Businesses are much like a three-legged stool, with legs consisting of Process,
People, and Technology. Ignore one of these legs, and the entire stool falls.

Studying, definining, and implementing the process is our #1 priority and our first step. We
have developed a complete toolkit of techniques to work with our customers to refine
We specialize in developing, teaching and aiding in the conversion to Lean Thinking.
Our Lean Manufacturing model is based on the Toyota Production System.
We map the process using Value Stream Mapping techniques to identify any potential problem
areas and develop a Future Value Stream Map to identify future process flow.
We work with the entire company, as well as first and second tier suppliers,
to get a macro view of the process. We employ a dock to door process
that is inclusive of all tasks within the company.
ISO-9000 specfications can be derived using our process maps. By stressing
quality and repeatability, we help to instill the disciplines required for
the ISO certifications.
The process is developed with measurable milestones to give immediate feedback
on the state of implementation. This is an excellent tool for understanding
how the implementation is progressing.
We continue to work with customers after the initial implementation to ensure
that the process is constantly being refined. Our process implementations include
a 1 year, 2 year and 5 year plan for future growth and capital planning.
