Case Studies

We’d like to introduce some of our case studies to you.  These show exactly how our clients introduced Lean tools and techniques to their business.  While working with our clients, their employees identified improvements that they could make within their own work area.

Firstly, these case studies demonstrate the key challenges that our clients faced.  Next, we outline the key actions and how they decided which issues to address using the 8 Step Problem-Solving Process..  Then, we look at the key outcomes of each Lean project.  In fact, we were very impressed with the creativity, talent and innovation of our clients.  Finally, their employees share their key learnings – what they learnt individually and as a team while they were doing their Lean projects.

In short

As you can see, these clients are both service and manufacturing companies.  Again, proving the point that Lean can be used effectively in all industries.  For instance, some employees identified issues in Packaging Materials, Quality Control, Regulatory Training, Preventive Maintenance, Continuous Improvement, Waste Elimination, Lean Time Management, Will Generator, Purchase Order System and Operational Excellence.

In some case studies, the project may seem small.  But, these have really made a huge difference to the overall business.  In contrast, other case studies were large in scope.  That being said, our clients reported that their employees now work better together as a team.  Most importantly, they have a shared goal of improving their work area and as a result, the whole business.

At ETAC, we firmly believe that the expertise to develop business process improvements already exist in your organisation.  This has clearly been the case with our clients.  Through their employees’ Lean projects, our clients have streamlined their business and improved their processes.  We would like to thank our valued clients for allowing us to publish their employees’ case studies on our website.
