BMA Inc. offers a full and comprehensive range of education, training classes and consulting opportunities.
BMA Inc. is committed to providing custom-tailored education and training classes that meet client-specific needs. Our classes typically include experience-based conceptual information and ample opportunities for hands-on activities, all designed to give participants the tools to put lean manufacturing, lean accounting, and advanced manufacturing concepts into action.
The widespread introduction of lean manufacturing in recent years has raised challenges in every area within manufacturing companies. It has become clear that the accounting, control, and measurement systems must change for companies seriously implementing lean thinking. As with lean manufacturing, these changes affect many aspects of the company’s processes and represent a profound change in the way the company approaches the management and control of the business.
It is not possible, in the longer term, to sustain lean manufacturing and lean thinking without making significant changes to the organization’s accounting, control, and measurement methods. These methods represent an important part of the company’s culture and, as that culture changes with the introduction of lean thinking and lean manufacturing, it is important to change the company’s financial control and tracking.
There are a number of aspects of Lean Accounting ranging from the obvious need to significantly eliminate waste in the financial processes through to the conceptual changes associated with Lean Management Accounting, Target Costing, and Value Stream Cost Management. The changes required have a positive and a negative element. The company must remove the aspects of the accounting, control, and measurement systems that are harmful to a lean approach. The company must then introduce new methods and approaches that support and enhance lean manufacturing and lean thinking over the long term.
Our lean accounting workshops and kaizens are designed primarily for in-house presentation. They are most effective when the audience represents a cross section of finance people, operations people, lean specialists, and other support people. Because undertaking a lean accounting transformation will affect all these areas, we find this leads to a better understanding the issues associated with lean accounting and lean performance measurement, and to developing realistic implementation plans going forward.
Our workshops provide practical, hands-on training in specific methods of lean manufacturing, lean office, lean design, and lean sales & marketing. These events will have a little stand-up teaching but the majority of the time is spent working with the people on an actual Telex problem or issue. The idea is to learn the lean methods by using them.
These lean methods are divided into three categories; Fundamentals, Production & Flow, and Improvement. Most of these tools are applicable to every process and department of the company irrespective of whether you work in the plant, in the office, in the design shop, sales/marketing, or administration.
