The Lean Journey

Leamore are fully engaged in the lean journey and have been continually implementing  Lean  Systems within our organisation. Our staff  entered into lean training with  all our management team completing yellow belt in the lean management and are currently  progressing to green beet and black belt. The lean thinking has transformed  how we do our business  and upon brain storming sessions with our senior management team we identified  numerous areas  that benefit the productivity and day to day running of the business.

Leamore has implemented a reduce recycle reuse policy throughout all our sites.  As a lean initiative double checking quantities  before order,  recycle of waste  products for alternative uses throughout the project or on other projects from the concept our ideas boards has led to great results in minimising waste and improving efficiency.

Our Lean Systems

The Standardised PO system for sites connects the purchasing on site with accounts to ensure correct transactions.

Our Machinery have been vetted an gone under a Preventative maintenance policy, Daily and weekly checking from drivers and employees, Planning  system for service times of machines,  This is key to extending equipments life, improving downtime costs and ultimately saving time and money.

Our contract pricing system has made purchasing of mainstream item better discounted with greater value and availablility upon request.

The six week planner system  and identification of early appointment of difficult lead in items at the initiation of a project  has  improved efficiency and collaboration throughout our sites

An idea boards helps create an incentive for workers as if they come with the best idea they are rewarded . This also promotes site productivity.

Strategic planning of our site layouts is integral to the fluent and safe manner of the construction. It  provides our sites with greater collaboration between all team member, reduces motion movement, improves communication and generates greater team spirit.

Leamore Lean Initiative

Lean  and the Site Layout.

Our Management team recognised that our temporary site layout could be improved by applying the  Kaizen philosophy of operational excellence, striving to find possible areas of improvement to further enhance our principles.  Site Offices, Site Facilities, storage facilities and Laydown areas are planned out strategically collaborating with all our resources to continuously improve efficiency and minimise movement of  management subcontractors and employees. This is the heart of operations and greater communication between the team members and a decrease in downtime through movement have greatly increased productivity within our sites,

Last Planner System 

At Leamore our Master planning system  is focused on identifying major milestones that help gauge the pace at which the project will progress if it is to be successful.  This  enables completion dates for each of the major project key dates  and  for future planning  the purchase of major long lead in  building items.  Our Last Planner system allows us  to actively pursue constraints whilst allowing us  to manage our activities in 6 weeks phases  in advance of items  becoming an issue.  It also enables real-time tracking of the teams PPC (Planned Percent Complete) which highlights the opportunities to stretch your goals within the schedule.
