Lean Start Project Objectives
  1. To increase the use and understanding of Lean as applied to our processes.
Key Challenges
  1. Getting familiar with the use of Lean methodologies and trying to understand the language of Lean.  Our production processes were very “traditional” by nature and how we measured effectiveness needed to be looked at.
Key Changes
  1. Through the use of the Lean Tools and Methodologies, we were able to tackle problems in our manufacturing process. Wwe all developed a culture of Continuous Improvement and instead of looking for the “big fix” we focused on incremental change.
Results
  1. The main outcome is that we can now identify and tackle waste in our manufacturing process.
