SHORTEN LEAD TIMES

Shorten Lead Times

Reduce order to delivery time from 10 months to 6 weeks.

Time from order to shipment is just too long? You feel it as clients are unhappy. And you often have exactly on stock, what you don’t need. The longer the Lead Time, the more you need clairvoyance, so to be able to order what’s needed. Mistakes lead to scrap. And long Lead Times always result in too much WIP and a lot of bound Cash. To understand, where to win most with lowest effort, we start with our Potential analysis. A typical next step means understanding which processes are crucial to improve. For example from Forecast to Purchasing. Or preparation of orders. Usually, here we start with our Lean Process Transparency. Result is a measurably reduced Lead Time, which becomes noticeable after a few weeks.  The big mid-term benefit: The improved transparency leads to a new style in working.
