Australia Lean Manufacturing Case Studies
Lean manufacturing has revolutionised business processes, especially in ensuring sustainability as production and management methods change, customer needs and demands shift, and organisations keep growing.
Despite industry, lean technology is the best solution for any business to perform better, reduce overhead costs, lower lead times, minimise waste, boost their bottom line, and remain sustainable in the long run. This is evident from several case studies that show how different businesses have benefited from lean principles.
Selected Lean Manufacturing Case Studies in Australia
TMX Lean Solutions has worked with many SMEs and manufacturers in Australia, with each benefiting from our Lean Transformation. Our lean solutions and technology speak for themselves from reducing lead times in production, achieving rapid growth, and streamlining manufacturing processes. Below are some case studies from Australia.
1. Slattery and Acquroff – Streamline Manufacturing
Based in Melbourne, Australia, Slattery and Acquroff are manufacturers of high-quality, customised staircases using timber, glass, and steel for residential houses. Given its size and number of staff members, the company was facing issues in their manufacturing, sometimes not meeting customer demands. TXM Lean Solutions, as Director Rob Beard points out, was able to help them streamline their manufacturing processes and business in general. The company is enjoying sustainable growth.
2. Branach Manufacturing – Rapid Growth
Lean principles are your ultimate solution if you want to achieve rapid growth, as is the case with Branach Manufacturing, Melbourne. Upon working with TMX Lean Solutions, the company has a lean production system in place, which enhanced customer service and value delivery. The result is rapid growth.
3. Server Racks Australia – Lower Order Lead Times
Queanbeyan-based computer server racks manufacturer Server Racks Australia (SRA) was enjoying volume growth. But this growth presented some complexities due to higher and more sophisticated customer demands. Lead times, expedition, firefighting, errors, and reworks hit a record high.
Through TXM’s Value Stream Mapping, SRA could monitor and handle any issues in production or customer schedules promptly and significantly reduce lead times.
Lean Transformation Could Work for You
Lean principles are a sure way to transform your business, provided you have a reliable consultant and solution provider. You can lower lead times, streamline production and enjoy growth.
