The Event Theme – Lean Processing Systematically
Lean manufacturing is a management philosophy that pursues the continuous elimination of waste in all business processes though kaizen, also known as small and incremental improvement.
Many of us are familiar with this common definition of Lean. While it is certainly accurate, we often find that the specific benefits that Lean will have on individual processes, and eventually entire companies, are seldom discussed. While it makes sense that the elimination of waste will result in more efficient operations, this event will explore what is achieved after much waste has been eliminated from a shop floor and production process, mainly through single/one piece flow.

In Ireland, nearly 200,000 people are working in the manufacturing sector. As a process-rich environment, manufacturing and production environments are ideal for implementing Lean and Six Sigma principles. Benefits include
- Enhanced productivity
- Improved efficiency
- Streamlined processes and Increased competitiveness
Business improvements in Lean Manufacturing are enabled using Lean approaches, including: TPM/OEE, 6S & Workplace Organisation and PIT Meetings. Lean best practice is to first, identify waste; then, eliminate it and to identify areas of waste in manufacturing within Transport, Inventory, Motion, Waiting, Overproduction, Over-processing, Defects and Skills. Eliminating these areas of waste is crucial for the success of any Lean programme.
