OpEx & Lean management

Many organizations strive for Operational Excellence in optimizing their business and production processes.

Some succeed and others fail. There are several reasons why those companies fail to achieve their goals. Do you strive for operational excellence and are you looking for a reliable partner with the right expertise, extensive experience with conventional methodologies and tools, and the right soft skills to achieve a “cultural change” within your organization?

We have a wonderful team of Operational Excellence colleagues that can help you with projects in all sectors and specialties:

  • assessing your current situation and gathering data
  • formulating your goals
  • creating an OpEx plan
  • implementing the plan and following up the status

Operational Excellence can be defined as the effort and actions a company puts into place, through standardized processes to drive its conviction, to deliver towards the customer the requested product(s) and service(s) at the requested moment and the desired quality. At the lowest production effort/cost and price the customer wants to pay for it.

To us, OpEx is not tied to a particular sector or industry. OpEx methodologies and tools are applicable to all sectors and to all processes or services, in operational as well as administrative environments.

Are you looking for a partner who can support and/or train you quickly and efficiently in the field of OpEx methodologies and tools? We can assist you with the implementation of kaizen, lean, six sigma, human error reduction (HER), PRINCE2, scrum, KANBAN, visual management, VSM, 5S, SMED, OEE, FMEA, MMO, dashboards, TIER, TIMWOOD, MINITAB, Gemba , TPM, poka-yoke, DFSS, Lean Introduction Game …

The success factor of OpEx & lean management

We know from experience that OpEx can only be successful if it becomes a part of your corporate culture. In other words: the pursuit of OpEx is a ‘culture change’ process. So it does not suffice to use the right tools; a successful OpEx process also requires the right soft skills. OpEx must be accepted and pursued by everyone within the organization. Only then will it be successful.

That’s why – at Pauwels Consulting –  we continually invest in:

  • our knowledge of OpEx
  • our experience with current methodologies and tools
  • the soft skills and teaching skills of our consultants
  • the ability of our consultants to achieve a “cultural change“ in your organisation

This last point is a crucial factor in successfully completing your OpEx – Lean project.
