Kaizen (Continuous Improvement) encompasses the full spectrum of Lean manufacturing.
Using the principles and tools of Lean Manufacturing will allow you to move your manufacturing process through Kaizen events, each one designed to “reduce waste”. Waste is built in to every process. We don’t see it because we have so many pressing issues that managing waste gets hidden. Schedule, expediting, and fire drills drive the day-to-day activities, and we can never get ahead of the curve — the more we operate in this mode, the more we have to continue to operate in this mode.
Our initial goal is to use the existing resources (people, equipment, floor space, materials, work hours) to increase profitability. The team at Kaizen Trek will do this personally, with your people, using your existing resources. This teaches your people how to start leading teams themselves. Using the Lean philosophy, Lean tool sets and your team’s training, we implement changes with you that trim away all the activities in the business that do not add value to your products or services, the waste.
