Time-based competition demands that today's manufacturers implement agile manufacturing systems. These systems, known as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), put the customer at the center.
The implementation of ERP is a major undertaking and culture change. It requires significant commitment of your company's resources. For these reasons, companies typically implement new systems only once every ten years.
BIS can help with all aspects of this process, from software selection to implementation. Each project plan is tailored to meet your unique needs.

What is a Lean Kaizen Event?
- Kaizen is a word that means continuous improvement.
- Lean is a philosophy of eliminating waste in all operations.
- A Lean Kaizen Event is a way to accelerate the continuous improvement and waste reduction activities by using a focused group of people on a team with a mission - to improve on cost, time and space for a particular product or process - and a deadline (one week from the start of the project).
Key benefits from holding an event include making fast, dramatic improvements in a process, and training employees in the tools that will help them spread these improvements throughout the organization.
