|This is exhausting!||Much BETTER takt time!|
We're committed to bringing increased value to our customers, along with growth and profitability for our company.
Implementing the principles of Lean Manufacturing has been a key part of that strategy.
Several years ago, we began at the beginning...
with Lean 101 training and 5S housekeeping processes.
Recently, with the help of MassMEP and a Massachusetts Workforce Training Grant, we completed multi-day training courses in VALUE STREAM MAPPING and PLANT LAYOUT.
We examined one of our most complicated fabrications...
- breaking down each step of the production process,
- walking the shop floor to measure a part's "journey", and
- developing plans for better work flow.
Now, we're applying these new skills to other parts & processes!
