Lean Benchmarking Accelerates Manufacturing Performance

“There were a number of benefits to our organisation; this gave us independent feedback on the status of our lean implementation, it also allowed us to compare and  highlight strengths and weaknesses with others in the lean community and analyse our current status. The gap analysis offered useful suggestions for improvement projects. The assessment also focused on cultural and organisational transformation rather than just the individual uses of lean tools.”

Manufacturing leaders in the South East talk about Lean Benchmarking

“If you are interested in making improvements within your business then I would seriously recommend that you consider using this tool as a part of your continuous  improvement tool kit. It really helped to put my company’s Lean competencies into perspective so that we could look into the future with clear goals ahead of us. Overall I am very happy with the online Lean Benchmarking tool and with the after service provided. The questions are clear and understandable. The report generated after the questionnaire is submitted is very in-depth. All of the information and help provided is clear, down-to-earth and informative.”

“The benchmarking process has been really valuable, it enabled us to consider how well we are doing and where we need to focus next. It wasn’t just about seeing how well our score compared to others (although obviously this was very interesting) the recommendations within the report meant we could identify what we needed to do next. We have now started to build our lean road map with lean objectives linked directly to the Genzyme businesses goals.”

What is Lean Benchmarking?

Lean Benchmarking is the process used to compare an organisations processes, performance and lean competencies with others in a similar industry or business sector.

Why bother with Lean Benchmarking?

  • Benchmarking enables manufacturers to identify competitive threats, highlight opportunities and improve operational performance.
  • Allows manufacturing and operational leaders to discover how lean principles can transform an organisation, improve productivity and increase profits.
  • Helps lean leaders kick start improvement activity and stay ahead of the competition.

Essentially, lean benchmarking provides a ‘snap shot’ of current performance compared to others. The resulting gap analysis clearly highlights the future potential and the most appropriate focus for improvements to increase performance and operational productivity.

What makes LeanBenchmark™ so different?

  • This is a unique online lean tool, whilst there may be other business benchmarking tools, none are specific to lean, compare lean performance or  can provide manufacturers with a personalised benchmark report with detailed recommendations – LeanBenchmark™ does all these things.
