Lean Management 4.0

Not only manufacturing companies are wondering how Lean can be made even leaner. iFAKT has been pursuing this question intensively for some time now. The VSM 4.0 Value Stream Modeler software application is our answer to the customer’s needs:
With VSM 4.0 we have reached a whole new level by enabling multilevel Value Stream Mapping for an enterprise view and by offering a connection to live IoT data for continuous automatic reality versus target benchmarks checks. The algorithm responsible for the optimization assessment permanently highlights the largest discrepancies by suggesting an analysis of the next steps for continuous improvement.

VSM 4.0 is built on the cloud-based Microsoft Azure architecture

Thanks to the Azure cloud-based architecture, the integration of live data from the IoT as well as the interface with tools for capacity evaluation and simulation have reached new dimensions.
VSM 4.0 is our approach to the demand for making Lean even leaner. And we are delighted to be able to offer VSM 4.0 now also on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

Improve your analysis process with digital Lean shop floor management
and save costs

Permanent avoidance of inefficiency and waste are the fundamentals of Lean Management. The effort to perform analysis as well as monitoring and managing continuous improvement processes is quite high. VSM 4.0 improves the analysis process itself by minimizing the effort to identify and monitor inefficient processes as well as digitally modeling Lean business processes.
