Create a sustainable quality culture by developing lean champions and improve productivity.
Vedzen’s specially crafted “Model C”, holistic quality culture building was proposed.
We applied a focused improvement approach to creating a culture of quality through continual improvement. Work stations and shop floor was organized through 5S and visual management principles. Work safety was improved through 5S projects. Operator, Supervisor, and Managers were trained on lean techniques through Gemba base focused improvement projects. Daily work management systems and morning standup meetings were introduced to improve visibility. Losses were identifying through analyzing operational performance and focused improvement projects are defined. Cross-functional action teams were formed to solve quality issues on an urgent basis to reduce customer complaints. Created a sustainable quality culture through total employee involvement and developed lean champions.
