Lowell Puls and the Chautauqua team have played an important role in assisting us to initiate Lean activities in our facilities. The results from our most recent event; additional capacity, higher productivity, and smoother production flow; have become a benchmark for our expectations as we select an area to improve. My team has benefited greatly from Lowell’s ability to communicate Lean concepts in a way everyone can understand.

We engaged Lowell Puls to assist us in resolving some delivery issues with a key customer. He helped us to quickly understand the problem causes, and then walked us through an implementable solution. After only 5 days of planning, and with three weeks to execute some key asset moves, the flow solutions that Lowell guided us through improved productivity by 70%, reduced inventory by $2M, and facilitated one day order response. These flow improvements freed up an additional $1M in daily shipments, allowing us to quickly resolve our delivery problems.

I was impressed with Lowell’s ability to drive waste out of our plants, generating millions of dollars of cost savings. He also greatly improved our on-time-delivery and quality of products to our customers. Lowell further initiated concurrent product / process development, greatly improving the launch of new products.
