Lean Start Project Objectives
  1. Identify Lean improvements that can be incorporated into a new €3.6 million PET line being installed in Lough Gowna.
Key Challenges
  1. Working with an existing line and plans for the new line, the project was to identify the key process improvements that could be incorporated into the new line before it was installed.
Key Changes
  1. Twenty five (25) items for consideration were identified and many have already been incorporated in the design, layout and working standards for the new line.  Other items will be addressed when the new line is installed.
Results
  1. More streamlined operation resulting from identifying opportunities before installation.
