What we do

We partner with you in your journey to achieving lean excellence. Lean principles have been enshrined by the famous Toyota Production System (TPS).

The American automobile manufacturers were the first ones to follow suite and emulate the system. However, mere emulation through slashing inventories did not help them recreate the Japanese succes.

We, at IdeaSmith, assure you that low inventory levels are amongst the various other hallmark lean results that are delivered. Our team will help you build a manufacturing system better fit for your employees, customers and products.

We put your enterprise on an organic lean journey and eliminate waste from the systems so that only minimal can healthily sustain your factory’s operations.
