    Why BIC?

    BIC is an international leader in applying the appropriate combination of lean manufacturing techniques, aimed at increasing productivity, reducing operating costs, and improving the overall efficiency of operations. BIC’s expertise lies in achieving sustainable productivity improvements and effective change management.

    Our people have earned a worldwide reputation for the successful introduction and effective implementation of operational improvements in numerous multi-national companies including Heineken, Coca Cola and Unilever (Lipton).

    To sustain the changes, BIC and the client always work together in cross-functional teams to initiate and drive change throughout the organisation, leading to bottom line benefits.

    Our Approach

    The Machine Plan

    The Machine plan focuses on the improvement of the reliability and capability of the critical assets by minimising the six major losses. Other benefits realised are an increase in capacity, output, flexibility and responsiveness.

    The Method Plan

    The Method plan focuses on the identification and elimination of waste, such as: - waiting time, double handling, travelling etc.. Waste elimination is achieved through a combination of simplifying the existing processes and standardising the current work practices.

    The Measurement Plan

    The Measurement plan focuses on the design and implementation of an effective Management Control & Reporting System (MCRS).

    The Manpower Plan

    The Manpower plan focuses on the capitalisation of the company’s most precious asset, its people. An empowered, well trained and highly motivated workforce can achieve the “impossible”. BIC will facilitate the change management process and the necessary shift in attitude required to initiate and sustain any Continuous Improvement activity

    The Material Plan

    The Material plan focuses on the reduction of the inventory levels (raw materials, work in progress and finished goods), increasing stock-turns and data accuracy. Increased visibility and rigorous control will result in better alignment between planning, production, purchasing, outside suppliers and the customers. This leads to lower frequency of stock-outs
