Layout is an integral part of any Lean implementation. The Leading Edge Group provides Lean facility/building design expertise that allows our clients to improve workflow of new or existing facilities.
Lean facility design principles examines key wastes such as:
- Motion - Walking, Searching
It analyses the flow of the process and provides a design strategy which optimizes space, reduces walk-around time, reduces waiting time and develops a logical and systematic flow of work and people through the facility. It has been applied successfully to laboratories, healthcare, manufacturing and office buildings.
It requires the collaboration of the staff (the process experts), the client and architectural, engineering and design experts. The Leading Edge Group has created a structured approach and methodology to ensure the needs of the end user are supported.
The Leading Edge Group has been engaged by architectural firm Kasian to work on a number of healthcare facility design projects in 2012.
