Callaghan Innovation needs to ensure that its targeted programme continue to meet ever changing business requirements.
Better by Lean, also referred to as Lean, is a programme aimed at assisting New Zealand companies to succeed in growing their businesses by:

 focusing on creating customer value,
 eliminating waste, and
 achieving continuous improvement.

“Lean 1.0” which is generally people led and leadership focused, gets a business culturally Lean. Lean 2.0, with Lean 1.0 being a prerequisite (the business is already on the Lean journey) is generally technology led.

To promote and facilitate the currency of Lean solutions, we wish to fund 2 separate pilots of “Lean Initiatives” that are specifically designed to assist businesses in any of the emerging areas for Lean. Cost of the pilot must not exceed $49,000.
Our preference is that these are technology focused and can include anything that delivers productivity gains, including but not limited to:
• IoT
• Robotics
• AGVs
• Augmented Reality
• General Automation.
