The aim of lean thinking is to create a lean enterprise, one that sustains growth by aligning customer satisfaction with employee satisfaction, and that offers innovative products or services profitably whilst minimizing unnecessary over-costs to customers, suppliers and the environment. The basic insight of lean thinking is that if you train every person to identify wasted time and effort in their own job and to better work together to improve processes by eliminating such waste, the resulting enterprise will deliver more value at less expense whilst developing every employee’s confidence, competence and ability to work with others.
Lean involves a fundamental paradigm shift from conventional “batch and queue” mass production to product-aligned “one-piece flow” pull production. Whereas “batch and queue” involves mass production of large lots of products in advance based on potential or predicted customer demands, a “one-piece flow” system rearranges production activities in a way that processing steps of different types are conducted immediately adjacent to each other in a continuous flow.
This shift requires highly controlled processes operated in a well maintained, ordered, and clean environment that incorporates principles of employee-involved, system-wide, continual improvement. JOMI Technical Services Group will be a contiguous addition to your organization to mature to these manufacturing levels, therefore creating a sustainable environment for the future.
