Energy & Chemical

Business leaders in the energy and chemical industries are using lean strategies to remain competitive in one of the most cutting-edge industries in the market today. During these unprecedented times, energy remains a focal point of challenges across the entire globe. Existing economic uncertainties and government regulations have created instability in market prices, and led to concerns regarding energy consumption, supply, management, and resources. Lean strategies help leaders maintain profitability despite market volatility.

The costs associated with new technologies and the demand for cleaner energy alternatives have created the need for new and innovative solutions in the energy and chemical industries. In addition, the rapid pace of change has created a knowledge gap among the existing industry workforce that can only be remedied with true lean thinking.

Incito has worked extensively with companies in the energy and chemical industries. Our work with leaders and teams has helped companies maintain tight control over their resources and increase profitability despite constantly shifting positions in complex value streams. Customized lean programs for energy and chemical industries include:

  • Working with executives to define the company’s core mission or True North, and systematically evaluating how different processes support that goal

  • Implementing highly specialized programs that eliminate waste from all elements of the chemical manufacturing process

  • Creating lean processes that help companies deal with environmental waste and chemical waste in a safe, responsible, and cost effective way

  • Improving communications across functions and throughout the plant to maximize productivity and improve safety

  • Exploring safety programs and implementing lean techniques to ensure that industry best-practices are always followed

  • Using visual management systems to ensure that all areas of the facility are in compliance–and easily audited–at any time

  • Creating a strategic plan for workspace management such as 5S and point-of-storage systems that keep all vital areas of the plan under control at all times

  • Develop a culture of continuous improvement, problem-solving, and empowering the workforce to point out potential issues and suggest solutions to problems before they arise

Incito understands that keeping up with change does not stem from any one given process, element, tool, or technique. Instead, it requires a collective system that integrates the strategic utilization of these tools practiced each day, by everyone, consistently over time. This is the power of true lean enterprise transformation designed with the energy and chemical industry in mind.
