Philips Consumer Lifestyle Division is a global manufacture of consumer electronic products such as televisions and personal care products such as shavers, etc. The company has factories in Europe, South America and Asia, and in addition to its own factories, it subcontracts manufacturing of products to many other companies.

In 2009 Philips Consumer Lifestyle embarked upon a Lean based manufacturing programme called ‘Simply Philips’. The intention was to initially apply it within Philips’ own manufacturing environment with the view to extending it to other elements of the value stream once experience had been gained within its own environment.

Aim: To create a world class Lean operation in terms of value stream performance through the application of lean methods and effective development and engagement of the workforce.
