"Pat, Thank you and the rest of the GBMP family...I feel very fortunate to be part of the lean transformation at Signature Healthcare and working with a world class training partner. I greatly appreciate the hard work and effort that Bruce has put forth in the preparation and execution of the lean training at SHC under the MA Workforce Training grant. He has done an amazing job at training and coaching the management team on basic lean principles and workplace organization. I look forward to continuing to work together in 2012!"
"GBMP has been the most productive support group we have ever contracted with, and we greatly appreciate your practical approaches to lean manufacturing. Rui, John an I look forward to working with you and your group in 2012 and beyond."
"The program, from our perspective, has been a huge success so far and we anticipate it getting even better as we move further into it. The timing works as we match education with what is actually happening on the shop floor right now. As a result of the initial training of individuals from high visibility value streams/product lines from each department, the "gospel" is spreading enthusiastically. Bruce McGill is doing a fantastic job keeping our people engaged, presenting and explaining subject matter, never afraid to ask the difficult questions. He is the perfect Ying to my Yang. : ) ...

"Without a doubt, the lean skills I gained working with GBMP together with the SME Lean Bronze Certification (which GBMP helped prepare me for) were the deciding factors in landing my current job. I have been busy applying my knowledge in this new position and we are getting good results.....5S, single piece flow, Kanban, picking away at the 7 wastes, etc. The team has gone from 2 week manufacturing lead times to 48 hours and the new goal is 24 hours! "Push" has been turned into "Pull"! We have dropped our inventory to "unheard of" levels, accomplishing a 48% decline in total inventory over... View More..
"GBMP provided my team with a formal assessment of what needed to change in our FDA GMP/ISO 9000 operation in order to satisfy a major customer demanding a 75% reduction in lead-time. GBMP assisted us with securing a state grant to finance our training classes. Once this was in place we partnered with GBMP for two years to drive the Continuous Improvement mentality throughout the organization. They organized our training sessions and provided us with the tools to make the changes, but allowed us to figure out how to execute and sustain the improvements. When this 2-year program was complete... View More..
"We are very pleased with the impact and results of our relationship with the Greater Boston Manufacturing Partnership. The Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics Walpole site has realized significant gains/savings in operations as a result of the training provided to our employees by GBMP. Through implementation of the training, our organization has demonstrated improvements in quality, cycle time, and customer service. Our workforce is engaged in several improvement projects that will yield continued positive business results."
"As a result of the implementation of Lean best practices and principles by our employees, IPAC has increased capacity by 400 man hours per week and we haven't paid one hour of overtime or missed an order ship date in months. Training with GBMP has meant the difference between staying viable in the Northeast and looking elsewhere to manufacture. Standardizing work practices and eliminating waiting and looking for items have been the two greatest gains that we made. We made a small capital investment, which also facilitated the extreme increase in Productivity. The productivity improvement as... View More..

"GBMP's plant tours and seminars always give my company great ideas and new tools."
"I just want to say that the instructor and the material were excellent. I would highly recommend GBMP courses to anyone. I have been a Lean Practitioner for some time now and wanted to get a refresher on Visual Control Systems...boy did Ted do a great job. Please tell him "Thanks" for me."
