What is lean manufacturing and why is it important for Ukrainian enterprises?
Lean manufacturing is a company management model that allows enterprises to create the maximum value for the client using the minimum resources. This philosophy was first developed and implemented by Japanese businessman Tahiti Ono at Toyota after World War II. This concept is especially useful for Ukrainian companies now and in the near future, as it allows them to produce maximum products in conditions of limited resources.
Lean manufacturing at Farmak in numbers:
“I had the opportunity not only to visit Ukraine for the first time, but also to fulfill a long-standing promise to the lean manufacturing development team at Farmak to come and personally see the progress made since the beginning of our cooperation in December 2020. I am looking forward to my next visit to see the heroic efforts and amazing results in other departments of the entire Farmak team,” said Gert Haar-Jorgensen.
Mr. Haar-Jorgensen especially appreciated the level of visualization and discipline of processes in the production of our company. More than 1,000 employees are involved in the implementation of lean manufacturing approaches at Farmak. For them, personal feedback from professionals with decades of experience has become a particularly powerful motivation. We are grateful to our foreign colleagues who help Ukrainian businesses to adapt and develop even in wartime conditions.
