Reduce Waste with Lean Manufacturing

Watch your profits soar with lean manufacturing

Lean manufacturing is a management philosophy that helps businesses remove wastefulness.

With changing times, rapid technological advances and intensifying needs, businesses are facing efficiency and profitability challenges.  Adopting a lean manufacturing strategy will help businesses initiate solutions to these challenges.

For example, a simple reshuffling of layout within departments can ensure that the necessary processes feed directly into each other, maintaining efficient workflow, without wasting time and energy on interruptions between processes.

Implementing lean manufacturing drastically aids in the streamlining of operations and reduction of waste. It consistently focuses on the areas most noted for wasting time, energy and resources, namely transportation, waiting time, complaints, lost paperwork, overproduction, inventory and over processing.

The benefits of adopting a lean manufacturing strategy can be noted almost immediately.

Lean manufacturing:

  • streamlines operations
  • strengthens production processes
  • reduces wasteful habits
  • increases flexibility by improving layouts
  • reduces floor space needs
  • speeds up delivery times
  • reduces bottlenecks

Lean manufacturing provides businesses with the tools to succeed in the increasingly competitive global market, which demands faster turnarounds, superior quality and lower prices. Embracing a lean manufacturing work ethic ensures that your workflow processes will improve and you will see astounding results almost immediately.

WEB AND FLO AWARDED DEFENCE WORKFLOW CONTRACT

June 30, 2009

NEWS RELEASE – 30 June 2009

Melbourne: Web and Flo, Australian supplier of the web-based workflow software Kontinuum, has been awarded a contract to implement its workflow solutions within the Department of Defence.

The Australian National Codification Bureau (NCB), an element of the Defence Materiel Organisation, required a solution that would streamline its existing systems and implement a standard process for task management and reporting across the whole of its operations.

Deputy Director of Codification Services of the Department of Defence, Andy Mudie, said the NCB is looking to improve the delivery of codification services by balancing workload across all resources.

“We are looking to gain efficiencies across the organisation, as well as to gain better reporting of the business.”

Implementing a solution in an enterprise the size and scope of the NCB brings with it many challenges.

There is a pervasive need for appropriate access to accurate information, together with responsible information management.

Web and Flo’s unique solutions work particularly well in challenging situations, because their approach to Process Improvement is unlike their competitors.

Director Anna Fogarty said that one of Web and Flo’s main draw cards is that solutions are implemented quickly, with very little down time or disruption to the organisation.

This is particularly useful in an organisation like Defence where security and legal risks are high.

“We tackle one problem at a time, which is the best method for Process Improvement, and provide a tailored approach for each company. We also take into account the fact that most businesses cannot afford to have lengthy disruptions to their workflow, so we provide our tactical solutions quickly using stepped processes to minimise downtime,” Fogarty said.

“We are looking forward to a long-standing relationship with the Department of Defence.”
