Manufacturing & service improvement

more for the same, the same for less

At WLP, we work with you to systematically and pragmatically facilitate change, simplify processes, improve efficiencies and productivity, reduce variability and achieve excellent customer service. Our experience has been gained through working in a wide range of manufacturing and service organizations including food, chemical, automotive, financial, health and social care.

Our approach is based on the world renowned Lean Six Sigma. Using systematic techniques and data to understand the processes and working with your people from senior managers to shop-floor staff, we can identify opportunities and then deliver real benefits as required.

We use “Lean” to focus on eliminating time and resources that do not add value to your products and services, while “Six Sigma” focuses on ensuring your organization delivers the quality and service required every time.

We can train and coach individuals within your organization to deliver or we can work with you to implement the change through an involvement and facilitated approach. Our extensive experience of working in unique, complex environments and solving those problems that keep coming back, means we can focus on giving you cost effective solutions.

Typical benefits include:

  • Better product or service quality and consistency.
  • Increased customer satisfaction.
  • Improved productivity, capacity, output and reliability.
  • Reduced process or cycle time.
  • Less waste, reduced downtime.
  • More successful and faster product launches.
