Vorne Presents at Continuous Improvement Roundtable
Jun 22 2017

We are very pleased to have presented today at a very interesting continuous improvement roundtable hosted by The Paranet Group, with a special focus on metrics. Some of the topics covered were:

  • Metrics currently being collected by participants
  • How these metrics tie into their CI programs
  • How to drive improvement with visual tools

Another theme was the importance of going beyond accounting systems that measure internal costs to focus on value from a customer perspective (one of the core tenets of lean manufacturing).

Vorne Presents at 15th Annual Lean Network Conference
May 2 2017

This week we are exhibiting and presenting at the 15th Annual Lean Network Conference in Covington, Kentucky. The Lean Network is comprised of Honda and its Tier 1 automotive suppliers, who work together to improve QCD (Quality, Cost, Delivery) by sharing best practices for manufacturing.

The theme of this year’s conference is Leaning on Support, featuring expert speakers discussing the role of leadership and employee engagement in a lean enterprise. In addition to the conference program, the several hundred delegates attend a range of smaller talks, workshops, networking events, and plant tours.

This year, Vorne will lead a 90-minute workshop on Driving Improvement with Data, based on the principles of IDA (Information, Decision, Action), which is a proven and broadly applicable improvement methodology. One of the ways Vorne helps promote ideas for improving manufacturing productivity is by publishing information on a variety of best practices for manufacturing.
