ABIDIAN (ǎ bǐ dē ǎn):
  Business-Speak for Excellent Change

The results seen with Lean, Six Sigma, and Total Productive Maintenance/Manufacturing can be daunting.  This is possible largely because organiztions are not as effective as they could be.  Many organizations have considerable inefficiencies, re-work, unreliable operations, and are spending an astounding amount of time on processes that have little or no value to the customer.

Abidian can help practically eliminate many of these inefficiencies.  We work hand-in-hand to 1) establish reliable operations using proven safety and maintenance techniques.  We then work to 2) identify those things the customer cares about (and is willing to compensate you).  Likewise, we help to 3) ensure they're done right the first time, every time.  After the system has been optimized, we'll 4) coach using the appropriate improvement tools to remove defects and variation ... yours, your supply chain's, and your customer's.  The ultimate goal is 99.99+% perfect ... a level being reached today by the best of competition!
