An organization can never phase out all waste, but the goal should be to reduce enough waste so that an organization can become a notable competitor. Lean tools are particularly good at helping companies to accomplish this. One of our favorites is Standard Work, which is a baseline for Kaizen, and the foundation of modern production systems. It is one of the more powerful Lean tools in the quest for continuous improvement, and our shop floor experts spend time with your team documenting the current best practices, improving upon them, and then creating new baselines for further improvements.
