Top 10 Lean Manufacturing Consulting/Service Companies - 2020

The operating environment of manufacturers is rapidly evolving, transforming their manufacturing models. In their quest to maximize productivity and enhance efficiency, more manufacturers are migrating toward lean manufacturing practices. Pioneered by the Japanese Manufacturing company, Toyota, lean manufacturing emphasizes on “just-in-time” manufacturing, where inventory is kept at low “as-needed” levels; automation supervised by human workers is encouraged to maintain quality control; and focus is on minimization of downtime and transportation. In a nutshell, these methods are all about eliminating processes which do not add value, and delivering the best possible product to the customer as quickly and with as few barriers as possible.

As manufacturing processes are streamlined using lean manufacturing practices, organizations can better respond to fluctuations in demand and other market variables, resulting in fewer delays and better lead times. Besides, reduced waste and better workflow management improve sustainability, making for an organization that is better equipped to thrive well into the future. And ultimately, it enhances employee and customer satisfaction, which leads to a more profitable organization.

Several consulting and services companies are coming to the fore with several innovative technological capabilities and services to help manufacturing companies improve growth prospects, drive productivity, and efficiency by adopting lean manufacturing processes. They enable manufacturers to create continuous improvement momentum, drive innovation, and deliver sustainable prosperity to increase customer value. These companies also offer process-driven best practices for better materials management and predictive maintenance services.

With deep industry expertise in lean manufacturing, we have compiled a list of consulting/services companies that are transforming lean manufacturing for organizations.
