Lean Problem Solving
Do you know that in lean manufacturing, difficulties are not considered challenges per se? At TXM lean manufacturing, we pride ourselves on applying scientific methods to solve our client’s problems. We thoroughly investigate the core problem cause before we devise a solution. We later test the results by implementing the solution. Finally, we lock in the new technique through new standard work.
Apart from helping the manufacturing firms improve their processes, we also apply resources to supply finance, human resources, and sales systems. This article will discuss the TXM learning case study that we helped solve their processes. Our preliminary plan is to apply problem-solving approaches that reduces lead-time and waste. Moreover, our work ensures that our clients produce products according to customers’ demand. We also help our clients to generate a fast flow of products that will deliver products to customers within the shortest lead time.
Lean Manufacturing Problem Solving Examples
Our client from Guangzhou produced colored mobile phone coatings in surplus despite the uncertainty of selling. Although our client had a reduced lead time, colors and designs frequently vary, and models’ lifespans are quite brief. The coatings, therefore, became obsolete, and the client had surplus manufactured items in inventory.
Here are ways in which TXM Solutions help clients solve Lean Problem-Solving Case Studies:
- We utilize our value stream mapping technique to maximize on-value addition to the product.
- We ensure a waste-reduction process.
- We help create new processes to cut lead times for all processes.
- We ensure that customers receive quality products.
- We help minimize goods in the inventory.
Our client competed effectively in an increasingly competitive and dynamic market segment by implementing the above lean manufacturing problem-solving examples. Additionally, the lead-time was reduced by 60% while inventory by 50 %.
