Results are achieved by enabling people to fully engage their creativity by visualizing and improving the processes and ways of working.
- Ability to deliver projects and products on-time and on budget
- Flexibility and adaptability to change
- Quality of the new product or service
- Cost to launch and deliver product or service
Lean Office, Lean Finance, Lean Engineering and Lean Administration (TSM): A lean office transformation begins by visualizing the processes and their targets, organizing teams around daily and project-based kaizen activity, and building simple performance management systems.
Lean Innovation, Lean Startup & Lean Product Development (IDM): The lean approach improves the effectiveness of the process of innovation, startups, new product development, new product launches, new facility design and construction.
5S is a system of five steps to reduce waste and optimize productivity through maintaining an orderly workplace and using visual cues to achieve more consistent operational results. This lean method cleans up and organizes the workplace and is typically the first lean method which organizations implement. It encourages workers to improve their working conditions and helps them learn to reduce waste, unplanned downtime, and in-process inventory. The employees gain a sense of ownership, involvement and responsibility as their improved performance in productivity, quality and morale leads to increased profitability. The five steps are:
- Sort – clear the work area of unneeded items
- Set in order – create efficient and effective storage
- Shine – clean the work area
- Standardize – the best practices
- Sustain – make a habit of proper procedures
Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality output of process by identifying and removing the causes of errors and minimizing variability in manufacturing processes. Six Sigma is associated with statistical modeling of manufacturing processes expected to be free of defects.
The focus is:
- Reduce process time
- Reduce pollution
- Reduce costs
- Increase customer satisfaction
- Increase profits
- Specialty areas
The Lean Six Sigma methodology views lean manufacturing, which addresses process flow and waste issues, and Six Sigma, with its focus on variation and design, as complementary disciplines aimed at promoting "business and operational excellence". Both disciplines implement Kaizen, or change for the better, a methodology which includes making changes, monitoring results and then adjusting the processes to improve the next results.
Logistics is the management of the flow of goods between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet requirements of customers or corporations.
Warehousing is the procedure whereby a company gradually builds up a holding of shares in a company it wishes to takeover in the future.
SolidWorks is a solid modeling computer-aided design and computer-aided engineering software program that runs on Microsoft Windows and utilizes a parametric feature-based approach to create models and assemblies.
Construction/Capital Project Management
Project Management is the overall planning, coordination, and control of a project from start to finish; the goal is to meet the client’s requirements to produce a project that is both functionally and financially viable. Human and material resources, cost, time, quality and risk management are all part of the management equation. Capital projects are usually long-term and on a larger physical and financial scale as they deal with corporate infrastructure. Planning, organization, execution, monitoring and control of a project define an excellent Project Management team.
Manufacturing & Mechanical Design
Manufacturing and Mechanical Design deals with different manufacturing practices and includes the research, design and development of systems, processes, machines, tools and equipment. The primary focus is to turn raw materials into a new or updated product in the most economic, efficient and effective way possible.
ASME is a professional association that promotes the art, science, and practice of multidisciplinary engineering and allied sciences, continuing education, training and professional development, codes and standards, research, conferences and publications, government relations, and other forms of outreach. ASME is a nonprofit engineering society, a standards organization, a research and development organization, a lobbying organization, and a provider of training and education.
