Under the guidance and training of Efficiency Works, we completed the five day comprehensive Lean Manufacturing program developed specifically for our workshop.
The program took our entire workforce on a journey discovering, some for the first time, interesting tools and concepts such as 5S, Value Stream Mapping, Group Problem Solving, and Set-Up Time Reduction.
As a group learning exercise it was highly successful and we have gone on to implement a number of strategies as an outcome of the course. Externally, the focus is now firmly directed towards achieving KPI's that include measuring client outcomes on a regular basis and providing feedback across the company. Internally we have more consensus on the need to maintain a clean and efficient workplace and an understanding of how we can keep a continual improvement culture.
