If it makes good sense to cut waste and improve customer advocacy on the shop floor, then it makes sense to do it through-out the business
(PRWEB UK) 30 November 2012
Many businesses have introduced lean on the shop floor, but there are still a lot of companies that have not taken the step of implementing the culture in the rest of the business.
That step can now easily be achieved using the Total Lean programme, from AIM, which has been structured following many years of experience of implementing ‘lean, with input from existing customers.
The programme incorporates a straight-forward check list, which includes:-
Communicate the organisation’s Vision and Strategy
Commit to a ‘Continuous and Sustainable improvement Plan’
Implement a communications strategy for full employee engagement
Prioritise areas of improvement
Define processes that contribute to problems
Measure the capability of each process
Analyse the data
Control process variability
Integrate methods into design/process cycles
John Sanders, Director at AIM Ltd. commented “If it makes good sense to cut waste and improve customer advocacy on the shop floor, then it makes sense to do it through-out the business. It’s not just manufacturing companies that benefit these days; we’re being asked to implement ‘lean’ in more and more service based companies as well.”
