Find out how we can help you transform your discrete manufacturing operations

Did you know that a lean transformation that converts your operations to a more focused continuous flow typically improves direct labor productivity by 40 percent and reduces the space required for manufacturing by 50 percent? Is six sigma better built in or inspected in? What are the best ways to eliminate bottlenecks? How can instilling the “championship” mentality in cross-functional teams lead to continuous productivity long after the initial event?
