The Lean Manufacturing Journey: Equipping Teams to Identify and Analyse Problems
This leading manufacturer of aluminium products had manufacturing sites on the East and West Coast of Australia. They had begun a Lean Manufacturing journey on the East Coast that was already realising benefits.
Implementing Lean Manufacturing in the West Australian operation presented a number of challenges. The initiative was handed down from East Coast-based management so there was a lack of ownership. To compound matters, the WA site had undergone management changes and there was a lack of management stability during the initial roll-out and morale was low.
