” Implementing lean strategies and management systems are critical for companies of all sizes to remain competitive in an increasingly global market”
This was the main message given to over 60 organisations attending the recent Annual WIT Lean Forum at WIT, for forward thinking organisations adopting or seeking to adopt Lean thinking, tools, and techniques to remain competitive in an increasingly global marketplace.
At Mann Engineering we are keen to implement lean principles in the move towards sustainable manufacturing strategies and continually seeking ways to improve our operational and overall enterprise excellence. We found the Lean forum to be an extremely useful and efficient way to guide us towards adopting the best practices in Lean manufacturing.
Interesting case studies on Lean implementation were provided by Jim O’Neill, Site Continuous Improvement Manager Lake Region Medical, Wexford and Shane Maher, Materials Manager of Depuy Orthopaedics Cork.
