FEATURE — In the final article of his series on levelled production, the author debunks the belief that the Glenday Sieve is a method that can only be used in a manufacturing environment. People often ask me whether the Glenday Sieve can be used in non-manufacturing activities, and the answer is that this analysis tool can indeed apply to any type of process. Over the years I have come across examples ranging from closing the monthly accounts to recruiting new people, implementing a price increase in sales and even promotional planning and execution in a marketing department. In each of those instances, people seemed to talk about the same problems — firefighting, variability and lack of standards — and the Sieve helped them to solve them.

How the Glenday Sieve applies to business processes
Ian started his lean journey as a micro-biologist running a fermentation plant producing enzymes, where he first began developing lean concepts and principles for application in process industries. He then moved to the house-hold and toiletries division where he was responsible for initiating and implementing a pan-European supply chain strategy based on the lean concept of "every product every interval". After this he became Head of Policy Deployment at Colman's of Norwich where substantial increases in sales per employee, market share and profit margins were achieved by applying Lean Thinking across the whole company. More recently Ian has been working with companies as an independent Lean coach and sensei. His approach to applying lean in many types of industries, including chemicals, paints, pharmaceuticals, grocery, food and drinks, is refreshingly different, instructive and entertaining. Ian currently divides his time between work for LEA, delivering workshops for Lean Enterprise Institutes around the world as well as helping businesses to make their own Lean transformations. A graduate in applied mathematics Steve first worked on refinery scheduling and product blending systems for Shell UK.
