GEOLEAN SOLUTIONS

A key element of the Toyota System is understanding how each element is connected, without being overwhelmed with how to create positive change. Every solution, focused or broad, is judged on how it works with and improves the entire system. This connected hierarchy of systems extends from the overall company to specific processes in each location. In this context, Geolean solutions work together to build an Engineered Material Flow system. Flow of materials and information is the lifeblood of your facility and at the heart of everything we do. Our solutions address the problem of getting your materials where they need to go in a way that’s safe and effective. Specialized training is provided so each client understands the system, solutions, and tools to change easily and meet new production standards or introduce a new process.

ENGINEERED MATERIAL FLOW

Engineered Material Flow orchestrates the exchange of material and information. It governs the way things move, what makes them move, and what happens from one process to the next. Structured correctly, the system helps people organize their work and react to unexpected changes, to solve problems. Any tool, process, or “thing” is just a potential solution to help people use the system. Our approach combines analysis, lean principles, and process design to support successful implementation. Our physical products, like the MakitLean tube and joint modular assembly system, flow racks, and fork-truck eliminating carts bring the system to life. But throughout each step of our process, we strive to keep the concept of engineered material flow at the heart of everything we do:

ENGINEERED

At first look, the process of improving material delivery often seems to present more challenges than solutions. It’s easy to get the cart before the horse (literally) and fail to consider in advance every touch in the flow process. We have been through this journey with hundreds of clients and will engineer the right approach to 

your initiative and help to define the cost justification associated with options before you begin. Geolean engineers solutions with benefits based on the location, size, weight, frequency, and space available for your application.

MATERIAL

Geolean specializes in moving parts, and considers packaging, ergonomics, and part presentation essential to material flow. The primary goal of our service is to safely move your material from point A to point B in a way that makes sense and saves dollars.

FLOW

The action, philosophy, and discipline behind every single touch is defined by flow. It’s moving and resetting your operations in a scientific manner that keeps your employees safe, prevents error, keeps production moving, and most importantly, makes your life easier. Our goal is to ensure your materials and processes work together like a well-oiled machine.
