Imagine how your business model and competitiveness would change, if your critical processes that today take 10 or 20 days from start to finish could be done in 1 to 2 days.

Lean Management helps Operational Excellence organizations to create flow, for both materials and information, and maximize efficiency through the reduction or elimination of non-value adding activities. Read more ...

Process Excellence - 8D Problem Solving Process

Process Excellence - 8D Problem Solving ProcessMaintaining effective and efficient manufacturing, service or administrative processes requires that everyone in the organization is trained in basic problem solving, and knows how to analyze and solve problems quickly as they occur.

The 8D (Eight Disciplines) Problem Solving Process is one of the most widely used team-oriented and structured problem-solving methodologies.

The 8D Problem Solving Process focuses on the origin of the problem by determining root causes and by establishing effective corrective and preventive actions.

The 8D Problem Solving Process has become a standard in many industries as problem-solving, internal Corrective Action Request (CAR) Process, and Supplier Corrective Action Request (SCAR) Process. Read more ...
