Why Record Video?

Lean transformations rely heavily on process observation

As a Result

They are extremely time consuming

leanEdit is 60%

Faster than traditional methods

Traditional Approach to Video Tape Analysis

Video the process or the operator

Playback video on a TV or computer

Manually enter the time for each step while playing back video

Issues With Traditional Video Analysis

The leanEdit Process

Video the process or the operator using a smart device and then upload the video into leanEdit.

Individual Users

Upload video to your leanEdit.com account

Small Teams

Use our laptop version to analyze using your PC

Enterprise Customers

Upload video to leanEdit deployed on your own server

Capture and Categorize

leanEdit captures and categorizes work content through the creation of separate video clips that can be played back on demand

leanEdit’s user friendly interface catalogues your videos and projects as well as providing a facility to capture favorite video clips. It’s fully editable and generates detailed reports within the application itself that can also be exported as a spreadsheet.

leanEdit utilizes the benefits of mobile devices to shoot video and combines it with a powerful, integrated application that breaks your process into clips for deep process analysis.

“There are a variety of software packages available today. leanEdit is the first that works specifically with our analysis methodology and approach”
The BASICS Lean Implementation Model
“This software has the advantage of integrating the video and analysis sections into one seamless interface. During video analysis, it’s a good idea to identify sections of video to be referenced later as best practices or examples of waste. Traditionally, finding clips can be a tedious process, involving time-consuming video editing. leanEdit automates this process with the “favorite” clip-capture feature allowing the user to identify these clips in real time as they analyze video! These favorite clips can also be merged for convenience!”

“The software has reduced our analysis time by greater than 60% and is yielding better analysis”
Business Unit Manager
"The average analysis time had an improvement from average of 12 minutes to average of 6 minutes of analysis for 1 minute of video.....The software is very helpful and intuitive"
Process Engineer
“I just blew through 40 minutes of a changeover analysis (normally 3-4 hrs) in about 2 hours"
Medical Device Lean Engineer
“LeanEdit revolutionizes time study analysis! My colleagues and I are blown away by the efficiency this software brings to the work of process improvement. I highly recommend this to anyone or organization looking for a way to improve your improvement process."

Lean Analysis Done Lean

“Our site has recently used the LeanEdit software to analyze cleaning choreography and setup activities for individual work-centers in manufacturing as well as our packaging lines. The software has reduced our analysis time by greater than 60% and is yielding better analysis.

In addition, to these traditional uses, we have recently identified that there is a training application that we will be trialing. We are in the process of executing Factory Acceptance Tests for a new packaging line.  During the Factory Acceptance Tests our Process Engineers will be filming the change-over at the vendor, editing the video to show only the ideal execution and then using the output as a training video for operators so they are familiar with the equipment and change-over activities. We hope this will reduce our go –live ramp up.”
