Digital lean

Digitalize your LEAN process with Good Solutions decision turbo


RS Production suite provide facts to your Lean and Kaizen processes.
With this approach, you know where your improvements will make the most difference.

No production process will run faster just because of digitalization. But digital tools can help you and your teams reduce losses and realize previously hidden potentials.

Digital LEAN?

Factory management meetings, pulse meetings, daily management, and improvement meetings. Shift handovers, machine resetting, and operator maintenance.

We make sure you have access to the information when you need it. And that you can rely on the data collected. RS Production suite enables more people to make better decisions and see the results of many small and continuous improvements.

This method enables decision-makers at all levels to prioritize improvement to work more efficiently. The RS Production software visualizes and make real-time data and historic results accessible in all types of devices. With our dynamic checklists and instructions, best-practices are available directly at the machine.  It’s not unusual for our customers to increase machine efficiency by 20%, resulting in investment pay-off in a few months.

Digital lean with good solutions

RS Production suite from Good Solutions ensures that your factory has the right conditions for turning data from machines and operators into improved bottom-line results.

The limiting losses can be reduced and provides a great opportunity for improvement. Good Solutions have enabled more than 150 factories around the world to minimize costs and maximize value creating time. 

Supporting Lean, SixSigma and Kaizen

Our software helps you work according to the LEAN principles or the Six Sigma method to improve efficiency in machines and factories by:

  • systematically eliminate inefficiencies through continuous improvement (kaizen);
  • improve cost control and secure production cost estimates through reduced cutting costs;
  • increase machine efficiency and productivity, resulting in improved capacity and precision in deliveries.

At the same time, digital improvement process creates conditions to

  • avoid quality problems that reach the customer and reduce costs due to quality deficiencies (Six Sigma),
  • minimize stress through better overview and control,
  • reduce administrative work and dependence on individuals through increased automation.

RS Production suite from Good Solutions contributes to increased competitiveness by providing the right person with the correct information at the right time and making it easier for more people to make the right decisions faster.

The Lean concept

The idea of Lean is simple. It’s about focusing on what adds value to the customer. Essential parts of creating added value are systematically reducing waste and creating production stability and predictability.  Mainly, Lean is used in manufacturing processes, but the principles work in other areas as well.

What is waste?

The definition of waste is an activity that does not add value; from the customer’s perspective. Most factories do not utilize their full potential. Research from the Lean Enterprise Research Center (LERC) shows that as much as 60% of production activities in many industries are waste. 

Great potential for improvement

Many companies have great opportunities to improve their use of resources. Lean is a proven method that has helped many companies realize their potential by systematically removing waste. We like to help our customers to use less resources per unit produced, manufacture higher quality products at significantly lower costs, or meet increased demand without having to invest in new machinery. 

Simplifying lean work

It can be challenging to find proven and reliable solutions to make it easy to work with Lean. Good Solutions’ goal is to help manufacturing industries achieve better profitability through real-time cost control and provide the absolute best source of easy-to-understand information to improve efficiency.

The limiting losses can be reduced and provides a great opportunity for improvement. Good Solutions have enabled more than 150 factories around the world to minimize costs and maximize value creating time. 

What is Kaizen?

Kaizen means continuous improvement in Japanese. Kaizen is a strategy where employees at all levels of a company work actively to achieve regular and incremental process improvements. A powerful movement towards continuous improvements can be created by using the factory’s collective competence.

Creating a culture of improvement

The consistent application of Kaizen helps to create a culture of continuous improvement where all employees are actively involved in improving the company. By defining Kaizen activities aimed at improving specific areas within the company, there is a scientific method for standardized work on improvements. A Kaizen activity often includes a team composed of employees from different parts of the company. In companies that successfully introduced Lean and Kaizen, it becomes natural for employees at all levels to improve their part of the business continuously.

Improving standard processes

Kaizen works hand in hand with standardized work. Kaizen aims to find improvements to standard processes. It is important to remember that standardized working methods are alive and continuously developed through Kaizen.

KAIZEN and PDCA with RS PRoduction suite

The RS Production suite can contribute to Kaizen improvement work and every step of the PDCA cycle.


Without proper facts, there is a significant risk that invested resources do not maximize your return on investment. By visualizing change over time, progress or failure becomes evident. Successful work with continuous improvements begin and end with facts.

A typical Kaizen activity usually looks like:

  • Set goals and provide the necessary background information.
  • Review the current state and develop a plan for improvement.
  • Make improvements.
  • Review and fix what doesn’t work.
  • Report results and determine any follow-up items.

This type of cycle is often called PDCA – Plan, Do, Check, and Act. PDCA provides a scientific method for working with improvements:

  • Plan – Plan by setting goals for the changes to be implemented and determining the method of implementation. Design and design appropriate process changes.
  • Do – Implement and implement the changes proposed in the previous phase. Also, take measurements of the result and conduct any training.
  • Check – Check and evaluate the measurements, implementation work, and analysis. Document and report the results.
  • Act – Act by deciding on new changes, which then go into the planning phase (Plan).


RS Production can help identify where the potential for many improvements lies. The software enables you to analyze losses that limit the factory's value-creating time. By following overview reports and, if necessary, going down to exact loss causes, the improvement potential becomes clear and accessible to everyone - operators, factory management, management, and owners.

RS Production is a valuable tool to complement the decision-making process adding production data to the usual metrics such as potential, cost, and complexity of the required improvement. Together with the team (e.g., operators, maintenance, quality, planning), managers can decide how-to prioritize improvements.


RS Production suite enables the updated working procedure to be accessible directly at the machine or on a tablet. Many customers integrate RS Production suite with their ERP and CMMS (maintenance systems) for seamless cross-system reporting and order or component level traceability. Continuously collecting data to monitor the results of the change is essential for the next step.


It's paramount to monitor the result of the change continuously. At steering meetings (daily or weekly), in the improvement group, in management teams, for example. Did the change result in the expected improvement? Or does the change require further work to yield acceptable results?

RS Production provides standardized tools to visualize the results of a change over time. Furthermore, the software can ensure data quality and visually present results in real-time at the machine, on TV screens in the factory, or directly on your phone.


Many factories experience a significant challenge with improvement work is to fully implement with the new, improved working methods, routines, and decisions. That is why Good Solutions, together with several of our customers, has developed the Event Management and Forms functionalities in RS Production. These features enable operators to get dynamic instructions and checklists with reminders at the right time at the machine. Triggered by the number of units produced, a required machine changeover, operator maintenance, and much more.


Unfortunately, there are no magic solutions to all problems. But our software has proven ROI, it is used daily in more than 150 factories and enables you to manage your factory's profitability through real-time cost control.


Meet your factory’s strategic challenges by ensuring that your production and management teams have the right decision basis easily accessible to make fact-based decisions.
