Making Productivity Result from Lean Programmes

Wishing to reduce manufacturing cost in your factory? Need more capacity?

Or just concerned about how to engage your workforce in improvement?

Visit us at the Lean, Productivity and Continuous Improvement Summit 7th November at Ricoh Arena, Coventry

Jeremy Praud, Head of UK and Europe will be speaking on;

Making Productivity Result from Lean Programmes

Both UK Manufacturing Output and Value increased steadily from 1945 to 2007, but in the last 10 years have stalled.  Many Food & Drink manufacturers have embarked on Lean programmes, and M&S have even introduced Lean audits across their suppliers, but why are these improvement programmes not having the impact on productivity that might have been expected?  Jeremy Praud explores what makes Food & Drink Manufacturing different to Automotive, where the opportunity for productivity improvements can be found, and looks at the steps being taken by leading FMCG businesses to optimise the rate of results, and ensure they hit the bottom line.

Prefer a more hands on approach? Why not join Erica Bassford, Head of Aspire, for her workshop;

Prioritising Line Improvement – and making it stick

When it comes to implementing Manufacturing Improvement programmes, it is vital that managers are equipped with the skills to successfully manage and motivate their teams to drive and sustain improvement activity. In this practical workshop, complete with hands on ‘learning by doing’, we will be showing delegates how to engage shop floor personnel to apply new improvement techniques in the workplace.

Or if you are happy to have a chat come along to our stand O10 where one of our team will be pleased to discuss your specific challenges.

We’ve had the best of our best, which are better than most, working on this for years and they have not achieved these results. This has clearly been a significant breakthrough. The results show this.

It must be said that the concept of change management which LI were asked to bring in was a very big ‘ask’. Their work on the floor was very beneficial to change management. LI try to problem solve by using the workforce. This has to be done tactfully. They achieved it. They had the respect of the people on the floor and the management which is a major credit.
