Our Value Proposition

We help companies to provide faster and better products/services to customers at a profit by:
1. Identifying and eliminating non-value adding activities (waste) to increase efficiency & reduce costs
2. Identifying and solving root causes of variations that create inconsistent processes and results.

We help management to reduce operating costs by eliminating over 60% of non-value added process activities. Reduction in operating costs improves cash flow and profitability of the business.

We also help organizations to provide faster and better services to customers, thus improving customer loyalty and retention. By eliminating various forms of waste in business processes, we enable organizations to increase process flow speed and throughput, reduce waiting times, eliminate unnecessary inventory, and reduce product or service defects and deviations that affect quality.

4. Reduction in operating costs
5. Reduction in product/service defects, rework costs, and deviation from quality standards
6. Increased efficiency and productivity

Importance of Process Improvement
Industry studies indicate that 40-60% of most process activities are non-value adding and can be eliminated through process improvement.

The key business objective is to provide faster and better products/services to customers at a profit. Business process improvement helps to identify and eliminate various forms waste, that is, non-value adding process activities, and to improve product/service quality.

Non-value adding activities:
1. Consume valuable resources and increase operating costs
2. Slow down process flow and create bottlenecks
3. Increase process waiting time causing customer dissatisfaction
4. Increase rework to fix defective products/services
5. Increase inventory costs, affecting cash flow and exposing the company to obsolescence & damage

The Many Forms of Waste We Help to Eliminate
We perform process value stream analysis to help you identify and eliminate various forms of waste in the organizations. The following are the different forms of waste that we can help you to identify and eliminate to increase efficiency and reduce operating costs:

Manufacturing Waste
1. People (underutilized talent and skills )
2. Delays (waiting, late)
3. Inventory (holding inventory that is not immediately needed)
4. Facilities (idle machinery and space)
5. Transportation (unnecessary and excessive movement of parts and materials)
6. Motion (non-standard, excessive, unsafe work floor arrangement)
7. Defects (errors, rework, scrap)
8. Variations (inconsistent process and results)

Service Waste
1. Requirements not clear (people don't know or misunderstand customer requirements)
2. Analysis paralysis (an inability to make a decision, when sufficient information is actually available)
3. Wrong sequence (doing work out of order, often resulting in rework)
4. "Turf Wars" (competing against people inside the enterprise, rather than external competition)
5. Excessive and unnecessary approvals (unclear or inappropriate accountabilities)
6. Non-value-added overhead (work being done outside customer's requirement)
7. Low priority work (working on the wrong or non-important things)
8. Workplace space (idle, excessive, or inappropriate)
9. Variations (inconsistent processes and results)
10. Excessive automation (overkill, more than is needed to get work done
11. Information re-handling (rework, re-review, re-inspect/checking)
12. Excessive rework (doing things over again inappropriately)
