Waste Robs Your Bottom Line

It is rare for a company to operate at near perfect efficiency. These seemingly small inefficiencies can add up and end up costing your company in the long run.

Working with management and staff, we aim to help increase the efficiency of your operations and your companies profitability.

Our approach is to:

  1. Consolidate all the known inefficiencies

  2. Help identify other areas where improvements could be made.

  3. Provide recommendations in the form of a workable plan

  4. Work side-by-side with you to implement said plan and attain tangible results.

All this is done using the Shingo Model; a time tested process that has seen operational excellence success in virtually every industry.

If your company could benefit from streamlining its processes and eliminating waste, start by requesting a no-obligation consultation.

Shingo is not just another Operational Excellence tool

Artboard 1.png

Operational Excellence leaders around the world invest substantial time and money on change initiatives that achieve positive results. Most often, they find it is hard to sustain momentum. Each new Lean tool becomes another possible solution or "best practice" only to create a temporary boost in results and a small taste of victory. It doesn’t take many such cycles for associates to feel jaded, frustrated and even burnt out.

The Shingo Model™ is not an additional Lean program or change initiative to implement. Rather, it introduces the 10 Shingo Guiding Principles on which to anchor your current initiatives. It fills the gaps in your efforts towards ideal results and enterprise excellence.

Dr. Shigeo Shingo


Starting his career back in 1945, few individuals have contributed as much to the development of the ideas we call TQM, JIT and lean as did Dr. Shigeo Shingo. He worked extensively with Toyota executives, especially their CEO Mr. Taiichi Ohno, who helped him to apply his understanding of these concepts in the real world and he helped them shorten set-up times on large presses and dies from up to half a day each down to a few minutes.

Over his life he wrote 18 books including “A Study of the Toyota Production System” & “The Shingo System for Continuous Improvement”.

In 1988, the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University recognized Dr. Shingo for his lifetime accomplishments and created the Shingo Prize for Operational Excellence that recognizes world-class, lean organizations and operational excellence.
