Tulip Lean Apps

Lean Manufacturing

Continuous improvement was never truly continuous, as it has always lagged behind data collection. With Tulip, you can digitize your lean manufacturing and start improving your operations in real-time.

Quick Start

Jumpstart your lean manufacturing journey with Lean App templates.

Save Time

Automate the data collection process to avoid transcription costs.

Real-time Kaizen

A new and better way to achieve Jidoka

Jidoka, often translated as automation with a human touch, relies on detecting, fixing, and correcting the root cause of abnormalities. With Tulip, you can leverage IoT enabled manufacturing apps to redefine what Jidoka means for your operations.

  • There’s an environment that’s constantly changing … people working from home, from offices, around the country. This software, because it’s cloud-based, allows us to form these operations really quickly.
    Engineering Manager, Lightspeed Manufacturing
  • The manual collection of information really wasn't providing enough data for us to make data- driven decisions. On my own, I was able to create apps that really drive process improvements and help increase efficiencies without needing a support team of IT. 
    Senior Process Engineer, Nautique
  • I was quickly able to create apps that improve the quality and efficiency of my operations, without having to write any code.
    Manufacturing Engineer, Vertex Pharmaceuticals
  • Production has gone up. With the analytics we are able to see the timing per step for each and every part in order to identify the bottleneck and concentrate on that individual step.
    Manufacturing Engineer, Techniplas
  • Operators are excited with this new technology. I was able to design a pretty easy interface to reduce the amount of clicks to input the data on our traditional Material handling system. Training of new operators takes less time. And today we are capable of having real data with real evidence from our process that helps our operators have more visibility of issues and fixes by using Tulip.
    Sr. Process Engineer, Dentsply
