Having difficulty injecting lean into your Six Sigma deployment? Do the people in manufacturing believe your Belts speak a foreign language that is less understandable and practical on a daily basis on the plant floor? Are your manufacturing processes so unstable that Belts cannot obtain reliable information? Are your P&L leaders looking for another source of fast, yet sustainable margin improvement? Is your Six Sigma deployment hitting diminishing returns? Is your deployment in need of a refresh, an injection of new energy? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, this session will provide insight and some tools you can walk away with.
Brunswick is deploying Lean Six Sigma across their plants using its Waste-Free Manufacturing methodology. On the plant floor, Brunswick prefers using its Waste-Free Manufacturing methodology to eliminate waste and variation because it speaks a language and provides the tools in a step-wise manner that manufacturing people understand and find immediately actionable in driving out waste. Moreover, Waste-Free Manufacturing also provides guidance to plant people on creating their own mini-businesses on the plant floor (“company within a company”), yielding a culture change that both empowers and generates measurable results. Waste-Free Manufacturing increases margins materially, and in a manner permanent—results every P&L leader loves.
