e4 LEAN Engineering is our version of LEAN. Our blend of LEAN thinking and proprietary software tools can optimize any initiative.
In 2005, Singapore launched a plan to improve quality of life by enhancing greenery and flora in the city. Part of this plan included the construction of the world-famous Singapore Supertrees, pictured above, which were conceived and designed by Grant Associates and engineered by Atelier One and Atelier Ten. In addition to the stunning aesthetics, these tree-like structures also employ solar energy, irrigation and air intake and exhaust systems that mimic the ecological function of trees. Located in Singapore’s “Gardens by the Bay“, the Supertrees are a popular national attraction and a worldwide symbol of brilliant engineering and innovation.
At e4, we aim to employ this same engineering mindset to the healthcare industry problems our customers face. A recent JAMA review study found that waste accounts for roughly one-quarter of all U.S. healthcare spending – a cost of up to $935 billion annually. We believe that healthcare services do not have to be never-ending, wasteful, expensive or self-serving. We believe there is a faster, better way for healthcare institutions to solicit help that is as efficient and economical as possible, which will also make each client self-sufficient. We believe it can always be better, LEANER, faster, simpler, and more innovative.
e4 LEAN Engineering is based on utilizing proven, repeatable processes to achieve an on-time, on-budget initiative. We employ LEAN Governance, a3’s, Kaizens, Blueprints, and industry-leading program management and visibility software (e4caster®) to eliminate waste, accelerate timelines and reduce overall expenses.
Our clients start projects fast and finish faster, because we empower them with every lesson, shortcut and strategy from our constantly-evolving LEAN Engineering Playbooks. These Playbooks are full of tactics, pre-built templates and LEAN tools. These tools have been enhanced through extensive trial and error to help you avoid common program roadblocks and pitfalls!
Our proprietary LEAN Engineering Dashboards increase stakeholder accountability by providing complete visibility into the program, enabling leadership to make well-informed decisions about readiness. Utilize our pre-built workplans and templates to improve productivity and accelerate milestone completion.
