Precise Flight, Inc. located in Bend, Oregon, announced today it has begun implementation of the Supplier Excellence Alliance (SEA), Lean Enterprise System.
The Lean Enterprise System (LES) is a continuous improvement system developed by aerospace, defense, and space suppliers, along with prime and tier-one contractors. The LES helps suppliers build new capabilities that will enable them to better support the emerging needs of their customers. The LES also helps establish a culture where lean production principles and standard work are applied in all areas of an organization to ensure sustained improvements in delivery and quality, while reducing lead time and cost.
Precise Flight, Inc., a leading supplier of integrated performance systems, manufactures and markets SpeedBrakes™, Precise Oxygen Equipment, the Pulselite® System, and HID and LED aviation lighting for aircraft and defense applications throughout the world. Since its inception in 1980, Precise Flight has upheld its commitment to quality and customer service, while providing integrated systems that improve upon the safety and performance of its markets.
Precise Flight's Pulselite® System is recognized as so critical to operational safety that it has been adopted by organizations that maintain the highest standards of safety and is the most broadly certified early recognition system on the market. Precise Flight also manufactures SpeedBrakes™ at the OEM level for Mooney, Columbia Aircraft Company, Kit Components, and The New Piper Aircraft Company, and PreciseLite HID Aviation Lighting for Mooney, Columbia Aircraft Company and Robinson Helicopter Company, and Precise Fixed Oxygen Systems for Cirrus Design Corporation and Columbia Aircraft Company, to name a few.
Precise Flight's CEO, Brad LeHuquet, notes, "In today's global market, it is imperative enterprises work together to reduce lead time, increase quality and decrease cost to their customers. Precise Flight is pleased to implement SEA's lean enterprise continuous improvement system to acquire the advanced tools that will keep Precise Flight competitive, now and into the future."
