guidance, the leadership team can forge new behaviours, new systems, and new principles to drive continuous improvement.
GENEO’s Lean experts ensure the change management process is never left to chance in order to ensure successful adoption of the Lean operating system. Afterall, Lean is about people and people are the culture. So, before we reach for any tool in the Lean toolbox, we will ensure we have created an environment for continued success.
Forging Stability and Change During Economic Uncertainty – the 100 Day Plan
Financial instability, such as the 2008 recession, present treacherous waters for companies both new and old. We at GENEO have helped companies to navigate these waters and overcome their most significant operational challenges.
Our expert lean consultants help transform operations from a loss to profit by working alongside the operating teams at all levels to contain the losses and build countermeasures.
Our rapid diagnostic approach helps to stem losses – built upon 90-to-100 day recovery plans – building Interim States for the medium term, and Strategic Blueprints for the long term.
Streamlined Supply Chain Management
GENEO’s team of supply chain experts can cater for all your requirements. GENEO has proven success in helping organisations strengthen the performance of their supply chain, from the complexities of external logistics for the value chain to the implementation of internal logistics within facilities.
Our experienced lean method includes: Procurement Strategies, Inventory Control, Product Lifecycle Management, Value Chain Management Through Tiered Systems, Demand Management, Production Control, Materials Management, Supplier Quality Assurance, Capacity Planning
Improved New Product Introduction Launches
Over-the-wall product development and new product introductions can be the undoing of an organisation (regardless of their general efficiency).
Through the introduction of simple-to-follow steps your organisation’s next product development or new product introduction can be seamless, from design through to launch.
Our product-to-market methods include: NPI Blueprint Creation, Defined Customer Requirements, Defined Specifications and Technical Requirements, Product Development, FMEA (design and process), Pilot of Product, Standardised Work Instructions, Launch Centre Drafting and Execution
Lean Logistics for Lean Operational Excellence
Logistics is often an afterthought of operations. Instead, operational excellence is a successful result of Value Stream-optimised integration of a company’s logistics network.
GENEO’s approach will help to avoid the expensive mistake of not considering the internal and external material replenishment requirements of your operating system.
Our lean logistics approach includes: Plans Per Part, Heijunka Planning, Supermarket Introduction, Internal and External Logistics Planning, Production Control, and Buffer Management.
