A LEAN company developed a software solution to LEAN-OUT their Administrative Overhead!


Being LEAN has made our company profitable.  We went from the red to the black, our through-put has doubled and our inventory was reduced by 86%.  Our inventory turns went from 3 to 20, all of which is still improving (read about our success story) but a new system constraint has immerged, our company’s administrative staff is now burdened with 6 times more work!


What happened was a logical result of successfully reducing inventory levels and increasing inventory turns.  In order to maintain our Kanban controlled inventory, we generated 6 times more transactions and paper work for the Purchasing, Receiving and Accounting professionals.  Since we are ordering Kanban replenishment material everyday, our Purchasing staff is creating up to 150 Purchase Order line items daily.  When those line items are delivered, our Receiving Professionals are buried with a backlog of goods to receive, and placing them in their perspective Point-Of-Use locations.  Shortly thereafter, the Accounting Department was buried with vendor invoices for the received material.  


We could have increased our staff to relieve this new system constraint, but we decided instead to take the LEAN concept to the next level.  So we designed software to support our LEAN effort, and to relieve the additional workload that was placed on our administration through automation.


Text Box: A visual Kanban reorder signal (item identified with a Red Dot) is being scanned by a portable Bar Code PDA. Access Your Biz Lean Software is procuring this item electronically.  Material replenishment is made fast and simple.








Thanks to the Partnership with Weber Systems, Inc., Orca Technical Leans Systems developed a paperless Bar Code enabled procurement and receiving system for Kanban controlled inventory.  In addition we developed Lean Purchasing to convert and automate a visual Kanban reorder signal into Purchase Orders; which are electronically transmitted to the Vendor.  Lean Invoicing was developed to quickly reconcile invoices to receivables and post to Accounts Payable.
