What are the Main Concepts of Lean & how will they benefit me?


Lean is a business system for organizing and managing product development, operations, suppliers, and customer relations It is the production of goods using less of everything compared to mass production: less human effort, less manufacturing space. It is asystematic, continuous improvement approach that focuses activities on reducing waste while aligning them to an overall growth strategy.

A Lean Organization essentially eliminates waste throughout the business.  Waste costs resources, but adds no value for customers. These non-value-added activities typically equal 95% of all manufacturing effort, while only 5% of manufacturing activities add value.


Why should you learn about Lean?

Today Business Profitability is directly proportionate to how well you combat competition, i.e. how well you can ‘innovate’ / ‘reduce waste’? The most common benefits of innovation/waste reduction are awareness of customer supremacy, increased capacity, higher quality, and a spread of cultural change. This last raises the employee level and helps them contribute to the company success.


Innovation / Removal of Waste are the key?


As a strategy rather than simply a production tool Lean, can generate tremendous innovation/waste removal potential for any organization.  Whether you develop new products or services, improved internal processes significantly change organizational structure, or alter marketing strategy. Innovation/Removal of waste will improve the bottom line.





The Basic Profile of a “traditional manufacturer”

  • Inventory is built to forecast.
  • Inventory is then used to satisfy customer demands.
  • Excessive work-in-process (WIP)
  • Large batch sizes.
  • Focused on a small piece, not the strategic whole.
  • Cost-cutting focus.
  • Department efficiency matters most.



How is Lean different & how will it help increase profits?


  • Reducing cycle time
  • Reducing inventory and work-in-process
  • Reducing costs
  • Increasing capacity
  • Increasing productivity while improving quality
  • Increasing sales


Are U Ready?


To determine whether you are ready for a lean transformation, ask yourself the following questions?


  • Are you ready to unlearn?
  • Are you willing to shift from traditional paradigms? Wear new spectacles?
  • Are you committed to making necessary changes?
  • Are you willing to train dedicated lean colleagues & co-workers?
  • Is your focus broader than the shop floor?
  • Are your objectives greater than mere cutting costs to compete on costs?

Vedzen Institute: Vedzen Institute is a body corporate instituted to provide education, to assist clients in their pursuit of World Class Manufacturing & to promote Lean thinking in all walks of Life. Their objective is to train a core group of people within your organisation / institution to acquire new “hands-on” skills / capabilities in implementing Lean / WCM tools & techniques, such that they can be taught to ‘Fish’ from us & in turn multiply as well as pass on the skills either down the line or horizontally in academic circles.

We believe that ordinary people if properly motivated & trained can turn in extra-ordinary results.

The Vedzen Institute is the brain-child of Mr. Yogesh Vaghani, a Working Director at Milton Plastics, whose practice of Kaizen at his own plant over the last decade has got for his company the first ever Kaizen Award Worldwide. He now desires to pass on his experience & knowledge to a future generation, willing to accept the challenge. The faculty working closely with him shares his vision.
