reLean's Lean Ecosystem
We have developed reLean's Lean Ecosystem to describe the landscape a company needs to create to ensure full use of Lean in their operations. Based on our experience in implementing Lean our experts are developing an answer of what it takes to capture all the benefits of Lean. In 2017, we will gradually create this part of our website and migrate the old parts below it.

Logistics is critical for many areas such as production, purchasing and quality. However, it is an area that often fall between the cracks a bit when neither production, purchasing or quality takes real responsibility for the end to end logistics flow. And logistic flows are end to end processes. We have combined the best of Lean and Supply Chain Management to create an initiative on Lean Logistics - Logistics as Toyota does it!
Closely related to logistics is purchasing. Todays global supply chains with outsourced manufacturing and development requires excellence in supplier management and supplier development. Any business that aspires to success must do a lot of work to create a strong and stable supply chain and procurement. We have created a focused initiative to look more at the Supplier Management and Development.
