By applying a proven process of developing and communicating a vision of a future state, determining the current state of the organization and equipment, analyzing and recording the gap, develop a plan, establish teams and manage change, a business can achieve a 10 to 1 investment return. This return is a result of increased productivity due to less unplanned downtime, slow time, changeover time, defects, scrap and waste. Customer service will increase. Cost of Goods sold will decrease. Fewer assets are required to make the required production and less finish goods inventory.
