A Global OEM’s Approach to Process Savings

Virtually every business needs to find ways to control costs, streamline processes and leverage user data to measure and elevate performance across multiple KPIs.

Manually scanning and entering orders cost roughly 3½ hours of lost labor each day - that’s 728 hours a year.

Many use the 5S method of workplace organization with its mantra, “A place for everything, and everything in its place.”

For Munters, a global manufacturer of air treatment and climate control solutions, this focus on Lean and 5S is a daily practice.
