Lean development director
My driving force: significant reduction of inventory, lead time and failure costs without investment combined with excellent delivery performance.
As a former business manager in the steel industry and Business unit manager for aerospace, implementing and training Lean Management tools for more than 20 years in technology-oriented companies is now my biggest challenge. I have experience with batch and single piece production/assembly, development and trading companies, from small to large (> 400 Fte) international companies. This Lean Management programme has been used by me in more than 200 companies over the past 20 years. This involves the development of basic and advanced Lean training courses for employees of all levels, development of Lean Roads maps, Lean Assessments and have had the opportunity to supervise more than 500 Kaizen events in the process.
Tools used: Value Stream Mapping, 6-Sigma analysis techniques, Configure-to-Order, TPM, SMED, Kanban, Poka-Yoka, Kaizen events, 5-S and more.
My speciality: Operational hands-on support to management and shop floor on Lean-focused activities.
