More Profitable Growth

– more revenue, lower costs, bigger profits. Makes sense?

But, how to do it?

 

Sales are up – life is good?

But somehow Costs are going up faster than Sales?

Profitability down, cash being soaked up into Working Capital that isn’t working, Cash-Flow going negative?

Sounds like Lean might be the answer – eliminating waste

 

Lean has been around for decades, yet there are still those who say, “Lean didn’t really work for us.”

So, “Is there life beyond Lean?”

Yes, but not as we know it

 

It’s called flow – joining up the Lean dots, linking and synchronising the output from “islands of Lean excellence”

right through to the bottom line.

Here’s how to flow beyond Lean for

 

more Profitable Growth

better Cash Flow

greater Productivity

 

Manufacturing processes can become Kaizen’d “islands of excellence” in a sea of redundant inventory. In a 2-minute audio animation see how they can be synchronised in a flow for more Profitable Growth driven by Productivity and Positive Cash-Flow – click on the following, flow beyond Lean.

A couple of quick questions.

How much time does it take to actually make a fairly typical product in the factory? Minutes or hours?

How long does it take to actually get an order for that product through the factory? Days or weeks?

Why the disconnect? Why should it take say 3 weeks in a Working Capital Pipeline to make a product with 5 hours of work content?

Mind the gap. This pipeline is filled with Cash embedded in Working Capital that isn’t working! Does it really have to be that way?

What would it mean for your business if product was delivered in hours or days

instead of weeks or months

– with increased sales revenue and a proportionate reduction in costs?

How much more Profitable would that be?

How important is it to you to achieve that?

Case Study

AstraZeneca-logo

Background: Global UK-Scandinavian pharmaceuticals manufacturer of tablets, creams, solutions, syringes and other biomedical instruments. GM of the largest tablet factory in Europe was up against a capacity “glass ceiling” to business improvement he could find no way through without more significant investment.

Action: Together, we pioneered productivity transformation from push-based batch production of forecast “orders” to pull-based, demand fulfilment of individual customer orders. Output from discrete, mathematically sized reserves of semi-finished inventories between processes was sequentially replenished to demand. Critically, lab results and regulatory documentation were synchronised with production. Lab capacity was also increased through parallel productivity gains.

Benefits: Industry regulated batch quantities were reconciled with In-Progress and Finished inventory levels and customer demand. $1bn in cash was released from Working Capital within 12 months across multiple small to mid-size facilities. This was achieved without detriment to product availability.
