The Extended Production System
S + P’s Lead to Lean® approach includes the company in its entirety as sustainable success can only be ensured by an optimization of the whole company. In many cases, the optimization of production by the means of a production system based on the six lean principles VALUE - FLOW - PULL - SIMPLE - ROBUST - SYNCHRONOUS is the first transformation step of a factory towards a process oriented lean organisation. At the same time, a lot of framework conditions decisively shaping the success of production are created in other areas of responsibility. Transferring the principles of the production system to those areas extends the production system to an operations system. The corporate divisions sales, order processing, research and development as well as procurement and service are particularly significant in that context. A coordinated approach and the integrated development of a specific operations system according to your processes and needs ensure the implementation of a consistent and sustainable management system according to your company.
