Business Process Optimiser using Lean techniques

In conjunction with the AgriTech Ireland Cluster, ACE runs a business process optimiser programme to enable companies deliver process improvements through process streamlining, automation and digitalisation using lean management techniques.

It is developed for AgriTech businesses who want to fast-track an improvement project while developing continuous improvement skills and nurturing teamwork.

The programme focuses on supporting a company

to deliver a key process improvement project by bringing together a project team from the company to work on an improvement project using the LEAN technique Value Stream Mapping (VSM).

The approach comprises a blend of one-to-one engagement and structured workshops over a 4-month timeframe. Workshops are held in-person together with up to 5 projects teams from different functional areas and/or other AgriTech companies where shared learning is promoted.

Each individual participant gains practical skills in the application of LEAN techniques and on successful completion is awarded credits at NFQ level 8 from MTU.


The process optimiser programme enables project teams to optimise the value proposition for their customers following 3 distinct phases

  1. Map: Map current value streams and key process requirements.
  2. Benchmark: Examine business processes and compare with best practice.
  3. Improve: Change processes by developing and driving an improvement action tracker.

The benefits of the programme are:

  • Reduced process lead-time
  • Reduced costs
  • Improved quality
