(PRLEAP) September 19, 2007 — SysteMental, Inc. is a Lean specialty firm founded in 2000. Their Lean Project Manager Software is a web based solution developed to accelerate the capture of millions of dollars of savings often available after implementation of Lean Manufacturing and Lean Enterprise methods. Lean Project Manager was specifically designed to support Lean Policy Deployment. Lean Policy Deployment is the process used to put Lean methods into use to meet organizational goals for improvement.
SysteMentalís initial release was designed to help accelerate deployment and simplify management of broad continuous improvement initiatives. The solution has been sold to customers in more than 16 industries.

Recently, organizations like the Lean Enterprise Institute, who support the large number of companies struggling to make the transition to Lean, have begun in earnest to educate executives about the critical importance of an effective Lean Policy Deployment process. Numerous articles, books and seminars have followed in the wake of this effort. Due to this growing "wave of interest", SysteMental, decided to release their Lean Project Manager Software product again in August, this time with greater focus on Lean.

Lean Project Manager Software creates an online workspace that serves as a central platform for Lean Policy Deployment. The software helps Lean implementation teams document prioritized lists of Lean projects designed to meet organizational goals. This list, which is central to the Policy Deployment planning process, then serves as a visual management tool used during management review. During a typical review the implementation team gathers around a projected image of the software where they review progress made against the plan, discuss and document how the Lean initiative is going, how management can help, and what changes are needed to keep the plan on track.
