Our real-world expertise in lead-time reduction and supply chain management has helped leading corporations become significantly more profitable and competitive.

What do we do?

Every company today is challenged with managing increasing costs and intense competition. This is nowhere more prevalent than in the manufacturing sector. Whether you are vertically integrated or use an outsource model, you experience missed order dates, high product cost, declining market share due to delivery time or cost problems, or limited capacity. FlowVision can help.

How do we do it?

FlowVision offers a variety of services, including:

  • Business Analysis, a detailed report identifying your target implementation area, associated benefits, educational requirements, timeframe, and resource requirements
  • Workshops, e.g., Lean Flow Line Design & Factory Design and Lean Material Strategy
  • Implementation, beginning by collecting validated and formalized activity data. This data ultimately becomes the basis for line and kanban design and maintenance.
  • Software products including our new ION (Inventory Optimization Network) application. ION enables you to set ROP values using FlowVision’s proprietary, mathematically-based statistical sizing methodology. 
  • Audit Service, offering you the opportunity to have a team of our experienced consultants return to your implementation site. We measure the success of your initial implementation, and offer assistance for continuous improvement.

How do we work with clients?

Every member of our organization has multiple years of individual "real-world" execution experience in Fortune 1000 companies across the globe. FlowVision offers implementation programs that are tailored to your specific needs. This customization lets you implement at your own best pace. Regardless of the time frame, our deliverables are still the same - complete satisfaction.
For clients using MRP systems, your system can be modified in order to complement the new Lean Flow techniques implemented in your the production processes. At the completion of your Lean Flow implementation, we leave you with the line-design and kanban-sizing tools, for you to use and reference. You may then keep your Lean Flow data current with your continuous improvements.
