Lean Business Intelligence - Startup Launches at The eFactory

Share Article

Lean Business Intelligence announces a powerful solution for keeping teams focused on performance improvement; a merger of Lean Manufacturing and Business Intelligence (BI).

Lean Business Intelligence (BI) was developed and launched in The eFactory by Marty Preuss. Marty combines his extensive operations background and process improvement experience with modern business intelligence tools to help manufacturers reach full potential results. With past certifications from APICS, ASQ and a Six Sigma Black Belt, he has continually sought an approach that is effective in any process.

Marty started Lean BI because he found that there isn’t a conventional method that unites an entire management team in the quest for performance improvement. He said, “Lean BI changes the game by making a process’s story obvious to all; everyone knows where the opportunities lie and who’s addressing them.”

Marty uses Lean Manufacturing techniques to develop a deep process and data understanding, then deploys that knowledge to create team focus and accountability. Marty works with the client’s team until the process yields expected results. The client’s team continues using Lean BI into the future; preventing backsliding and driving on-going improvement. The outcome is industry leading performance and results.

Lean Business Intelligence has a track record of results:

  • Poor financials and low customer satisfaction was reversed at a $50MM manufacturer with a Lean BI scheduling overhaul. Profits doubling from prior year.
  • A 50% reduction in operating inventory turned a run-of-the-mill performer into a working capital industry leader. Inventory was reduced in this organization’s 25 facilities around the country, a $20MM working capital reduction.
  • Waste reduction of $1MM. Though this business collected large amounts of data, waste levels remained excessive. Lean BI reinvigorated a stale improvement effort.

“Lean Six Sigma, one of the most popular manufacturing performance improvement approaches, is bloated and opaque compared to Lean BI. I am excited to provide a better alternative to my clients,” said Marty.

“We’ve seen the progression of Lean BI from idea to fruition, and we are pleased the company is launching in The eFactory. While this will assist manufacturers across the country and internationally, there are also many organizations that stand to benefit locally,” said Brian Kincaid, Director, The eFactory
