  • Just-in-Time (JIT) elements:

The Just-in-Time elements of Lean management consist of identifying and removing all sources of wastes within the business (anything that consumes resources and produces no value for the customer) to meet customer demand exactly, on time, quality and quantity.


Typically the ratio between Value Added activities to Non Value Added activities (wastes) in non-Lean companies is no higher than 7% to 10%. Removing these wastes will allow your company to achieve a competitive market advantage by enabling the following benefits;

  • Producing more with the same resources (productivity),
  • Lowering your inventories and Work-in-Process,
  • Speeding up time to market for new products
  • and accelerating response lead times to Customer demands.  
  • Built-in-Quality (BIQ) elements:

The Built-in-Quality principles of Lean management, focus on the shift of mindset and culture from measuring the quantity of defects raised for a given period of time (usually a month in most of companies) to embedding a high level of quality within the designs and the processes to make sure products (and services, designs, etc..) are produced « right first time ».


With this system in place, the quality standards are much higher and far less volatile, when compared to traditional quality ways of working.


Additionally, not having to perform rework activities to process the non-quality, leads to a reduction in the Cost of Non-Quality (CoNQ) and an increase in the Throughput of the system. 

  • Cost reduction elements:

The principles of product and processes advanced cost reduction through Value Engineering are about identifying system or process functions (primary, secundary and constraint functions) and the associated function costs to reduce the secondary costly functions,  with alternative solutions with no impact on the integrity of products.
