EXPERT ADVICE: LEAN MANUFACTURING MANAGEMENT MODEL
With the firm commitment to provide you with the best possible service, we identified a series of objectives that led to the creation of a new department: the Continuous Improvement Department.
This department has been created with the aim of:
- Helping the company establish a safe and productive working environment where continuous improvement forms part of the day-to-day.
- Identifying and utilising synergies within the company and standardising these practices.
- Training and supporting all staff in all departments to continually identify and eliminate ‘wastes’.
By ‘wastes’ or ‘misuses’ we are referring to overproduction, waiting times, transportation, overprocessing, superfluous inventory, unnecessary movements, defects and under-utilised human potential.
All of these objectives are part of the ‘Lean manufacturing’ management model. This model defines an organisation’s way of working, establishing a mission to detect, analyse and eliminate so-called ‘wastes’. The result is an organisation aiming in a single direction: the achievement of its objectives, which are broken down and adapted to the responsibilities of each position.
This model affects all areas of the company, from top-tier management, which is fundamental for the smooth running of the company, to the equally valuable operators and personnel that are involved in all SP Group’s activity.
As it is impossible to improve what cannot be measured, we need to focus on monitoring and analysing deviations in scorecards on a daily basis, taking all key performance indicators (KPIs) into account.
At SP Group we work hard to satisfy your needs by optimising our processes. Our goal is always to be more efficient, and for your experience with us to be as positive as possible.
