Lean and continuous improvement methodologies have successfully driven increases in factory performance over the last 30 years.
By applying lean tools and techniques and empowering the shop floor we have seen real improvements in manufacturing performance. However, with the rise of the connected and integrated shop floor we are now seeing a new revolution in factory productivity. Data is at the centre of that improvement, with our work with a range of companies in life sciences, automotive and consumer goods, showing that effective use of data can bring 10-15% improvements in productivity.
