The Challenge

• To use the existing isolated lean experience where ‘islands of excellence’ had been created.

• Build upon the ‘kaizen’ applications to a more structured and rigorous lean business system.

• Train and develop black belts in both Lean and Six Sigma disciplines to be strategically located in the business units across the UK.

• Establish how the business can transform it customised solutions into a Lean System using Six Sigma principles in harmony.

The Solution

The starting point for Symbios Consulting Group was to undertake a baseline review of the current manufacturing process and identify the key waste elements within the operation. This involved a two day review of the manufacturing lines, conducting a series of process maps and value stream maps.

Then Symbios Consulting Group, in conjunction with local site management worked with the process operators to develop an optimised process eliminating key waste areas such as double handling, transportation, inspection and inventory. From here the operations team were able to plan the re-organisation of the manufacturing process which was implemented during the various shutdowns. 

These improvements in the process, coupled with improved stock controls, utilising kanban systems enabled the organisation to significantly reduce work in process and improve product through put time and allow the consolidation of overseas businesses into the UK operations.
