Becoming a lean manufacturing machine in 2018 requires zero fasting, fad diets, or extra intense workouts.
What it does take is commitment to continuous improvement. But when you can trim lead time by 90 percent, cut work-in-progress inventory by 85 percent or more, and improve quality by 85 percent – it makes the work well worth it.
For an introduction to the tools that successfully Lean companies use to improve people, products and processes every day, Missouri Enterprise is partnering with the Cape Girardeau Chamber of Commerce and the Full Employment Council of Kansas City to offer half-day workshops – where you can experience in real-time the benefits without doing the full workout. By the time you are done with our class, you will be more than ready to take the next steps in taking Lean to your company.
They make becoming Lean no sweat! Here’s what Digital Print Inc. said about the workshop…
“My first thought was—I need to get back to the office as soon as possible to start implementing some of these concepts. The other big take away was that I am going to systematize the job and duty of each individual employee rather than having general descriptions and expectations. It’s always challenging to take time away from the office, but what you will gain through this workshop will more than make up for that time lost. We can now see things that we know we can fix and improve.”
— Steve Counts, President of Digital Print Inc., Springfield Mo.
