What is the Western REN Continuous Improvement Program?

The Western REN Continuous Improvement (CI) program introduces CI/LEAN Manufacturing to your company and your team.

In a company, Continuous Improvement is a team mentality shared by the employees to actively look for ways to improve the operation daily in small, incremental steps.

Continuous Improvement Project of the Western REN is the introduction and training of the CI philosophy. It teaches your entire team practical methods to see and address inefficiency in operation in their area of work.

The project is led by a consultant who works with managers and employees who together look for ways to improve the operation.

A CI project gives all employees the tools to improve efficiency and reduce waste. It helps unite everyone into a team with the common goal of improving efficiency.

Continuous Improvement Projects can improve profitability by reducing production time, costs, labour, and waste in general and improving workflow and key performance indicators.

Projects can include the 5Ss, SMED, Kanban, TIM WOODS waste reduction, and other LEAN process improvement methodologies. The projects are effective in physical processes, like manufacturing, and documentary processes like order flow and ERP/MRP.

Continuous Improvement projects can significantly improve the bottom line of your business operations for years to come.
