Extending your continuous improvement programs for operational excellence to the packaging hall
Enable faster flow of value to the customer
Experts have estimated that less than 5% of the steps and time taken in producing a product actually create customer value.
“Lean” thinking is a proven system for product development, mass production and other business areas to remove bottlenecks and reduce non-value-adding wastes, enabling a faster flow of value to your customers.
The two basic pillars of lean are:
- Continuous improvement
- Respect for people
This whitepaper is for businesses keen to move towards lean principals.
If you’re on the path already, you may have discovered that implementing lean is not as cut and dried as it might seem, because while you can effectively apply the principals through most of your manufacturing environment, the packaging area remains a black hole. That’s because in-depth visibility here is mostly non-existent. And what you can’t see and measure, you can’t manage and improve.
This whitepaper explores lean, how to implement it and how solutions such as iDSnet can remove the “packaging black hole” and help you drive continuous improvement.
