OUR WORK

We have helped optimise businesses across many sectors and in many countries.

Arranged by sector and function, our case studies provide relatable points of reference for others in the same field. By understanding how Lean has changed mindsets and provided a platform for long-term, sustainable growth and profitability for others operating in the same or similar areas, newcomers to its methodologies can begin to appreciate how Kaizen principles could shape their operations and change their fortunes.

Whether your business is booming and, through its growth, facing new challenges or, conversely, stalled or struggling, Lean Thinking can change mindsets from the ground-up, embedding long-term behavioural changes that are not only profitable in the short term, but sustainable over the long run.

We also hope that these case studies will give you an invaluable insight into how Four Principles’ unique, collaborative approach to Lean Methodology and implementation can be applied to your business – irrespective of sector, size or geography.

  • A Clear Structured Approach

    With Lean we are now structured and work systemically and that ensures quality, besides efficiency and productivity

    Marcel Grünenfelder, Managing Director CGS Group Saudi Arabia

  • Continuous improvement

    We have completed implementation of the Lean principles on more than 50% of our machines. Our indicators are very positive with machine output varying between 17% and almost 90% improvement

    Aiman Al-Masri, President and Chief Executive Officer

  • The real success

    We can now produce for customers based on demand, and this ability and flexibility allows us to save time and money. That’s the real success here

    Sinan Al Saady, Vice-Chairman CGS Group Saudi Arabia

  • Unlocking potential

    We were able to achieve something that we thought is beyond our abilities

    Sinan Al Saady, Vice-Chairman CGS Group Saudi Arabia

  • Implementing Lean

    The Lean activities we started 2 years ago have definitely impacted performance this year. Without this we would be struggling and the results would not be acceptable

    Aiman Al-Masri, President and Chief Executive Officer

  • Improved manpower utilization

    We have managed to avoid losses of over 300 productive manpower hours per month

    Aiman Al-Masri, President and Chief Executive Officer

  • Reduced lead times

    We were able to reduce our lead times by 43%, which means we were able to produce almost the same amount of products in half the time

    Sinan Al Saady, Vice-Chairman

  • Sustainable cost reduction

    We achieved product cost reductions of up to 7% and have also reduced our inventory over 60%

    Wadah Ali, Plant Manager

  • Increased output

    We have increased our output from that machine by 20% and the availability of the machine by 32%

    Aiman Al-Masri, President and Chief Executive Officer

  • Proved results

    This gave us an indication to go forward and implement the Lean principles on the rest of the factory

    Aiman Al-Masri, President and Chief Executive Officer
