Lean Logistics

The goal of the lean philosophy is to optimize productivity, quality, time, costs, and safety. Here, under the holistic approach of people, technology and organization, waste is uncovered, and inefficiencies and productivity losses are presented. The foundation for this is the stability and standardization of processes, which eliminates activities that do not add value and aims at an efficient use of resources.

Fraunhofer IML supports you with competent consulting services. With Lean Logistics, we convey the concept of lean thinking and help you to transfer methods and tools to your logistics processes and operations.

Using a coaching approach, we work with you to develop a unique lean strategy that encourages employee buy-in and participation. The focus is on breaking out of entrenched thinking patterns and developing new, creative solutions in a structured way. We work with your staff to identify current inefficiencies and provide the necessary Lean Logistics skills to identify waste and develop value-added solutions.
