Most businesses apply Lean Manufacturing tools to combat waste in industrial processes. There is increased adoption of lean methodology for eliminating waste from your company’s administrative process. Have you ever wondered how it functions? This is a lean office.

Our consultants have a proven track record as they have experienced challenges in business first-hand. We have various TXM case studies showing high success rates for clients who hire our services.

TXM Senior Lean Consultant Lee Candy helps improve their manufacturing and delivery process.
Fundamental Principles of Lean Office
The role of a lean office is to eliminate waste or any non-valued components in a process. All processes within a company will have some element of waste unless it goes through multiple lean cases. Effective use of lean can create huge improvements in efficiency, productivity, cycle time, scrap, and material costs.
We follow the five basic principles for all Lean Office Case Studies at TXM. These are:
- Value: value should relate to a customer’s needs
- Value stream: Map all the steps and processes required to deliver the final product to the customer
- Flow: Ensure remaining steps are smooth after removing waste
- Pull: Improved flow will improve time to market
- Perfection: This is the essential step to optimizing the entire process
Lean is infectious, and it will enhance customer relationships to increase your success.
These Lean office examples show its effectiveness in enabling a business to understand its customer value and improve its processes. TXM is now present in Canada. Visit https://txm.com/ca/ to learn more about our lean solutions.
