Operational Excellence & Continuous Improvement

While there are many terms – Lean, Six-Sigma, DMAIC, Value Stream, Kaizen, 5-S, JIT, Waste, Takt Time, Process Improvement, Continuous Improvement, Value Stream, Problem Solving – these are simply tools that, when properly deployed, will improve the efficiency of a manufacturing operation and develop a foundation of Culture Change and Operational Improvement. This change focuses on eliminating waste, variability, and inflexibility in the pursuit of perfection. The ultimate result is reduced manufacturing costs, a sustainable competitive advantage, improved customer satisfaction, and smoother process flows. The challenge is knowing how to use the tools, when to use them, and in what situation.

Lean IS NOT a “slash and burn” philosophy. Its methods, when used properly and regularly, can get the most out of your processes and people, resulting in excellence. The process is not simple or fast because it builds upon itself as time goes on. But the Lean Journey will result in measureable and sustainable improvements for your organization. PolymerOhio Manufacturing Solutions has the tools and expertise to assist you in deploying these methods and developing the right culture.
