Consultants in Lean and World Class Manufacturing

WCM Consulting AB provides comprehensive support in all aspects of Lean Manufacturing or World Class Manufacturing implementation. We initiate with an analysis of your current situation, collaboratively outline and agree on future ambitions, and provide unwavering support throughout the journey.

Implementation Plan

Plant Assessment

The process commences with a thorough analysis of your current situation and fact-finding. This involves analyzing current practices with regards to various aspects such as:

  • Stability and efficiency of processes
  • Process orientation
  • Productivity and reliability
  • Identification of bottlenecks
  • Corporate culture and leadership
  • Continuous improvements
  • Competence and training

This is a time-efficient activity, typically executed within a week per site.


This is a two-day activity aimed at reaching a common agreement on:

Ambitions for the Future

Together, we will outline your future aspirations. This vision will then be articulated in a clear and straightforward manner, using tools such as layouts and flow diagrams, sketches, or a "picture story" to illustrate what the factory will look like in a few years' time.

Strategies and Action Plans

Based on the situation analysis and future ambitions, we craft strategies and action plans that are tailored to your specific needs. We generally create a master plan that spans several years, along with detailed plans for the upcoming three months. Milestones and measurable targets are determined at this stage.

The Implementation Phase

WCM Consulting actively participates during the implementation phase to ensure targets are met, with scheduled follow-ups.

An important tool for this task is a combination of classroom and on-the-job training, incorporating methods such as Value Stream Analysis, OEE, 5S, SMED, and Kaizen.

We also offer support and coaching for management and key personnel, along with assistance in monitoring and visualization.
