A Production System for All Factories Around the World - Lean Performance Gates for a Cleaner World!
For the production sites in Germany, Italy, USA, Mexico, Brazil, and China, Dr. Schönheit + Partner has developed a production system that creates the basis for a global Lean Management System in conjunction with Alfred Kärcher SE & Co. KG. The Lean Production philosophy follows six performance gates (Value, Flow, Pull, Simple, Robust, and Synchronous). Every production site is designed according to this philosophy. To develop such an international production system, it is necessary to build on the cultural differences in the change process. Thus, global standards are set and at the same time local economies are strengthened.
