Lean 4.0

Lean 4.0

What is Lean 4.0

Lean 4.0 refers to the combination of Lean Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 tools.

Lean Manufacturing is a production philosophy developed by the Toyota Motor Corporation with the aim to reduce waste in the value chain in order to minimize lead time, costs and improve quality. With Lean Manufacturing, Toyota was able to gain a world leading position in the automotive industry.

Industry 4.0 aims to improve efficiency, transparency, flexibility leading to a scenario of mass personalization.

Both paradigms are promising to solve future challenges in manufacturing industries.

What Technologies?

For each Lean tool and method, the market is now offering several technologies able to multiply their benefits. It’s therefore important to understand new technologies in order to exploit them properly.

Some examples are:

What support?

Accialini Training & Consulting is able to offer you the adequate support to implement Lean 4.0 within your production site.

The approach used is extremely concrete and is based on the following phases:

Visit to the plant and collection of requirements: this allows us to specifically analyze the customer’s requests

Identification of technologies and preliminary planning: on the basis of the visit and the customer’s requests, the most suitable technologies are identified for optimize your processes with a structured methodology of technology scouting

Detailed planning of the solutions and technologies to be implemented: partners are identified and detailed times and costs are estimated

Implementation of pilot projects: for each solution, a small-scale pilot project is launched and the debugging phase is carried out

Large-scale implementation: once the validity of the identified solution has been verified, the solution is extended on a larger scale.

Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0

As can be seen from the name itself, Lean 4.0 exploits the trend of Industry 4.0, or that set of technologies, mostly digital, which aim to create flexible and highly productive production systems.

Accialini Training & Consulting offers specific services on this broad topic, from training in different formats to specific consultancy for the implementation of pilot projects in different fields.
