Godlan Introduces Lean Technology Strategy for Discrete Manufacturers

With Kaizen Events and Value-Stream Mapping Workshops, Customers Learn Proven Ways to Identify & Eliminate Waste.

August 18, 2009 (Greenville, SC) - Godlan, an Infor SyteLine ERP Gold Channel Partner, announced today a lean technology strategy for discrete manufacturers. As part of the lean initiative, Godlan has developed a workshop series conducted at the customer's site that range from a half day to a week. By identifying and eliminating waste, manufacturing plants can re-engineer business processes so that the shop floor runs more efficiently.

Ed Lanko, president of Godlan, commented, "We found that many discrete manufacturers are actively looking for a systematic, organized way to analyze their production and non-production activities. They want a proven way to determine the value of each individual component so they may identify waste and eliminate it."

Godlan's Lean Technology Workshop Series includes the following sessions:

  • Class - 1/2 day, Lean training overview and road map
  • Business Assessment - 2 days, assessment and scoring of business processes
  • Value Stream Mapping - 2 days, current and future state mapping exercise
  • Kaizen Event - 5 days, training and development of processes

Godlan's certified lean specialist Dan Spiegel, commented, "Through my 25 years of experience implementing lean practices and leading 50+ Kaizens, I know first-hand the tremendous amount of value that manufacturers can gain. Our team can't certify you as a lean expert overnight but we can teach you lean principles and value-stream mapping exercises to help you quickly eliminate waste.
